Tate and Lyle are significant Tory party donors.

They helped pay for the Brexit campaign and received these as rewards: £72M tax free bung from the Tories to allow them to dodge import taxes, humane working conditions and environmental standards by allowing the import of sugar cane. Previously of course EU standards prevented this from being imported into the EU.

And today we find that Tate & Lyle get to destroy the entire UK bee population for their profits. This flies in the face of science and as previously mentioned, every other developed country.

It seems the pennies they bribed the Tories with has paid dividends.
