I was at first not going to write anything about the events leading up to and the conclusion of Mr Donald Trump’s impeachment, mostly because I was so dumbfounded by it all I was almost lost for words, however I feel it was such a bizarre situation that one must comment.

Where to start, Lord knows; Mr Trump looses the election by some 8 million votes but will not accept that he has lost even though no court in the land has found evidence of any wrong doing to back up his claim that the election was stolen.

It really isn’t worth my while spending too long on this as it’s such a farcical situation but briefly, after he looses the election he is seen on television inciting a riot with a view to stop the official declaration of the win for Joe Biden which ended with the storming of the Capitol Building in Washington resulting in the deaths of five people.

Whilst still President he is Impeached but due to the Republicans delaying when he comes to trial he is no longer President which gives them the excuse to find him not guilty, which leaves me wondering had he actually taken a gun and killed five people himself while being President, would they still have found him not guilty.

It seems there was evidence that Mr Trump knew of the events going on at the Capitol Building after his speech which incited the riot and in fact was contacted by many Congressmen asking him to stop the riot but he chose not to act, leaving all those in the building open to the possibility that they too may have joined the list of those killed on the day.

To sum up, Mr Trump incites a riot with the purpose of stopping the election result being officially declared, the mob storm the Capitol Building during which five people die and knowing that the mob had declared their intention to kill members of the Congress he chose to do nothing to stop them and then knowing all these facts all but seven members of the Republican Party vote not guilty, resulting in Mr Trump not being impeached.

The last person who tried something like this in Great Britain was Guy Fawkes who in 1606 attempted to blow up the British Parliament but luckily enough he and three others failed and were arrested and tried for high treason which resulted in them all being sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered.

I will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to whether you can draw any similarities between Mr Trump’s attempt at high treason and that of Guy Fawkes.

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 due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. 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 and 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 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. I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase.

    Anyone with a functioning brain knows he was guilty. Even his supporters have declared — in their own trials — that they were acting on his behalf. Unfortunately, partisan politics won out over upholding the Constitution. Hopefully, the pending lawsuits in NY and Georgia will keep him occupied for a while. Yet another national embarrassment.

    • Agreed, it’s quite extraordinary. It’s such a shame from the country that used to claim to be the leading democracy of the world to have come to this nonsense, one has to hope he will get his comeuppance from a private prosecution from the family of one of the dead.

    That was a very powerful summation, from someone in Canada, who is equally dumbfounded by the events.

    Perhaps the result would have been different if it had been a secret ballet.

    OOps, predictive text! Obviously not ballet – ballot!

    • Yes, I thought that. It seems ridiculous that the Republicans voted as they did to hang on to their jobs and perhaps because they are scared of what their voters might do. It would never surprise me if some of these Senators are shot and killed, especially as so many people seem to have access to a military assault rifles. I’m so glad I don’t live there!
