According to the Finnish news “The Finnish farmers’ union (MTK) welcomed the European Union’s new budget deal, but expressed a hope that Finnish politicians will now lobby for the retention of special subsidies paid to farmers in southern Finland.”
So the MTK thinks that if the EU reduces special subsidies paid to the south it won’t soon reduce subsidies to the north? Does MTK think that the farmers in the south take those special subsidies because there is some kind of conspiracy and not need? And if we start reducing special subsidies why not to start from the Finnish fishermen? Or they belong in a different category, they have good reason for taken them or who gives a damn about the fishermen, they are not farmers? Not to mention who gives a damn for fellow farmers who go through the same pains!
Announcements like this show how petty some can be, how full of prejudice and stereotypes and how they can shame any kind of union!
