Right, something of a marathon post about to start.
Whilst demonstrating a groundswell of support for Wye is great and quite possibly essential, what we definitely need is thorough, reasoned arguments.
I will get the ball rolling with my own thoughts; feel free to add any of your own, as I am by no means an authority on any of this, especially the research-related reasons.
Some in the petition thread are a fantastic start; this thread gives room for more detailed debates.
I'll take this in sections, feel free to add to the relevant section or even add a new section if you think of a completely different argument.
And of course you are most welcome to present counter-arguments- let's face it, College will do!
