What a complete waste of time this latest witch hunt by the Civil Service on Suella Braverman who was accused of breaching the Ministerial code with her actions over her speeding offence.

She was caught speeding and was entitled to take a speed awareness course, which is usually only an option when the speeding offence is very minor.

She asked officials if it would be possible to take the course in private, an option which many high profile people have done before.

Due to her high ranking position in the Government she was told it was not possible due to her needing her security people with her.

Accepting this fact she took the only option available to her and paid the fine and accepted the points on her licence.

These facts became public knowledge and the witch hunt began.

Having spoken to the Government adviser, Sir Laurie Magnus, who advises the Government on ethics the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak made the following statement; “these matters do not amount to a breach of the ministerial code.”

Personally, I’m getting a little fed up with these petty witch hunts looking for any excuse to get rid of right wing Government Ministers, when this sort of thing was portrayed on the TV programme “Yes, Prime Minister” it was considered a joke and something to be laughed at, however in real life it looks a little small minded and childish.

I dread watching the news lately as we have to watch as a member of the public is arrested for trying to remove Just stop oil protesters who were blocking the road which is a criminal offence and yet the Police do nothing to remove the protesters.

Now, yet another attack on Boris Johnson from the Civil Service, I can’t be the only one to be thinking we need someone with some “bollocks” like Suella Braverman to sort this country out, now there’s a thought.


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.
