Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Meacher resigned on the issue of genetically engineered crops, which was the last straw. Unfortunately, he blew a lot of credibility when he went all conspiracy theory on 9/11 in an op-ed for the Guardian.
