Why are farmers so protected? The rest of us suffer without recompense. The sick, the unemployed, the less privileged and many others have no automatic right to maintain their income or living standards. Businesses that make poor decisions stop trading and surely to have remained as beef farmers after the evidence of the last decade must be poor business judgement?
The list of financial help ladled out to farmers is endless. What will be the next crisis in which the poor will have to help the rich?
