Reader feedback: Britain trying to back out

RE: Barroso joins V4 criticism of Blair, Flash News, December 1, 2005

First Britain, then the Visegrad Four countries, and the rest of "Old Europe" following.

Britain signed up to retaining the Common Agricultural Policy as it was until 2013, and is now trying to back out of that agreement.
