Cameron government subsidising millionaire grouse shooters with taxpayers’ money
Need a reasonnot to vote Tory?
(not satire – it’s the Cameron government!)
Did you know that millionaire grouse shooting landowners – whose well-heeled clients can pay more than £3,000 each for a single day’s shooting – are now receiving millions of pounds annually in government subsidies?
And did you know that the Cameron government has decided that from January 2015, those same millionaire land owners will receive around £56 a hectare in taxpayers’ money for organising grouse shooting?
So apparently – according to Cameron and Osborne’s Tory logic – we can’t afford schools and hospitals but there’s plenty of money to subsidise their wealthy mates’ country activities.
Call me old-fashioned – but shouldn’t this be a scandal?
