A Free Swede’s Perspective

Johann Norberg has a couple of great EU anecdotes Firstly, the very countries we are trying to help overcome the destruction of the Tsunami were recently the victims of EU anti-dumping duties. Surely now would be a good time to reverse that decision. More information on that story can be found here. Secondly he quotes Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary, who is apparently the happy recipient of CAP money.
I have 200 cows so I probably received 20 000 euros from the European Union [in 2004]. Do you think it’s fair that a multimillionaire receives that much money? No it’s ridiculous. I think the whole system of subsidies for European agriculture is absolutely ridiculous.
Well guess what? So do I. Its also nice to know that not all Swedes fit the Polly Toynbee stereotype.
