GeneralCornwall fishermen make plea over lost lobster pots Pin

Fishermen in Cornwall are calling for help with the cost of replacing hundreds of crab and lobster pots missing or damaged in the storms[^]

Sounds reasonable you might think, the hard pressed fishermen want a bit of public money to buy new pots.

But hang on, the tax payer should pay so that rich people can still buy lobster at 30 pounds a kilo?

Just increase the price of the lobsters to 33 pounds a kilo! Why should the tax payer subsidise rich peoples luxurious eating habits!


Holy crap, we will be asked to subsidise truffle and champagne production next!
