Oh do beehive, RBlock.
If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

This is why Australia has had such a huge export business in Bees for over 10 years now. Apiarists of the world unite.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Define win

Thanks Sizzle, a most eloquently descriptive definition of how to lose.

sting the once ? Bees are nice wasps are not. :wink:

The sting in a bee is jagged whilst the wasp sting is more smooth.

I thought I had spotted a gap in the health food market. Wasp honey. It's not going well. Can't get the feckers to stay in their hive. Any suggestions?

Remember the bee-killer pesticides which hundreds of thousands of 38 Degrees members like you helped to get banned across Europe? [1]

Turns out, they’re available for sale on eBay. [2]

Two days ago, the charity Buglife told the 38 Degrees office team that the bee-killer pesticides were for sale in the eBay marketplace. It took just three hours and 3,380 38 Degrees members emailing eBay to get the pesticides taken down. [3]

Today, Buglife called again - the bee-killer pesticides are back up. It’s a classic wheeze: wait until the fuss has died down, then get back to business as usual.

Bad luck eBay, we’ve noticed.

Click here to write to eBay and tell them to take these banned pesticides off their site for good - and change their policies to make sure they never go up again.

eBay are hugely proud of their reputation as a safe, trusted marketplace. They even have rules which, in theory, should stop illegal products going up for sale. [4]

So these illegal pesticides break their own rules AND the European ban. And on top of that, the fact that they’re quietly back up for sale again two days after eBay ‘took them down’ is just infuriating.

Emailing eBay in our thousands worked on Wednesday. Now let’s do it again - but let’s make sure this time that they fix their broken policies and stop selling illegal bee-killer pesticides once and for all.

I've signed although its not Syngenta you have to worry about its the continual piss poor judgement of one David errant hedge-born skainsmate pribbling idle-headed giglet Cameron our so called leader. Forget party politics the guy is an accident that has already happened.
