“French President Jues Chirac said Britain’s behaviour was “pathetic”, adding he was shocked by the “arrogance of several rich countries” in the talks.” BBC. WTF is the Farmer’s Poodle on about ???
France gives LESS to the EU than the UK.
French farmers are calling the shots here, not Chirac. The CAP is a pile of crap and everyone except the French farmers know that. For the French, the CAP is just a trough into which they can shove their snouts as and when they will, corruption included. If it wasn’t for the CAP then we wouldn’t have to suffer all the derisory produce they ship over here which they pretend has been grown more efficiently – has it bollocks. Fact is that for what it is, and for the actual cost it is junk food. Crap. Rubbish. The simple fact is that the French (as a nation) do not want equal competition, they do not want to live in a community made of equals, they do not want to see the UK in a better position than them. Well that’s just tough isn’t it.
Now, will someone blow up that bloody tunnel ?
