Commendable petition to maintain the ban on some pesticide that is apparently killing bees.

(Well worth signing, but be aware that once they have your email they'll badger you with whiny emails to sign petitions about the NHS and TTIP and all sorts of other left-wing nonsense)

It'll help if you sign a petition to limit the sugar in jam and other confectionery, if 38 Degrees start one (Wouldn't put it past them).

How many zeroes should we add to the cheque? Surely enough to match the AGW calamity, at the very least.

Nope they are also pollinators and you may actually be killing a hoverfly.

Then again I love bumblebees......

Wasps and hoverfly are easily discerned by the non-stupid, wasps do however also serve as pest control preying on mosquitoes and such.
