Life has taught me to be sceptical about so many things especially nowadays with the advent of Facebook and all the other social media sites which are full of untruths and in some cases complete and utter bollocks if you’ll pardon my French!

This was exactly how I was feeling having watched last nights Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan, with both Meghan and Oprah overacting dreadfully, leaving me thinking what I was hearing just didn’t seem to ring true, perhaps it will make sense when we hear the other side of the story.

However, following last nights interview with Harry and Meghan The Royal Family have chosen as yet not to comment and I feel I should do likewise and follow Royal Protocol and refrain from comment myself, a lesson to be learned here I think; “Never complain, never explain.”

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.

    A good summary. I didn’t watch the whole thing, but wasn’t convinced either….whole lot of acting going on, but then I thought that about the wedding too.

  2. The best thing they could do, in my opinion, is nothing. Do not feed the media frenzy, or add to the overhyped and overacted nonsense. Of course, if they do that then they will be further castigated by the mob!
