Jeremy Clarkson predicts people will turn to ‘cannibalism’ due to food shortages

Jeremy Clarkson has issued a grave warning in light of the recent cost of living crisis, saying "people will eat their neighbours".

The former Top Gear host was discussing the rising price of fertiliser and other costs that farmers are set to incur, when he predicted that farmers will start to reduce the amount of crops they are producing.

While on the topic, he said: "Some have already decided to fallow their fields next year and grow nothing at all."

The presenter has recently started documenting his life working on a farm for his Amazon Prime show, Clarkson’s Farm.

He bought the farm in 2008 but in 2019, decided to have a go at running it himself.

While on the topic of farming, he believes that the knock on effect of less produce will lead to food scarcity and rising prices for shoppers.

He described it as the world hurtling towards "hunger, misery and death" and as a result, people will turn on each other.

He said: "People can live without heat, clothing or even sex but they cannot live without food. Hunger makes people eat their neighbours."

It comes after Jeremy recently vented his frustration about being refused planning permission to improve his farm.

While making an appearance on Talk TV's The News Desk, he discussed the problems he had encountered when trying to add a car park and a farm track to his land.

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, but farmers up and down the country are saying the same thing."
