Bloody smug patronising intensively farming nob ! Anyone else ? Or is it an irrational thing ?

AnyFucker Sun 11-Jan-15 19:30:47

Me too

can't stand him

AnyFucker Sun 11-Jan-15 19:31:54

"Here are my sheep, on my farm...."

fuck off

maudpringles Sun 11-Jan-15 19:37:57

Well I think he is wonderful.

Sizzlesthedog Sun 11-Jan-15 19:39:21

Very patronising, and he bellows at the camera

DannyShouldHaveChosenRizzo Sun 11-Jan-15 19:40:53

He is the same in real life.

Sparklingbrook Sun 11-Jan-15 19:56:51

He never does any bloody farming. angry

The most plonking delivery ever. Supports field sports as well.

Dh was a bit jealous of his new machine.i only watch for weather for the week ahead.

Methe Sun 11-Jan-15 19:59:43

I really like him, and his dad too.

So there!

hmm

froggers1 Sun 11-Jan-15 20:00:15

Can't stand him..it's so irrational because he seems nice but he is so bloody smug and up his own bum...

Purplecircle Sun 11-Jan-15 20:10:23

He does fk all on his farm apparently. The manager does it all as he's off filming all the time. Bit hypocritical I think!

Methe Sun 11-Jan-15 20:11:17

Why else would he have a manager?

maudpringles Sun 11-Jan-15 20:14:09

But if he did all the work himself, he wouldnt need a manager?
I appreciate all the work his family has done for rare breeds in this country.
He never seems smug to me...just very passionate and interested in farming and his animals.

iklboo Sun 11-Jan-15 20:16:10

Is he the one who always mentions one of his animals is injured, ill, dying or dead? Every single week?

Sparklingbrook Sun 11-Jan-15 20:29:28

YY he was on about some loss of cow earlier tonight ikl.

mejon Sun 11-Jan-15 21:40:03

Ha, ha. DH can't stand him either mainly because he never appears to do any 'farming' himself. He's clearly not alone grin.

usualsuspect333 Sun 11-Jan-15 21:42:17

We always say 'Which of Adams animals is gonna peg it this week'

iklboo Sun 11-Jan-15 21:47:27

He's like that vet off The Fast Show!

recall Sun 11-Jan-15 21:51:56

Yes anyfucker YES !!!!!!!!! So it isn't just me.

"Here are my sheep on my big farm, but you viewers wouldn't understand because I'm sure you all live in blocks of flats, that's why I have to shout in simplified language - you are all second rate city dwellers and I am the fat country twat who has all the intensively farmed cream - how you must all aspire eh ?"

There are others....Ruth Goodman....angry...irrational also! can't help it

recall Sun 11-Jan-15 21:55:47

...and by the way ADAM , silage is not pickled, it's fermented - so there. He probably thinks the city dwelling peasants don't understand fermented, so had to choose an easy word

MissMuffetisin Sun 11-Jan-15 22:00:40

And where does he get the money from to keep all these rare breeds and buy brand new expensive machinery ? Thought he was a tenant farmer - the one I've met seem to work all the hours god sends for very little financial reward !

Cretaceous Sun 11-Jan-15 23:06:44

According to Wikipedia, he got the job when Countryfile ran a presenter search, so he must have some talent...

Oh, actually... "Henson's grandfather Leslie Henson, was a music hall and musical comedy comedian and actor. His farmer father Joe Henson MBE, presented a countryside TV programme with Angela Rippon and Phil Drabble; while his actor uncle Nicky Henson has appeared in films and TV programmes including Fawlty Towers and Inspector Morse."

I don't mind the well connected Mr Henson, actually. smile

recall Sun 11-Jan-15 23:53:42

He is popular, and I really ought to like him, he's done some good work in preserving rare breeds....I just can't - irrational.

Always thought he was very patronising. Really don't like him or his delivery.
