HEMP ON THE BEEB
BBC TWO will feature hemp tomorrow and Friday, 20/21 December on the Working Lunch Programme, 12:30 or 1 pm. Recently on BBC Radio a woman was on talking about hemp and was able to tell the truth about all this 'organic cotton' - she noted that it used more land than cotton grown with pesticides and therefore used more water! But the hippy-trippy happy-clappers do not want to know, as long as they can go on with the greenwash they are not bovvered. Click here to be taken to Working Lunch.
HFV wants to give a welcome to the new kid on the block in terms of blogs, and that is http://www.jessthekid.blogspot.com/. this is run by a 9-year-old girl who is making fun of the press! In an interview with Jessica, she told me she was going to be wathching their moves and posting on her blog when they get it wrong. Jess, you're gonna be one busy girl...
Her tone is that of a St Trinian's girl with a brain, and speaking of that venerable institution of higher learning, check out the new St Trinian's movie, out this Friday (21/12). Colin Firth, who owns the soon to be opened Eco Shop in London, is playing the Education Minister in it. His last film, "When was the last time you saw your Father", includes Bobby Pugh of The Hemp Shop playing a cameo role.
