Irish Farming Saved after WTO talks collapse in Geneva

Mr Sarkozy EU President is a  hero to the farmers of Ireland today ,Villain to  the NO Voters (Lisbon Treaty) in this country recently,has just been thanked by Padraig Walshe of the IFA (Irish Farmers Association)for saving the Irish economy from losing 4billion .The collapse today of the World Trade Organisation Talks was backed by nine other EU Countries.I saw a Prime Time programme on RTE Last week where it was debated on the Pro’s and Con’s of these talks.It would have wiped out farming in this country forever if the deal had gone through.For those city dwellers who think that farmers are boggers,muck savages etc…we all depend on Agriculture to supply us with the basic necessities in this country .Cheap beef imports from the likes of Brazil with no traceability etc would be detrimental to this economy and would mean more unemployment  and good agricultural land lying idle.
