It baffles me how easy it is to frighten Irish people with all kinds of implausible scenarios just to stop criticism. The politicians are adept at it and so are the present-day Luddites.
One lesson the Irish should have learned a long time ago is that the organic potato deserves no loyalty from us to preserve it naturalness with all its weakness to disease. It more than decimated our people already. Anything that improves its taste, health, appearance, and value has my vote. And as for the argument that gourmet foreigners wont buy them ... heck who cares, they don't as it is and we import potatoes from all over the place, even the illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
