ABSTRACT
The author criticizes the bureaucracy in British government agencies that handle farming. He says he was pleased to see that the agencies are coming under scrutiny not only for their unaccountability, but also the cost, duplication and red tape they create. He also says that he did not appreciate the BPC. Not only is the BPC now defunct as it becomes amalgamated to form the new joint levy board, but it is also funded by the industry and not the taxpayer.
