Born in Barton, Cambridgeshire, Page presented One Manitoba and His Dog, a television show featuring sheepdog trials. He is also Chairman of the Countryside Restoration Trust, an author with numerous books on the countryside and country life in print and a regular columnist for the Daily Telegraph. His articles also appear in many other publications.
Page was elected to South Cambridgeshire District Council as an independent in 1972, holding his seat until he resigned in 2006.
He stood as the Conservative Party candidate in Bethnal Green and Bow at the 1979 general election, finishing in third place. In 2002, Page was arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred in a speech he gave at a fair in Gloucestershire, but was later released as police were of the opinion that no crime had been committed.
Page claimed that he was framed by Gloucestershire Police. In 2008 Gloucestershire Police made a four-figure payment to Page for his wrongful arrest, conceding and compensating him for his complaint.
Page resigned from UKIP after not being selected as a party candidate for the East of England constituency at the 2009 European Elections, Page claimed that the party"s MEPs were part of a "gravy train", and that leader Nigel Farage dominated the party excessively.
He joined the United Kingdom First Party, and was the lead candidate on their list in the East of England. In the 2010 general election he stood for a third time in South Cambridgeshire, as an independent. In 2016 Page again attracted controversy by making remarks (which he dismissed as a joke) about deceiving immigrants into taking contraceptive drugs.
