British Farm Subsidy...
I came across this interesting article from Le Monde, a French newspaper. Apparently, the largest portion of the EU's agricultural money spent in the UK goes to the nobility, and not to actual farmers. HRH the Queen received 800 000 Euros ($1.2 million Canadian), while her son received half that amount. Most people received under 36 Euros ($48 Canadian), while poor Mr. Kelman received only 45 centimes (75 cents Canadian)!
