I am still feeling disappointed in Delia.
Claiming to eschew the “politics of food”, she makes this sweeping political statement:
“If the whole world goes organic then the state of the Third World will really be twice as bad as it is at the moment and I’m much more interested in people getting enough to eat.”
Get your facts right, Delia. (And spare me the sanctimony).
Farming organically actually improves the food security of poor countries. It also means farmers in the two-thirds world are not reliant on agrochemicals – which are bad for their health and purse and environment.
The only ‘Delia effect’ I am getting right now is intense irritation at her misinformation.
