Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Eligibility rules have changed substantially this decade. The CAP is presently undergoing a reform process, better known as the Simplification Agenda.

We can always discuss if the CAP is reaching the goals it is supposed ot, or if there are alternative and more efficient ways of achieving them. However, I do not see food security, environmental protection or rural development and cohesion as particularly dividing issues.

But at the moment it's hardly contributing to these goals, let alone reaching them.

Some of it may indeed be the responsibility of the governments - and Monbiot does slam the Tory record. That does not change that those goals are not close to being met, and in may ways we are actually moving away from them.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
