I emailed our government here in the UK about these goings on, i mentioned the armed raids on organic farms and the woman that was arrested growing
veg in her garden.
This is the reply that i got :
"Dear Gary, responsibility for Codex now rests with the UK Department for Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) - see link
However, as somebody that knows about Codex and how it works, I can assure you that what you have read is simply not credible. Codex is an
intergovernmental organisation and sets standards that aim to protect consumers and facilitate world trade. The idea being that if the 184 member
countries agree a food standard then the very same countries should not be able to throw up bogus reasons to restrict trade with another country.
They can of course restrict trade is they have valid public health grounds, and Codex would not prevent them doing so. The Codex standards are
voluntary, and as such Governments are not mandated to introduce them. The reality is that our current food laws are largely consistent with Codex
standards, which is not surprising since our experts have contributed during the development of Codex standards alongside experts from around the
world. In some instances our laws may actually go further, e.g. where we have reasons to set a higher level of protection.
In a nutshell, the ridiculous legislation/law enforcement that you mention is not coming to the UK.
I hope the above reassures you.

I responded by telling him thank you very much for the information and reassurance that the UK won't go this way, but i informed him that these
events were credible, they happened, were in the press and security videos show them happening !
I also informed him about the armed raids on Gibson guitars.
I think it was Henry Kissinger who said a couple of years back that, in the future, "we will use food as a weapon".
Maybe 'they' want a revolution, as we all know, intel does double-think very, very well.
