“One blustery day six years ago – at the start of The Independent on Sunday’s successful GM campaign – I travelled to Aberdeen to meet a man who had been sent to Coventry.
Dr Arpad Pusztai was then the bogeyman of the British scientific establishment. No less a figure than Lord May – then the Government’s chief scientific adviser, now president of the Royal Society – had accused him of violating “every canon of scientific rectitude”, and ministers and top scientists had queued up to denounce him.

His punishment was draconian; his research was stopped, his team disbanded and his data confiscated (see box).
