Re: TBF farmer subsidies are dropping

The Tories (a daycare organisation for Oxbridge alumi who lack the drive to start their own business and the connections to crash someone else's) have 'right-sized' subsidies originally conceived by the French (I don't know the specifics, I assume someone needed to buy some rural votes and/or saw an opportunity to pay land-owners a crap-ton of money for doing nothing).

The upshot is that bigger land-owners still get a lot of money, mid-sized ones do okay, and small farmers do not.

I have no idea what this has to do with bicycles.
