Ian Paisley defends CAP farm subsidies

About EU carries a snippet from the proceedings in Westminster yessterday, in Ian Paisley defended the current settlement of the Common Agricultural Policy, even though the British front bench is currently questioning its value, whilst deflecting attacks on the UK’s EU rebate. He also reckons that Polish farmers don’t know their potatoes from their onions. That’ll be news to some Polish friends of mine!
