World Food Prices

Are European food subsidies paid through the Common Agriculture Policy being cut as world food prices surge!?!

I doubt it, seeing as France and many other countries would never allow it - hence why we need to get out of the EU asap.

Nope. Instead, The Badger has suggested we increase Third World aid to compensate them for the increased food prices that we caused by insisting on this bio-fuel nonsense, which is just an excuse to pay subsidies to our farmers (and in the USA, as it happens). There's no problem they can't make worse.
