The UK's 2008 EU farming subsidy millionaires

There are 16 UK organisations that trousered over a million pounds last year from the EU, led by Czarnikow Group Limited, which leads the table with a cool £6,751,558.50 from 'market schemes'. Czarnikow would appear to dabble in sugar.

KG Growers Ltd of Kent picked up £3,170,052.01, G's Growers Ltd of Ely £2,908,857.66 and Berryworld Producer Organisation of Broxbourne £1,943,996.51.

I've also had a look at the French equivalent site, and unless my eyes deceive me, we are rank amateurs at this subsidy lark. Doux, a French concern, is to be found in Western Brittany, and raked in - I am NOT making this up - €62,824,449.59. Doux looks to be to chickens what Bernard Matthews is to turkeys.

As to the Emerald Isle, Abbott Irl made a comparatively derisory €680,898.95.

The reigning Belgian heavyweight champions are European Fruit Co-operation of Sint-Truiden with €7,829,726.08

Those with the language skills can see what the Latvians, Slovenes, Swedes etc are up to here.

And that's your taxes and my taxes as well. What possible justification is there for handing over hundred of millions to these companies? Leave them to fend for themselves, I say.

Amen, brother.
