Lots of news crews in Hampton Bishop yesterday - BBC, ITV, Sky, Panorama, The One Show - although with the water receding from its high on Tuesday and Wednesday they only got a sense of the issue (although roads in and out of the village are still closed and the pumps are going like a bastard).
The Bunch of Carrots opened yesterday evening for a roast, they thought they’d get 40 but it was absolutely rammed, amazing atmosphere.
I was approached by Peter Wilson from BBC and asked if I’d do an interview. I said “no thanks” - I didn’t want to be shown on TV in a pub having a jolly time - and he was quite put out, gave the impression that I should be grateful. Whatever.
Then I saw the entitled prick jump the queue of patiently waiting villagers to get food. WAC. I was tempted to say as much to him but decided to focus my self-righteous indignation on too much HPA. Which definitely lifted morale.
