Pesticide money

There's a ruckus in the British bee world according to The Independent on Sunday.

The British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) has received sponsorship from pesticide companies claiming that it can influence them by getting close to them. In particular these companies produce pesticides that are lethal to bees if not used correctly. Some affiliated organisations disagree and, having failed to vote down the grants, are reported to be threatening a break-away. The BBKA website is keeping a low profile on the affair.
