Team at the Three Counties Show this weekend

Does the EU get your goat?
The team and myself will be at the Royal Three Counties show which is being held at the Malvern showground this weekend.
More information below:

Nikki Sinclaire MEP will once again pitch her mobile surgery at this weekend’s Three Counties Show, and will be on hand to discuss farmers concerns about EU reforms that look set to harm their industry.
It will be the We Demand a Referendum NOW MEPs second year at the show in Malvern.
Nikki will also be engaging farmers about the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) which is being 'reviewed' for reform this year. 48% of the EU budget is spent on agriculture with the French, Germans and Spanish the main beneficiaries. Britain joined the EU after CAP was formed and struggled for its fair share with the French in particular not willing to give up their national interest.
Nikki said "Blair freely gave away half of the 'Thatcher Rebate' to obtain talks about reform, now we must push the French to act equitably"
Nikki Sinclaire said, ’Reform of the CAP is firmly back on the political agenda in 2013 as changes are discussed this year. I want as many British farmers to be involved in the consultation process as possible as ultimately any changes could severely impact their ability to do their jobs’’ 
Nikki Sinclaire said of the event, “I will always speak up in Brussels in support of British farmers. Using official channels I will continue to urge the European Commission to have greater consultation with British farmers over future proposals.

Farming and agriculture are major employers in my constituency, and knowing how I can make things easier for the sector in terms of EU legislation, is essential work.

The Three Counties show is a real highlight in the calender for me and my team. With tens of thousands of people expected to attend this show over the weekend, I’m very excited to be at the event and can’t wait to speak to as many people as possible”.
As well as being on hand to discuss agriculture, Nikki and her team will also be on hand to discuss the ongoing campaign for a referendum and Ms. Sinclaire’s new political party, the We Demand a Referendum NOW party. Attendees to the show will have the opportunity to pledge their support for an In or Out EU referendum.
