Spain Showing Signs Of Rethinking Anti-GM Policy

22/10/10 -- There's nothing like a spate of high prices to get people thinking about the validity of their anti-GM policy is there?

In a move reminiscent of the Indians suddenly relaxing their own stringent import regulations once they started running out of wheat, the Spanish are now taking US corn for the first time in years.

It's a bit like the "I'll only eat organic if it's not TOO expensive" brigade isn't it?

Do you want scruples in that paella, Senor?

It's also interesting to note from this report that "Tarragona wheat stocks are close to full capacity....after a flurry of imports from Romania and Bulgaria in recent weeks."
