French attitudes to CAP reform

As highlighted by Edward at A Fistful of Euros, French reaction to the recent EU budget débâcle has been much more nuanced than the hysteria in the British press. Reform of the CAP is seen as necessary in France, especially given that such a high percentage of subsidies goes to 5% of recipients - which rather undermines the argument that the purpose of the arrangement is to maintain a living countryside which is something more than a theme park.
