    Re: Sound familiar?

    The Canadians have a complex system of production quotas and import levies that restrict supply and hence keep the price at a sustainable levy for producers. The industry isn't subsidised by the...
  2. Re: Could anyone help me with single farm payments advice?

    It seems clear to me that your agent is either incompetent, dishonest or possibly both.

    IMO you need to seek competent professional advice to sort this matter out. I could put you in touch with...
  3. Re: Could anyone help me with single farm payments advice?

    Agreed, that's a massive red flag to me too.

    I'd be looking at specialist advice from a third party with a good reputation. the current agent appears to be either incompetent or worse. But as you...
  4. Re: Could anyone help me with single farm payments advice?

    I would echo what big andy has said, we can't say for sure without all the details but it seems very much as if your agent is at fault here and is obfuscating to cover it up, it's more likely good...
  5. Re: Could anyone help me with single farm payments advice?

    Well i wouldn't. this problem has been ongoing for 3 years and your agent hasn't resolved it, and more importantly doesn't seem to be doing anything to try and resolve it, if i were you i'd be...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    A rebate isn't a contra, it's a discount.

    If i sell you something for a 100 but offer a 20% discount, you've paid 80.

    If i sell you something for 100 and you sell me something back for 20,...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    No we don't. Firstly it's the figure before the UK rebate is applied, the rebate is deducted at source so the uk government never pays it, it's knocked off the total before payment. It ignores the...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    Bear in mind that CAP subsidies in their current form are intended to be paid to the person actually farming the land. the reason that in many case in the UK it is not is because our govt, not the...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    Why should the way an MP voted in a free public vote over a year ago have any bearing whatsoever in whether they are appointed to the cabinet? what a bizarre suggestion. surely ability should be the...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    But it doesn't say it all, because our contributions to the EU are not a zero sum game, there are other indirect economic benefits to membership that aren't quantified in a simple what we pay versus...

    Well if we go for jack's 'just leave' option, the UK will end up as one big onshore tax haven, so we won't need the offshore ones anymore.

    That's how politics work Jack, like it or not, spin and leaks are all part of the game, it works for both sides and both sides did it, if anything the leave campaign was significantly more dishonest,...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    If this is the case, how come we let them decide on this important issue in the first place? surely best just to ignore the referendum result, if the public's judgement is as poor as you say.

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    To be fair, that's because it is a bad idea.

    It creates uncertainty and disruption and it's a wholly unnecessary risk that could have been avoided and th best case scenario at the end of it is not...

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    It's not the EU politicians holding the gun, we're holding it ourselves, i suppose we could always not pull the trigger but, you know, taking back control and all that.

    Re: Brexit, yes or no?

    This is pretty much the crux of the matter for me. Even if leaving was a good idea, you've still got to trust our current crop of politicians to deliver it.

    This is an example of the sort of...

    He was a British citizen, born on the UK, how would border controls have prevented him from entering the country?

    Re: Brexit reality

    so a deal between two parties took three years, with the EU you're dealing with 27 parties, all ultimately looking after their own interests.

    Re: Brexit reality

    Canada recently completed a trade deal with the EU, it took 7 years to sort out and was nearly scuppered by the Wallons (the untidy part of Belgium). It's not that simple.
