EXTINCTION REBELLION PROTESTS.

Extinction Rebellion are at it again, how very tedious these irritating people are, but then I suppose that’s what they want.

The group says thousands of people are expected to take part in their “Impossible Rebellion”, which plans to “target the root cause of the climate and ecological crisis” which makes me wonder why they are protesting in London and not in the countries that produce the most pollution.

Should they need some assistance locating the most polluting countries I have managed with a quick search on the interweb found them and they are;

China 30%

USA 15%

India7%

Russia 5%

Japan 4%

Quite how they would get to any of them to protest whilst not using a car or plane or any form of petrol or diesel driven vehicle I have no idea and it’s a hell of a long way to China on a bicycle.

One has to assume that these people have such high principals that they all live in freezing cold garrets as they would not allow themselves to use a gas fired boiler to heat their dwelling, nor to use said boiler to heat water for a quick shower, no wonder they are so miserable and angry.

I must say I get quite angry every time they have one of these protests and the amount of pollution they cause by stopping the traffic for surely this is the way to cause global warming.

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.
