the uk farmers will continue to be subsidised by the european union regardless of their total incompetence. since thatcher, the uk has seen working
class industries destroyed due to 'market forces', yet farming survives and will continue to do despite the fact that the industry operates at a
fundemental economic loss.
the uk farm industry is a joke. it created 'mad cow disease' by feeding cattle on its own species. it spread the disease by knowingly transporting
infected cattle so other farmers could reap the rewards of further EU subsidies.
meanwhile of course, working class industries (coal, docks, cars etc) have been sold off. makes me sick.
