MEPs have demanded more money for Europe's banana growers who aren't even in Europe. They want extra cash to help banana growers in those well-known "European" regions of France's La Réunion (Indian Ocean), Guadeloupe and Martinique (Caribbean) and Guyane (borders Brazil), plus Portugal's Azores (off north America).
