The Shropshire Star covers the comments, which outline Paul Madeley’s belief that there is a lack of understanding of the rural communities and farming at top level politics in the UK.
Speaking ahead of last week’s election, Madeley said: ‘The problem recently has been that it’s all been about chasing votes for parties, and the rural and farming communities are a pretty small voice really. But actually the rural economy is an integral part of what any government might want to achieve in the future, and I think politicians need to understand that across the board.’
He said planning was a good example of how red tape was ‘stifling the potential of land in rural areas’ around the country.
