I see there is a bit of a hoo-ha concerning Mr Trumps Tax Returns as it seems he will have to declare them to all and sundry and by all accounts it is about time.

There will obviously be much more to add to this story as and when the full story is revealed but one wonders if it will expose Mr Trump as a completely incompetent business man who has not made a profit for some years, or a devious criminal who has been defrauding The Revenue for many a year or a combination of the two.

It is a fascinating story especially when compared to the last ruthless mobster with a similar story who the FBI had been after for some considerable time with no success, even with the full force of Elliot Ness and the untouchables chasing after him.

Al Capone led his illegal bootlegging, gambling and prostitution empire with impunity from the law but it was the US Treasury Department that brought about his downfall, could we find ourselves with a case of history repeating itself when Mr Trumps Tax Returns are finally revealed.

As they used to say on the wireless in the old days, “tune in next week for the next exciting instalment!”

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 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.

    An apt comparison, Joe.

  2. Trump should get himself a gangster name like Scarface, except that one has already been taken; how about Bald Eagle.
