Helen Harris: Farmers need fairer prices, not bland and vague political aspirations
When I chat to other farmers, especially tillage farmers, about the Green Party there is usually a deep sigh before they roll their eyes to heaven. The Greens may not be the most popular with us farmers, but I do agree we need to make changes for the benefit of the planet and future generations. So, when I started to read some of the policy proposals for the next government, I thought it would be 40 shades of green, but what I read was more like 50 shades of grey. The colour, not the book. That's how bland and boring I found the Programme for Government.
