Once upon a time a distinguished European leader almost described the EU's Common Agricultural Policy as:
... a programme which uses inefficient transfers of taxpayers money to bloat rich French landowners and so pump up food prices in Europe, thereby creating poverty in Africa, which we then fail to solve through inefficient but expensive aid programmes. The most stupid, immoral state-subsidised policy in human history, give or take Communism.
One fascinating feature of the policy is that huge sums of money (€55 billion a year is the total pot!) go to individual people (ie farmers).
Some of whom are Rich.
So, who gets all that money?
At last, a website and a team of people devoted to digging out that information and sharing it with us.
