Subsidising Danish Prisons

This is just bizarre.

One of the more curious recipients of European Union farm susbidies are Danish prisons. Seven prisons receive farm subsidies from EU for running the grassland and farms in and around prison lands.
This just goes to show how subsidies which are designed for one purpose, end up becoming distorted beyond recognition.

The thing is - will this rubbish be ended by us ending with the EU or can we make changes from within?

I am sure you have guessed my view, but this blog is designed to show up the EU's idiocies and let people make up their own mind.

I saw a TV programme about the Danish prisons, they are allowed to keep their babies, they are really cossetted and the authorities believe it helps with their rehabilitation. Perhaps our prisons should seek EU funding too, wonder what PrisonWorks thinks about this.
