Farmers across the country are being asked to explain why they’ve been given a £20m refund for farm subsidies that have been paid into their accounts for years.
The payments were due to run out in the summer of 2019, and the government was due to stop them by that date.
But the payments have been extended to the end of September 2019.
The payments have already been delayed because the government has been unable to keep up with a flood of new applications.
What the government can’t afford to do is continue to hand over subsidies to farmers who don’t need them.
This is a situation where you have to be absolutely clear to people who are being misled and you can’t just say ‘this is going to be paid by the end on the 20th of September, so you can just keep it and it’s going to come through on the 21st of September’.
That’s not the way to do it.
What you have got to do, and what you need to do now is to ask why the payments are being given.
What are they for?
Why are they being paid now?
What you should be asking is, ‘Is there a good reason for this?
Why have they been given the money now?’
The first thing you need is to have an accounting of why they’re being given the subsidy money.
So if it’s because they’re a farmer, then you need a proper accounting.
But there’s nothing wrong with just giving the money to a farmer who isn’t doing anything wrong.
And if you think about it, if they’ve already paid the money in full, then why are you getting it paid in full?
But if you ask, ‘What do you expect the farm will do with this money?’ then you’ll get a very different response.
The Government is making a lot of money off of this, and that’s why they don’t want to look at it in a very straightforward way.
You need to know that you’ve got the money, and then what you should do is ask: ‘Why is the Government doing this?’
And if you’ve already got the answer to that, then what the Government is doing is not doing it.
If you want to get the answer right, then look at what’s been done to farm income tax, what’s happened to the farm tax credits.
If you want the answers to the questions that are going to arise, then read the bill that the Government has sent to the House of Commons.
You’ll find that there’s a lot that’s wrong with the bill, but there’s also a lot to be gained from looking at it.
So the Government should start to look carefully at what they’re doing and why they have given subsidies to people that are actually not doing anything to improve the quality of their farm.
