Smith, Ashley W., 1948- :End of G.E. moritorium. MG business - mercantile gazette, 27 October 2003.

Reference Number: DX-023-122

Helen Clark is train driver of a fast-moving train called 'end of G.E. moritorium'. In the wagon behind her can be seen doctors and scientists happily waiting for the moratorium to end. The train has two possible tracks to take; it appears to be going straight ahead where it will run over a shrieking woman tied to the railway lines. She is dressed in cabbage leaves and carrots. Rod Donald is the points man and is standing beside the track, whistling and leaning on the points mechanism which is called 'Supreme Court support'. Refers to the ending of the moratorium on genetic engineering and the refusal of the Green Party to do deals with the Labour government over the issue.
