I believe it was this week that 20,000 Scottish football fans came down to London as there was a match where their team were playing, don’t ask me who they were playing for I have absolutely no idea.

Vast numbers of young unvaccinated Scotsmen gathered in the streets drinking and I imagine watching the match on television and the next day went back to Scotland.

Upon their return home there was a sudden increase in the number of recorded cases of Covid, 2000 of which were directly traceable to those who came down for the football, now how could this have happened when they were all socially distanced and wearing masks.

I could be wrong but I’m inclined to think the following photograph may go some way to explain things.

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.

    My eighteen-year-old grandson and his friends, all part of a school group bubble that were regularly tested went to London on the coach to celebrate the end of school and sixth form (not for the football) They all returned infected with Covid and each of them went on to infect a number of others before their symptoms began to show.
    My grandson infected his sister and her boyfriend. (Vaccinated parents are fine). He went to the pub with four other friends and infected all of them apart from the one that was sitting furthest away.
