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.
