    The farmers in the core EU countries have been cosseted and bribed for decades.

    Now Putin has stuffed them due to Russia being embargoed they don't like what they are facing.

    So scream and shout, block motorways, set fire to building and vehicles and they give you 500M of useless Euros!

    Jailing the leaders, after a suitable twatting, and they would all calm down a bit.

    No need to throw bad money after other bad money and expect the UK to pick the tab up.
