Sir: George Bennett (letter, 4 June) asserts that the reason for the Government's "enthusiasm" for GM food is "presumably because it is under irresistible pressure from the US to accept exports of GM food and its related chemicals." Why "presumably"? Mr Bennett's letter is a depressing example of modern political discourse. Could it not be that the Government's open-minded approach to GM food is determined by the merits of the arguments? Why can we not learn to discuss policies on their merits, rather than attribute devious motives to those with opposing views to our own?
