LETTER: We need bees – protect them

Seems like Liz Truss, our environment minister, is not so concerned with our environment, and has approved the use of neonicotinoids (the pesticides that scientists know damage bees).

We need our bees! Without them we are lost. Are you that short-sighted, Liz Truss? It’s your future too.

I’m calling on our local MP Nusrat Ghani to ask Prime Minister David Cameron to step in and enforce the ban on bee-killing pesticides. For the bees and all of us.
