EU attempts to eliminate 1,7 million farms.

Well, no it doesn't, but that is the claim made in an amendment to one of today's reports. The Green/Communist alliance have come up with a blinder,
by Diamanto Manolakou, Vincenzo Aita and Ilda Figueiredo, on behalf of the GUE/NGL Group
Joint motion for a resolution
by the PPE-DE, PSE, ALDE,UEN and Verts/ALE Group
Rising feed and food prices

Recital M a (new)
Ma. whereas the reform of the CAP decided in Maastricht was intended to lead to the elimination of 1 700 000 farms; whereas this reduction in the number of farms has resulted in a constant rise in food prices,
Now I am no fan of the CAP, but claiming that it is a deliberate policy of eliminating 1.7 million farms is a paranoid delusion of the first order
