A Pox on the Land

Without the CAP, the agricultural land in the EU would become a desert, bereft of green things, dozy Cows and unintelligible farmers. Someone thinks this might not be true.

CAP - rather than being the saviour of the countryside - has been an environmental disaster, creating pollution with no economic benefit, and requiring more chemicals and energy use than had market forces been allowed to run. By encouraging the pre-emptive use of antibiotics, it threatens to create antibiotic-resistant diseases.
Not a good report card by anyone's standards.
