Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Agriculture in Italy and Spain is heavily sponsored by the dear EU and it developed in a certain way because they're never held responsible for anything, never checked if they respect workers' rights, never penalised - no subsidies retracted no nothing...food must be cheap at all costs, right. Less rigorous nations......I'm sure you've already dealt with them.
Big bad EU defines the standards but creating the actual laws and regulations, checks, controls and enforcement is the respective country's job.

The subsidies are the way they are because, again, the respective country (its industry) used its influence to shape them to its (its industry's) advantage.

You're barking up the wrong tree.
