Corporations like to gloat that one of the great achievements of capitalism has been its ability to feed 6 billion of us. Back in the heady 60s the world’s agriculture underwent the so-called “Green Revolution”- a massive expansion in the use and abuse of fertilisers, pesticides and mechanised, petrol fuelled intensive agriculture designed to meet the problem of global population growth.

Why did George Galloway perform in Parliament in such a low key way?

15-06-2006 16:35

George Galloway the MP for Bethnal Green and Bow made a rare appearance in the UK House of Commons on Wednesday 14 June 2006. Rare in the sense that his presentation was low key. Much lower key than many of his comments on the same subject, the Crossrail Bill, had been. In the course of the past five months, at least until Monday 10 April 2006, George Galloway’s comments made in the constituency have been emphatically unequivocally opposed to the CrossRail Bill. It was logically expected therefore that when his turn came to formally speak to his own petition lodged in September 2005 against the Crossrail Bill, he would maintain the standard of arguments and democratic outrage that were present in all those other comments he had made against the CrossRail plan. But Galloway did not maintain that standard in his presentation in the Hosue of Commons Crossrail Bill select committee yesterday..
