Brexit could further harm woeful rural payments system

An MP spoke about talking with a farmer who voted BREXIT. His motive was that an EU body, DEFRA, was holding up his subsidy payments.

He did not understand that DEFRA is a UK Government department - who the EU had fined for not distributing the farming subsidies in a timely fashion.

He expects his subsidies to continue after BREXIT. Good luck with the same DEFRA in charge of their distribution - without any EU body to give them a kick.
