    The "politicians" (and I use the term lightly|!) are becoming more and more pathetic in Brussels, they want to tax farmers because the fatulence caused by cows is adding to climate change.... what next tax humans who "trump" as well, dear me!! wake up Brussels.... you talk of load of old wind as well!!

    We actually pay these idoits through our taxes......far too much!!

    Get lost Brussels...... getting off soapbox or I could end up banned....ohhhh grrrrrr grrrrrrrr ........................I can see the guillotine coming out ............ power to the people!

    Here's a question for the government of whichever country next is trying to tax "gas"..... if a cow trumps more than once a day...does it have to pay more tax??????? the more you trump the more tax you pay cause your a high "earner" you get taxed on the mount of wind you produce mahhhh wahhhhhh.... will they ask for "wind turbines" next so the cattle can produce electricity as well......oh boy!

    My wife wants to tax my flatulance. She says they degrade the air quality in our house.
