Monty Don, the former BBC Gardener\’s World presenter, said the UK could run out of food "within weeks" because the country is so dependent on imports and it was essential for the country to grow more of our own food.
He urged businesses around the country to follow the lead of the National Trust: "If every household, business, office or factory dug up a patch of land there would literally be millions of allotments made available. This is just the start of something really big."
Mr Don even suggested every politician could have an allotment and there could be a vegetable patch outside Number 10 Downing Street. He said a communal vegetable patch could be as small as a herb garden tended by just one person but was an opportunity for the whole office to learn about seasonality and growing food.
"If every organisation and company did the same and then it could transform the health and wellbeing of the nation as well as significantly contributing to our national food supply," he said. "In this time of crisis and chaos this is exactly the kind of practical enlightened action that will rebuild and create a better future."
Apparently Mr. Don has never heard of the concepts of the division of labour and specialisation. Or if he has he doesn\’t like them very much.
Why do people pay attention to the views of such ill informed idiots?
