Brexit could further harm woeful rural payments system


The alternative is that after Brexit, UK farmers go back to actually producing food efficiently, negating the need for subsidies.

The whole system was set up to keep militant French farmers, with their unviably small farms, from going broke and jamming up Paris with their tractors. Then we got subsidies for farmers to NOT grow things on their land! The dumping of the EU’s CAP is just one of many things that will galvanise the UK economy once we orient ourselves to trading with the rest of the world.
