Remarkable anecdote from Clarkson’s farm hand Kaleb Cooper; David Cameron recognised me but I didn’t recognise him.

The more I learn about Kaleb Cooper the more I warm to him. Unless you have Amazon Prime you will never have heard of him.
You see he’s the farm hand on Jeremy Clarkson’s 1,000 acres in Chipping Norton, a stunning spot in the Cotswolds.
And the 23-year-old has become the star of TV’s Clarkson’s Farm as he tells the petrolhead what to do and how to do it. It’s compelling television.
The difference between Kaleb and Clarkson is that he knows what he’s doing. There’s a good reason for it.

Kaleb did a three-year course at Moreton Morrell agricultural college in Warwickshire whereas Clarkson only took up farming his land- previously he had it tenanted- about half an hour ago.
Kaleb wasn’t in awe of Clarkson when he first met his boss because he didn’t really know who he was. He doesn’t watch TV or follow the news and he has only ever been to London once (and didn’t like it).
Kaleb says in The Sun; “The way I think about it, I know about farming and he’s learning therefore I’m the boss.
“When he says, ‘We’re going to do this.’ I’m like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that because that won’t work.
“He doesn’t listen to me. I don’t get intimidated by him. I just treat him like a normal person. We have a laugh. But when he annoys me, he really annoys me. I get angry.”

Great attitude. He tells how recently he was in Chipping Norton (or Chippy to him) when he got out of the truck and the former PM David Cameron , I didn’t realise at the time, was next to me.
“He was like; ‘Oh, another local celebrity’ and I’m like ‘Yeah, yeah I’ve got to go.
“I walked straight past. I went, ’Hang on a minute that was David Cameron. I said to Jeremy I think I met David Cameron. Does he drive a pick-up? So they all laughed at that.”
Amazon are the edge of commissioning another series. I hope they do. This is a winner. The idiots at the BBC turned it down.
PS If you plan to buy either car or home insurance I wonder if you might look at my small price comparison site A Spokesman Said as we earn a little commission from each sale which helps und the research and editorial costs of running the site. It has the same offer as the big ones like Go Compare. Thank you.
