The Green Party built its reputation on progressive social policies, but we were surprised by its anti-science stance. It told us that the party is proposing an EU-wide ban on research involving embryonic stem cells, citing the vague possibility of "unforeseen outcomes harmful both to individuals and to society".
I thought this lot were progressives, now I find out they're either hoodoo merchants or a bit dim. Great. What a bloody waste. Might as well have gone for the Liberals in the end after all.
Hope they don't do too well now, or it'll be a shitload of good science down the swanee, and I'll have helped it to happen. Bollocks.
