In the UK alone there are millions of allotment owners,veg gardeners who have yearly stashed awy seeds from their best crops over decades...
I still have some tomato seeds that my grandfather gave me 35+ years ago,which I sometimes grow still,and get more seeds from.
Loads of folks have so many different varieties of so many plant types, that this bill would be be impossible to enforce IMO.
WTF will they do-send cops to burn down veg gardens or spray round up on everything like they do in Columbia with the dreaded cocoa shrubs?
Search everyone house/shed/greenhouse for any seeds and bust them?
Riot cop raids at local farmers markets?
I highly doubt it-although I'm sure they would love to have that power,it just would not work.
Imagine getting busted for possesion of the "wrong" strain of tomato/garlic/basil/ginger etc...
It defies all rational thought,and reminds me of Judge Dredd comics I used to read,where the judges would do a sweep in a block,and bust folks for
owning 0.5grams above the salt/sugar ration.
When the EU start trying on this BS,you know they have lost the plot and are ruled over by the mega corps and banks IMO.
Quit the damned EU now UK,save £56million a DAY,and no more nonsense rules from brussels-we could run our own country-you know like we did before the
EU took over...
how's that for a radical idea?
