It’s been no secret that Jeremy Clarkson is struggling as his farming business is expanding. Now, he’s told his Twitter followers that he’s sent a video to the government in a bid to address these issues.
Over the last couple of years, the Clarkson’s Farm presenter has tried to expand his farm by building on his land to not only improve his customers’ experience, but to also fix issues that were brought up by a number of his Chadlington neighbours. The main issue to those who lived near Diddly Squat Farm was the increased footfall and traffic. And while you’d expect an increased footfall around a village to only be a good thing thanks to more public spending and interest, Chadlington locals haven’t taken kindly to this.Calling Jeremy’s shop an “eyesore”, they’ve complained of cars also parking on the sides of roads, so in order to combat this, Jeremy applied for planning permission to build a 60-space car park. This, as expected, was rejected by the local council, with a local sending the following letter:
“If the Farm Shop was loyal to selling local farm produce, the small car park is appropriate. “Alas, the shop is already selling souvenirs, that attract large number of buyers from all corners of the UK. Now, after almost all of Jeremy’s attempts at building his business, or “diversifying” as the government has told farmers to do, he has sent a video message to “Number 10”.Some of his almost 8 million followers on Twitter were keen to respond, with the official Twitter account of the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson responding.
