This has not been the easiest of times for farmers , as Jamie Blackett knows all too well. He has found himself in danger of losing the family estate in Dumfries & Galloway as his beef business struggles, with Brexit beginning to bite. He is also worried about the threat of extreme environmentalists and the possibility of the break-up of the Union, which is why he formed an unlikely political alliance with maverick politician George Galloway. Jamie comes to Wigtown to tell us more.
