Little understanding, your proving that, most Farmers I know do not have incredible greed, they scratch a living. Some of the big farming companies turn a profit and in doing so provide most of the fresh traditional veg that you'll be buying in the Supermarkets. Unless you prefer to buy organic.

For the record I don't favour hunting with hounds. However foxes do need controlling where the need arises and it does from time to time.

Indeed, acres of fields filled with Rape Seed as this is far more profitable to them than growing vegetables, forcing us to import and the farmers ruining the soil with continuous reseeding of the same plants. (Source, I live in Shropshire and see it everywhere, year on year!)

I live on Anglesy so a very rural place and the "definition of impossible" around here is 'a skint farmer' they all have brand tractors new every year, new Audi/ Mercades etc and a New 4 X 4 every year. Yes the chavs/ immigrants might know how to milk the system, but farmers are just as bad with claiming X subsidy to be paid to leave a field/s fallow then buy the new cars etc put the daughter through university and still claim to be skint while getting pissed as farts every Friday/ Saturday night.

Around my way, the rental they'll get paid for allowing the installation of a mast on commercial premises & farmland ranges from around £5k to £10k per year, depending on location, how desperate they are to improve their signal in the area & how long the lease is for ( 10 years is most common )
So all in all, a nice little earner.

Probably the same in other areas, but here in Wales there's also a growing number of farmers installing large solar arrays on their land....the latest monstrosity they're trying to get approval for is this : http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/enormous-solar-farm-big-170-12990375
345 acres !! :shock: ( or about the same area as 170 football pitches would take up )

So, if farming is so lucrative and rich an occupation, why are so many people getting out of the industry? Why is depression and anxiety so prevalent among farmers? Why are suicide rates so high among farmers?

I think a lot of people here are confusing farmers with landowners. A lot of farmers are tenants for a start, so there is often a hell of a difference, and some of the comments here are downright insulting to a group of people who are among the hardest working out there, with incredibly long hours, more bureaucracy and accountability for their actions than many of us will ever know in our daily lives and the certainty of losing everything -and I mean everything- if it goes belly up.

This sort of stuff is a bit off. What does it matter where they buy their trousers?

I also don't like the use of the word "learners" instead of "pupils".

If you think that's bad.....we can go one better in Wales : http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/hundreds-children-put-detention-after-13582587
Hundreds of children were given detention for not having the correct uniform at an Aberystwyth school, say parents.

The parents of pupils at Ysgol Penglais have reacted in anger after they say 450 children were given detention during break time.

The school said they will be writing to parents to clarify their school uniform policy after “some confusion”.

All down to the failure of the school to make it clear what the uniform regulations were....compounded by the fact that they still haven't done so.

Could get them all to wear Gender Neutral uniforms.

A school which is making all new joiners wear trousers is bowing to "gender neutral nonsense", former pupil Piers Morgan says.

Priory School in Lewes said it made the change after concerns were raised over the length of skirts worn by pupils.

The East Sussex school also said the new uniform rules were catering for a handful of transgender pupils.

Never heard the word 'learners' used. Actually the word 'pupil' seems to be used rarely nowadays. They all seem to to be 'students' now, even those at primary school.

Believe me, they're called all sorts of things in the staffroom. :wink:

To be fair, most of us at my school go for the outlandish and controversial 'children' when talking about, you know, children... :facepalm:
