A thread on who might replace Agriculture Minister Angela Leadsom”
“He is my MP, he is a complete waste of space, has been no help to farmers that have gone to him for help over their BPS problems, just says he cant help, yet he is chair of the EFRA committee… so work that out!!
He only wants to know when it means he might get his pic in the local paper.
I know many people that are non farmers who have gone to him for help on various issues and he has just fobbed them off as well.
Also he is hell bent on direct subs going to be replaced by more complicated stewardship schemes that are both unworkable at farm level and impossible for the RPA to administer, he will be an utter disaster for the industry if he gets the job!”
