BBC fails to point out Leave MPs wish farmers to receive all current subsidies on exit, paid by UK governments

John Redwood’s latest blog discusses the BBC’s failure to observe the wish of pro-Brexit MPs to maintain subsidiaries in the event of Brexit.

The Radio 4 Farming Today programme this morning spent time debating life after subsidies have been abolished in the context of exit from the EU. Whilst they said the UK could pay subsidies itself on exit, the rest of the piece left farmers with the clear impression the base case was no subsidy. This is simply false. I know of no likely post exit UK government that would remove all farming subsidies. The Leave campaign says we should just pay what is currently paid.
