Re: Monbiot talks sense on clusters

Oops, what a difference a stray 'r' can make to the meaning of a sentence. But blow me down Monbiot is on a bit of a winning streak at the moment. His latest piece is taking a pop at the injustices of the beloved Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and in particular the way in which it further enriches the already rich.

Whilst it would be easy to dismiss this as the rantings of a deranged class warrior, having seen the unseemly rush to of big landowners to jump on the Feed In Tariff for Solar energy, I think there is more than a grain of truth in what he is saying. There is certainly no denying the corrupting influence of the EU on life in this country.
