FAKE NEWS OF THE DAY NO 6.

I’m a little confused today as to what the FAKE NEWS actually is but I will just present the facts as best I can and leave it up to you to decide who is telling the truth.

The Government have said they are doing their best to secure ventilators and testing kits and all the necessary paraphernalia that goes with them to save the lives of patients and staff alike and I must say I’m inclined to think they are telling the truth.

Surprisingly all I seem to see from the press of this country is criticism of the Governments actions suggesting there are plenty of these articles readily available and we should have them by now.

It seems to me that the only way we can tell who is telling the truth or who is writing FAKE NEWS is to offer a challenge to the British Press as they can easily afford to take up my suggestion.

To the British Press I say, if this equipment is as readily available as you make out YOU GO OUT AND BUY THE RUDDY STUFF AND PROVE IT!!

That is the end of the FAKE NEWS for today and with that I hand you back to the studio.

 

 

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

    Good One Joe.
    I am also exasperated with the press. The government is between a rock and a hard place.
    Just for once, I would like to hear someone from the press say Well Done and thank you.

    The hospital trust here in Leeds, in an effort to allay concerns, announced that the hospitals here had received everything they needed and were well prepared.
