Gordon Brown fights on over farm subsidies

Glad to see that the Chancellor isn't as craven as Tony Blair over the issue of agricultural subsidies in the EU:
Brown pointedly declined to endorse the budget deal announced by Tony Blair yesterday. Instead he called for action on farm subsidies at the World Trade Organisation (WTO) talks in Hong Kong later this month.
Wouldn't it be nice if the French government would pay more than lip service to the reduction of poverty in the developing world?
