Re: Farm subsidy

Fact check: Those stats are a bit misleading, it shows the amount of money paid to entities in the UK, but it doesn't break it down to show how much was paid for land in the UK.

For instance, Tate & Lyle Europe is the EU subsidiary of American Sugar Refining, and has sugar growing farms all across the EU; all the subsidies for those farms are paid to the company in the UK.
