I want my €116 back. Do you?

The EU's budget has been published, and the total to be spent on agriculture and ancillary matters comes to, get this, €57,525,729,686.00. Yup, there it is, on page 19.

Which is quite a lot of money. I make that £44,870,069,155.00.

Taking the population of the EU as being 497,198,740 that gives a cost of the CAP, per head, in direct costs only as €115.69 or £90.25.

(Edited to remove the superfluous renderings of the figure in full. Copy and paste problems not seen at the time of posting).

Strange how they not only charge us through the budget but also manage to put food prices up.

It's amazing how little money it costs to screw up the world food market.

These could be useful numbers to follow on the lottery. They worked a treat for the nomenklatura.

The head's spinning. And all I need right now is one trillionth of that amount.
