They say politicians are always plotting and have their noses in the trough.
I proved myself to be guilty on both counts this week, exposed by some very smart technology.
I can only apologise and beg forgiveness.
In this case the “plotting” was my allotment plot at Testwood.
The “trough” was the water trough that I use to keep my carrots, sweetcorn, parsnips and potatoes alive.
I didn’t know it but my smartphone, which I was carrying in my pocket was on and responsive to my movements… in an absolutely random fashion it turned into Facebook and started recording a live session.
A lot of my followers were treated to a 30 minute video showing of the inside of my trouser pocket and the gurgling and swishing of water as I filled up and used my watering cans.
I can only hope that during this unplanned 30 minute session, I didn’t verbally curse anyone or anything as I am sometimes inclined to do when I have seen what the wood pigeons have done to my cabbages.

It’s interesting to hear Nigel Farage express the view that Brexit is so important that if it breaks up the United Kingdom it will be worth it.
