Insulate Britain protesters have this morning proven themselves officially as mad as a box of frogs and personally I’m wondering if these people shouldn’t be locked up for their own protection.
Apparently they have decided that entering a live motorway and walking on the white lines towards the oncoming traffic is a sensible way to protest their cause, these people don’t seem to have the brains they were born with.
I have on numerous occasions pointed out that it is only a matter of time before one of them gets killed and at this rate it won’t be much longer before it happens, let’s hope they don’t cause a major accident and take some innocent motorists with them.
One assumes they are unable to see the potential danger of their actions rather like the Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison who in June 1913 at the Derby at Epsom walked in from of Anmer, the race horse owned by King George V, it is said she thought the horse would go round her and had not expected to die.
So here’s a piece of advice for the Insulate Britain protesters who whilst walking towards the oncoming traffic are not expecting to die, take it from me that rather like the kings horse who was unable to to avoid Emily Wilding Davison a 40 ton lorry is also unable to take avoiding action if you are barmy enough to walk in front of it.
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 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.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
I have been keeping up with it on Good Morning Britain 🇬🇧
