      Here's an example of why many Slovaks don't like being part of the EU.

      SWEETER NEWS FOR SLOVAKIA?
      Decreasing the area covered by vineyards should remain at growers'
      discretion, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural
      Development Mariann Fischer-Boel said in Skalica (Trnava region) on
      Thursday. The EC is planning to reduce the amount of land devoted to
      vineyards because it believes that much of the surplus wine is being
      grown solely for subsidies from Brussels. A corollary problem is that
      the surplus of wine in Europe drives overall prices down.

      EU Commissioner for Agriculture Mariann Fischer Boel stated at a press
      conference in Skalica, that Slovakia will be allowed to keep 25
      percent of the sugar quota, which the EU allocated to the
      sugar-producer Eastern Group. The producer decided to close some of
      its sugar mills in central Europe and leave Slovakia. Its annual quota
      in Slovakia was 70,100 tons of sugar. Agriculture Minister Miroslav
      Jurena is, however, concerned that no one would be interested to take
      over that part of the quota.
