British food demand can change the outlook of farmers

Jamie Doward opinion on the state of British agriculture reminds us that the problems of the food system are larger than those incurred by the scandal of horse meat ("British agriculture in crisis as losses cultures "relentless" stack up flooding woes ", News). Wondered if rightly demand British food may cause long-term change in the prospects of British agriculture.

is essential that we, the buyers are turning to a broader set of values, including the production of our food and how, and the effects on local businesses and the city and country. Buying local food is a way out of this impasse. But we can not let the buyers. Large retail more than 90% of the food we eat at home. Until government policy begins to support a greater diversity of retail supermarkets must assume primary responsibility to pay for food producers at a fair price that takes into account the cost of production to give a future , British agriculture.

Charter concealment

We are deeply concerned for justice and safety legislation. It was written in response to legal cases involving allegations of UK complicity in the secret renditions, torture and inhuman treatment. Bill is a law of concealment. Neither the public nor the victims or their lawyers and the media have the right to know.

court records could be kept secret forever. Secret courts could extend plainclothes police, suspicious deaths in custody and deaths in the army. The measures contained in the bill is an attack against an open and accessible justice, which threaten the right to a fair trial and the rule of law. Journalism at its best discovers the truth and the bill is intended to hide the evidence. MEPs vote your account and to oppose proposals secret courts of justice and security law next week.
