There is nothing like a Dane

Where else would you find farmers so confident in their ability to make a living, that the head of the farming lobby would come up with this:

"The higher the market price of our goods, the more difficult it becomes to defend [EU] agricultural subsidies,’ explained Peter Gæmelke, the president of Danish Agriculture, a farming lobby group. ‘We expect that prices will remain high, so there is less of a need for subsidies than before.’"...There are some parties that will tax us to death in order to take away the subsidy,’ said Gemælke. ‘I would definitely prefer to do away with the subsidies. They put us in an unfortunate situation where we receive money, property prices rise which lead to these price rises, and then we get taxed.

I am not expecting the NFU to declare solidarity with our splendid Danish friends....

Meanwhile, ARLA - they of Lurpak - are being targeted for boycotting because of the latest Mohammed cartoon row, so I may well switch back to it, having abandoned it when they bowed and scraped to guess which lobby during the previous row.
