There are examples of politicans saying things about ragwort that are often very untrue. This is mainly because of them being supplied incorrect information by campaigners.

Jonathan Djanogly MP 21st March 2003 Making a speech with suspect statistical analysis and then making a wierd and distinctly odd stement concerning the Cinnabar Moth.

Shona McIssac MP 21st March 2003 Making the same strange claim regarding the occurence of the cinnabar moth.

Baroness Masham 17th October 2003 Repeating the dodgy statistics and a whole set of false claims.
