What a waste of money

Subsidies are evil at the best of times, but worse when one of the richest families in the world avails themselves of corporate welfare in the form of subsidies:

The Queen has received £7million in farming subsidies funded by taxpayers over the past ten years, it emerged yesterday.

And the Duke of Westminster – one of Britain’s richest men – has been given around £6million.

They are among a roll call of millionaire land owners who have accepted bonanza payouts from Brussels.

The subsidies, made under the controversial Common Agricultural Policy, are meant to ensure farmers a reasonable standard of living while giving consumers quality food at fair prices.

Bludgers.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
