Poor Impoverished Farmers

What would poor farmers do if we stopped paying them subsidies? Well they could always live on their Ministerial Salary.
A campaign to force European countries to divulge how they divide up billions of euros in farm subsidies has spread from Britain and Denmark to engulf the Netherlands, with the Dutch agriculture minister being forced to disclose publicly his personal farming interests. The minister, Cees Veerman, it was revealed, received about 190,000 euros, last year for his farms in France and the Netherlands.
The information comes after pressure from British and Danish campaigners, following success in their home countries. Good Luck to them and may they long keep up the good work.
