THIS story from the Sunday Telegraph is truly appalling. It relates how Brussels has closed down a successful UK cheese manufacturer for no apparent reason, and has been allowed to do so by an impotent British government. I hope that this will now be taken up by our MPs and MEPs even though it is too late for that particular company. It must not be allowed to happen again.
On the back of this, the EU is about to launch an investigation into the whole UK cheese industry, which is worth £5 billion a year. What's the betting that after they've finished it will be worth a fraction of that? The words Off, Out and Better become more appealing by the day. But not necessarily in that order.
