Chris Evans Arrested Over Cash-For-Honours

We got the shock of our lives this morning, when someone phoned Linda to tell her that a man looking very much like me had reportedly been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police's Specialist Crime Directorate last night in connection with the "cash for peerages" scandal.

Just in case anyone else thinks it might have been me on the receiving end of Lord "Abe" Supergrass, I can reassure you that this is a case of mistaken identity (or perhaps identity theft). The arrested man is believed to be Sir Christopher Evans, aka. "The Biotech King", multi-millionaire founder of Merlin Biosciences and a close friend of Tony.

Through his companies, Christopher Evans is a key supporter of the science PR and lobby group "The Science Media Centre", a leading promoter of GM companies. This group is believed to have orchestrated a secret campaign aimed at discrediting the controversial BBC thriller "Fields of Gold" about genetically modified crops. They have also been accused of attempting to smear journalists working on anti-GM stories for "The Guardian" and other publications.

So, phhhhhew! A man with lots of hair and no glasses. Not someone who could possibly be mistaken for me.
