NotW Fallout continued…

In the wee hours of Sunday morning an old corroded filling fell out on to my pillow.

I know, rather more information than you needed and what does it jolly well have to do with News Corp?

Well, be patient and I will reveal all.

I hot-footed it to my dentist on Monday. After poking and prodding around for a few minutes he began to mutter something inaudible under his breath.

He then leaned back on his black leather swivel chair and shook his head. I have a sweet-tooth so I knew it would be bad.

Sorry, I am digressing again….

He told me off for missing so many appointments in the past year and I explained that I am a journalist who was doing shift work at the time.

It was then a light came into his eyes as if he were possessed by an evil spirit and he began to talk about the NOTW and all the revelations and allegations.

You see, I told you I would get to the point eventually.

His accent suggested he was Eastern European but he was a little reticent about mentioning where he was born.

He would only refer to his homeland as “my country”.

My country has problems…..the state…… Britain is democratic….. we look to [Britain]..”.

He was genuinely disconcerted by the unfolding News of the World drama.

He went on to say that if “we” could not get it right what chance did his country have.

I have to admit I was surprised. I had forgotten that other countries still see the UK as a shining beacon for democracy, ethics and morals.

My dentist’s perspective was in stark contrast to my nonchalant taxi driver a few days earlier who was not remotely surprised by the news headlines.

I have taught myself not to get bothered with all that stuff otherwise I would be pulling my hair out,” he stated.
