So, if we scrap subsidies (mostly now to corporations/ farmers/ food manufacturers/landowners... ) , they  are then  going to commit hare kire by  cutting their other source of income by not growing and selling wheat /milk /etc? I don't think so.
The proposition is to target and means test subsidies and save £billions,  and stop rearing big bustards and save jobs.

      If we scrap CAP subsidies  the majority of our food will be imported form the North America, Australia/NZ  and developing countries. 
The problem is not the subsidies (though tariffs would be better) —they are needed to make UK  farming viable in a competitive capitalist market.  The problem is the concentration of land in large farms.Simon

payments to rich bustards .
