There is much controversy around the Government backed GM Nation? 
public debate. Not least that the Government won't pay any attention 
to its outcomes, or that it will twist the results to its own ends. 
However, many groups working to stop the commercialisation of 
genetically modified crops feel people must get involved else the 
Government will simply say no one cares. Even worse those working for 
industry and supporting GM will have their say and then the 
Government will use the debate to fully commercialise GM crops. The 
GeneWatch UK website has a section dedicated to the 
website, describing how to get involved (both nationally and locally) 
and also looking critically at how the debate has developed.
