The Sunday Quote - 114

Of the Ferench the EU, Blogs and North.

In reply to a request for a ''very simple guide to the EU's Common Agricultural Policy's life '' Dr Richard North wrote this week:

''Can't be done simply, without distorting it. The very story is the complexity.'' North however provides a valuable summary. '' In a nutshell, though, the story of the CAP is the story of the EEC/EU. One of the primary reasons why the EEC was set up in the first place - from a French perspective- was to devise a support system for French agriculture, by which means other countries, first Germany and then the UK could pay for it.''
