He described the deal as “a huge missed opportunity to correct the mistakes of 2003” and make CAP more common, and farming more productive, globally competitive and more market-oriented.

He criticised the introduction of “populist” elements such as greening and capping, and said it was “a profoundly wrong direction”.
