Tens of thousands of people from all over the world have made their way to Glasgow to demand more action on climate change.
Leading activists such as Vanessa Nakate and Greta Thunberg will address the crowds in Glasgow, while elsewhere in the city, protesters from Scientist Rebellion blocked a road bridge over the River Clyde and have been arrested.
It is estimated there are 60.000 protesters taking part in the protest march, with another 100 climate change demonstrations planned for other parts of the UK while events are expected to take place in a further 100 countries including Kenya, Turkey, France, Brazil, Australia and Canada.
OBVIOUSLY ALL THE PEOPLE FROM THE UK AND ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO HAVE MADE THEIR WAY TO GLASGOW TO TAKE PART IN THESE PROTESTS HAVE ALL WALKED THERE OR COME ON THEIR BICYCLES, AFTER ALL YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO GET THERE BY OTHER MEANS AND ADD TO GLOBAL WARMING WOULD YOU?
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
Do I detect a modicum of cynicism Joe?
I thought I was mistaken. Just checking!
