I HAVE just seen Hilary Benn on television and I wrote down three direct quotes from him.
"We've already seen food riots in other countries."
"We are going to need a big increase in food production."
"I want British farmers to produce as much food as possible."

We need some joined-up government here and a stop to this lunacy which, believe it or not, has the support of the Green guru in Cambridge, Mr Tony Juniper.
