After Jeremy had recently expressed his frustration over being denied planning permission for his farm’s improvements, Jeremy decided to make this move.
He spoke on Talk TV’s The News Desk about the difficulties he faced when adding a car park to his land and a track for farming.
He said: “Maybe I should buy an apron and join the Masons. I don’t know what you have to do, but I simply can’t get planning permission for anything, which is infuriating.
“But it’s not just me as it turns out. “I thought it was me, but farmers across the country were saying the exact same thing.”
