Non-fake news about the EEC and EU

  • Food mountains, wine lakes etc were not fake news.
  • VAT (you could not think of a worse tax) was not fake news.
  • The sudden disappearance of cheap food from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Argentina and Eastern Europe in 1973 was not fake news.
  • The grubbing up of hedgerows in the late 1970s to make the most of CAP was not fake news.
  • Farmers being paid to leave fields full of weeds under the 2nd version of CAP was not fake news.
  • The grants to country landowners under the 3rd and current incarnation of CAP are not fake news
  • The Single Market tariff barrier is not fake news. 
Now for non-fake concealed-news: as the Single Market rules kick in after Brexit, there will be as many losers in the E27 as in the UK.
