Love, money, subsidies
"Can Kamal Nath persuade Prince Albert to switch from French Brie to Mauritanian camel cheese?" asks Saubhik Chakrabarti in an excellent piece in the Indian Express. The relevance of the question comes though after he explains how farm subsidies in Europe, especially France, have little to do with farmers being electorally important. Instead, it has all to do with "love and money." I won't excerpt from the piece, just rush over and read the full thing.
