Jeremy went on to complain about the war in Ukraine which has fuelled the rising costs for farmers in the UK.
He concluded in The Times: “And now comes this terrible and stupid war, which is going to cause bread, pasta and vegetable oil to become more expensive than gold, frankincense and myrrh.
“And it’s no good saying, ‘Oh, we will just get our food from abroad,’ because farmers over there are in the same boat.”
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused of a lack of understanding of the serious cost of production issues facing British farmers, who have been hit with exorbitant fuel and fertiliser costs.
Mr Johnson faced questions from senior MPs at the Commons liaison committee on March 30 on “Partygate” police fines, the cost of living, the Ukraine war and the impact it was having on farmers and others.
