From Thatcher to Blair. From the Cold War to the War on Terror. From its shocking start to the nerve-shredding finale, The Poisonous Past takes the reader to the darkest corners of British life. It is a story from the places far away from the glossy image of Great Britain Plc. The sink estates, the baseball caps and hoodies. Discarded needles and burnt out cars. And the faceless man in anonymous offices whose job is to make sure the lid stays on.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Throw in a few references to the war in the North of Ireland and the suggestion that a few mercenaries decimated the Irish Republican Army and you will wonder if the writer is on some type of hallucinogenic drug. He certainly was non compos mentis judging by the huge volume of typographical errors, I lost count when I reached a hundred.
Is English a second language for this writer? Or was there not enough money in the budget for a proof reader? I normally pass my books on to others but in this case I slipped this furtively into the charity box as I was too embarrassed to admit to having bought it in the first place. Apr 03, Angie rated it really liked it. This is a 5 star novel with a 4 star rating because there are some issues with the editing which, I feel, need to be addressed.
I felt that two of the characters names were mixed up at one point in the book and I found that really confusing Jed and Jake. I'm frustrated to rate this only 4 stars as I really loved the story.

It provided a fresh perspective on Thatcher's Britain for those too young to remember her reign , the Miners' Strike and a stark look at the issues faced in communities across Scotland today, and throughout the world. The exploration of youth apathy is important and much-needed in the current climate.
I am unsure as to whether this book was self-published as I couldn't find much info on Glenmill Publishing, but in the right hands this could be a big hit. I look forward to reading more of this writer's work.

The UPGRADE project will coordinate lab- and glasshouse-based research in the UK with field studies in Ethiopia and Kenya to allow the rapid integration of the new, low-toxin varieties into existing breeding programmes in sub-Saharan Africa. By building on their work and applying modern breeding approaches, the collaboration aims to speed up the process of crop improvement.

But it is a crop that could be much more than that, especially in the face of climate change. We are looking at introducing other agronomically important traits, which would lead to the expanded cultivation of grass pea. But one woman lies paralysed on the ground in front of the group. The effects of the disease involve paralysis, particularly of the lower limbs. You have to eat a lot, and pretty much nothing else to see these effects. But the stigma means that it had become a forgotten crop.

It was banned from certain states in India because of outbreaks of neurolathyrism. In addition to its characteristic blue flowered hue, grass pea also features white and pink flowers indicating different genetic backgrounds. We are trying to find out how the plant produces the toxin.

This is part of ongoing research, to inform the breeding that we need to do. We need to produce varieties that are high-yielding, work well in the field and can withstand all the environmental stresses the plants suffer in Sub-Saharan Africa. In India they make a flour out of it and cut it with gram flour so that it makes tasty chapatis and dal.
Here at the John Innes Centre we have made a humous out of it, and it was very delicious, far tastier than what I can buy locally.
