Emily Wilson in the Guardian sums up the story thus far on whether or not the UK is about to lift its moratorium on GM food crops. (The debate is over; let the discussion begin.) The findings of the focus groups were by far the most interesting outcome of the Great Public Debate on GM:
"These were made up of people who had no links with biotech or anti-GM groups, plucked from across the social spectrum and deposited in workshops. After they had spent time learning about GM, their views evolved from uncertainty to concern.
As the official report puts it: 'When people in the general population become more engaged in GM issues, and choose to discover more about them, they harden their attitudes to GM.'"
