Government poised to scrap ELMS theguardian.com/environment/… There's much more to this story. Mark Spencer, who was Johnson's chief whip, but supported Sunak in the leadership contest, was demoted to the post of Farming Minister at Defra on the 8th September. Shortish thread 1/12

Spencer is a farmer and also chaired the national federation of Young Farmers Clubs. It's the equivalent of being President of the Young Conservatives. It's a key role for anyone ambitious about becoming a key farming industry person. We know he's close to the NFU. 2/12

Because he was publicly praised by former Chancellor Sunak for lobbying hard on behalf of the NFU, to successfully protect the £1Bn/year worth of Red Diesel subsidy, most of which goes to big farmers - the NFU membership. Here's a thread I wrote about it in March 2021. 3/12

I was struck by one of Johnson's throwaway remarks to the '22 cttee last night - no not the one about greed. He joked about the vaccine success as “driven by big pharma - and I don’t just mean the Chief Whip”. This is a reference to Mark Spencer, who is a farmer. Short thread 1/6

Since Brexit the NFU has been fighting tooth & nail, against the post-Brexit agricultural revolution - at the centre of which is the mad idea that society only pays farmers for the public goods they provide society. Public Goods like clean water, carbon storage, or wildlife. 4/12

For the past 20 years, we (taxpayers) have been paying farmers just to own land, whether food is produced or not; whether it's full of wildlife or a wildlife desert. So the more land owned, the bigger the subsidy cheque. Economies of scale mean larger farms cost less to run 5/12

But bizarrely, very small farms are excluded from any support. You can work out who made up that rule. Anyway, NFU has been set against public money for public goods (PMPG), and the prospect of losing their £200/ha/yr pay out. The NFU does have some cause to complain though 6/12

The idea is society pays for public goods & the market pays farmers to produce food (a private good). Nice idea, but what really happens in the UK is that most of the value from food products ends up in Supermarket profits or further down the food industry supply chain. 7/12

Equally, the scheme that Defra has developed (ELMS) is a pig's ear & will deliver little in the way of real change to benefit the environment. Meanwhile £££ continues to be handed to farmers for making small changes to their farming. But it's a step in the right direction. 8/12

It would appear though that under George Eustice Defra continued to dilute some of the more radical ideas which had bloomed under Maoist of the Right, Michael Gove. ELMS was always going to be a stepping stone to a better scheme. Eustice has gone and NFU Man Spencer steps in 9/12

on the day the Queen died. All of Truss' plans for the big reveal of her new agenda were put on hold, until yesterday, when we witnessed the single biggest attack on environmental policy since: well when? But there's on more thing to note - a new cakeism, if you will. 10/12

Subsidies of any kind are supposedly anathema to the Tufton St brigade, where the Market is King. Yet if the rumours are true, Defra will return to paying area based subsidies: mostly to wealthy landowners who don't need them. But what about the market? It's realpolitik 11/12

Truss knows she depends on backbench Tory support to see her radical agenda through. The Commons & Lords are stuffed with Tory farmers. They'll keep quiet in return for getting their farm payments back. And the libertarians? They don't care, if their other plans go ahead. ENDS
