Jeremy Clarkson, the Clarkson’s Farm presenter who has been fighting away complaints left and right since his farm Diddly Squat was started, has now retaliated to a complaint about traffic near his farm.
Large amounts of traffic was seen on New Year’s Eve before Diddly Squat Farm Shop was closed for two months. But a resident of the area, who asked to not be named, told reporters on the scene that Jeremy and his business were causing “complete chaos”:
“It is complete chaos – I was 20 minutes late for a doctor’s appointment due to queues.
“They have parking management on the entrance of Clarkson’s farm who are instructing cars to park on the road.
“The cars parked to go on for more than a mile.
“It is ridiculous.
“It took us half an hour to get up the road to get to our home,” she said, according to the Oxford Mail.
According to the local, she was 20 minutes late to a doctor’s appointment thanks to the traffic on the 31st of December. While 20 minutes isn’t that long, it must be annoying for residents who have to now factor in extra time to what would be short journeys.
But, according to The Grand Tour presenter, she could have taken another road to get around this traffic. In a tweet, he responded to the complaint:
“There are three roads from Chadlington to the A361. She could have used one of the other two instead of moaning,” he said.
Diddly Squat Farm Shop is closing temporarily after the council complained about the material used to construct its roof. Currently, it’s made from metal, but will soon be swapped out for a slate roof, which the council has asked for. The shop will hopefully reopen for March.
