Apology from Rural Payments Agency

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The former boss of the Rural Payments Agency has apologised for the agency’s shambolic administration of the payment of farming subsidies.

Thanks to the RPA’s inability do their job, countless farmers were forced to sell their farms or go bankrupt.  The whole cock-up cost English farmers an estimated £21m but only affected Welsh and Scottish farmers who also farmed in England as the administration of farming subsidies is handled by agencies of their devolved governments under a different scheme to England.

Unfortunately, apologies don’t pay the bills and this apology is too little too late.
