Crisis Distillation: another EU initiative

Crisis Distillation: you would be forgiven for thinking this phrase must be a description of the recent goings on in the Cabinet, however, it is not.

In fact, Crisis Distillation is yet another barmy EU scheme designed to prop up an increasingly uncompetitive and stagnant wine market. The EU has agreed to spend 131 million euros paying France and Italy to distil 560 million litres of wine into fuel or disinfectant, in order to keep EU wine prices "competitive".

Doesn't it make you proud to know how they spend your hard-earned tax pounds?
