All the countries in the EU pay money to the EU. That money is then spent on whatever the EU wants to spend it on.

A lot of money goes to farming subsidies. France has a lot of farmers, and so they are given a lot of money, a lot more than Britain is (cos Britain has less farmers i spose).

Britain thought this was unfair, so negociated to get a rebate, because otherwise much less money is paid back to them by the EU than France.

Basically the French are cunts. Selfish cunts who allow 3rd world farmers to starve. They kill people daily so they can drive around their 4 wheel drives. But hey, they're French.

The problem isnt protectionism or subsidies, nor do I mind them that much. Since those things actually help lower incomes in Europe (food sometimes at a ridiculous low price), but it's still ofcourse pretty inefficient at helping them.
The problem is the dumping in 3rd world countries (has not much to do with the eu since other countries do the same crap). Such a bad policy, kind of like how your "department for international development" pays the Adam Smith Institute to "reform the public sector" (privatizing water etc.) in some developing countries.

the fact is some people are really lame and can only abuse people. Its like impossible for them to actually help someone who asks for it. They jus come to the assumption ur stupid because you asked a question that they know.

I hope at least some of us were helpful!

I think they British and French should all get together and have smelly blue toothed babies called the Brench and they will sell them to people and fight them in the black market.
