I hope the Dutchies give the Frenchies some ideas.

What with the sell out of European farmers and the jailing of Catalan politicians....Gotta love the EU project.

Boris get us out FFS!

I think they have done very very well from their protected market

Nope, just checked BBC Europe page.

Not a mention so even the story about Germany celebrating having the world's oldest sloth ranks higher in their rulebook of what to report and what not to report.

Here you go then:

Surprisingly the So-Called BBC is not very up about European matters - everyday is the worst rush hour in The Netherlands, or at least in the triangle.

They are all on PCH just like fancy German cars, nothing to do with wealth (just go round your local scuzzy estate).

Yeah. I remember the time having a decent motor said something about your wealth. Now, for most it just screams that they are stupid enough to borrow shedloads to impress others. 

My car was bought for cold hard cash btw. I’ll drive it into the ground though.

^From that article

Jim4 hours ago
With the advent of plant-based "meat-alternatives", will the liberals now be calling for the extinction of cattle and their climate altering flatulence? What about the effects of the bean protein in the new "meat"? And if there are no cattle breathing and farting, where will the carbon dioxide the plants need to breathe come from? What about all the water the plants will need, and the fossil-fueled powered tractors needed? Gee, every time the liberals "fix" something, a new problem emerges. At least "government regulation" and "activist politicians" should remain in demand and avoid extinction.

I think the world is just about to go very right wing.

Yeah but they all look brand spanking new. 

Where are farmers getting the money (xD....loans) to buy expensive tractors?

In rural Dumfries & Galloway the farmers I know LOVE the EU and lots vote for the SNP party!

Would you want a tractor that takes 10 hours to do a job, or 4? Technology progresses everywhere.

 

I’m not sure I want a tractor at all. How fast do they go?

Are they like student loans and don't necessarily have to be paid back.  Basically a subsidy to tractor producers as well as farmers.

All we need is for the So-Called BBC to start reporting on it and the move to the totalitarian state is complete. xD

Me too.  Cheapest car I have ever owned, and if it lasts three years will have done its duty.
