This has sent me into a frenzy of righteous anger
EU Obs is reporting that Franz Fishler has been speaking about the Common Agricultural Policy, and I quote from the article,
"I would like to debunk three myths whose net effect is simply to waste time and energy and to prevent progress".
Mr Fischler rejected arguments that EU and US farm policies were not harmonised, that recent EU farm reform was 'too little too late' and that it was detrimental for developing countries.
Please understand he is not talking about the piddling reform that was hamstrung by amongst others the French, but about the CAP in general. There are none so blind as cannot see.
