Why don't we have a big argument about 'Natural' beekeeping - head in sand, or the future of beekeeping?

It would be good to have a 'no holds barred' debate between those with strong views on both sides.

I think all the adherents of both sides should swap, and argue the opposite case for one evening: then we'd find out the weak bits of both arguments plenty quick.

I'll be there! Not that I know anything about Natural Beekeeping, but it will be very educational for me, as well as good entertainment ;)

Why didn't I just get another dog?

Why don't you get another computer!

Oh dear, I think they were expecting you, but standing room only!

How did it go later on? I had to leave at 21.20 ish.

Did the debate get going? I couldn't get much reaction, whatever crazy statements I made :)

Nobody even got grumpy when I said spraying crops was good, cos it killed bee parasites too!

Life's hard for a Saturday evening Troll . . .
