    Default Cummings took €235k in EU subsidies

    OK article is 9 moths old, but just to remind the brexidiots of what their big leaders really are: Effing wallet filling hypocrites

    "Subsidy" or "Unelected bureaucrat salary"?

    Oi, just because someone's a brexiter, doesn't mean there's anything wrong with them being a blatant hypocrite at the same time.

    There's one here, who voted to leave, who's already got himself an EU passport. He even yearns to leave the UK and live in the EU in the future. His missus thinks he's an embarassment but that's just her opinion.

    The only idiots are those that expect businesses and people to pass up free money offered to them on a platter.

    No the only idiots are those who get handed free money on a platter and then vote against it

    Why should he not get what other farmers get when we are still in the EU and still paying a lot more into it than we get back?

    But if a Romanian farmer gets a subsidy suddenly they are profiteers living off the UK taxpayers money

    While we are/were in the EU I think it is entirely right that all Brits should claim what they are entitled to. Not to do so would increase our net payments even more. Our economy benefits from money received and spent in the UK.

    If subsidies and grants are legitimately available why on earth wouldn't you take them? Not to mention as co-owner he probably doesn't have the final say on it anyway.

    And this has been going on for a decade but only now does anyone want to write about it, just when DC happens to be in the news?
