Commission consultation: EU agriculture post 2013

Do you know how the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the EU should look after 2013?

If yes, just follow the invitation* of the European Commission, join the debate, and read what others have answered on the questions posed by the Commission.

If you need some more facts on how the billions of euros (almost 50% of the EU budget) for the CAP are wasted invested, why not reading Jack Thurston's "Does the CAP fit?" on or why not going to to search how CAP money is spent in your country (see sidebar) or your city (search field)?**

But apart from that:

Does anybody believe in the possibility that the CAP is ever reformable? I suppose that not even Commissioner Cioloş is... Or are you, Sir?
