"lie... to make an untrue statement "

Jennes Mitchell,

Assistant producer.
STV News.

Article 2019

"Missing hill walker told rescue team to leave her in the wild".
-NO I DID NOT.
That is a lie.

"wild"
Eskdalemuir forest is a man made pine plantation.
Therefore it is not "wild".
It is a cultivated forestry development which is inhabited by various individuals, families as well as a famous Buddhist monastery.

"Said she did not want to be found"
-NO I DID NOT.
That is a lie.

"Comes from Carsethorn"
-NO I DO NOT.
That is a lie.

"Her rescuers"
-NO RESCUE.
I did not need rescuing.
That is a lie.

I was sitting in front of one of the nicest bothies in Scotland drying my socks on the stove minding my own business when a off duty police man popped in and suggested I halt my 400km odd trail 15 km from the finish and let him , a complete stranger in the middle of a forest plantation , drive me back... That was not going to happen.

Apologies to the police man who's fragile ego was dented when I refused him his few seconds of fame.
Boo Hoo George/ John ...whatever.
I suspect his false statement was borne of sour grapes.

As a result of the false statements I add...

I believe the police officer author is a liar.

As Jennes MItchell wrote the false article and, according to the first newspaper clipping, could not be bothered to find out the other side of the story, I believe, she perpetrated the lie.

As such...

I believe, with the information I was presented with, and knowing the truth, Jennes Mitchell must also be a liar?
Or incompetent?
Bored?

What?

What is it with gossip?

I am drawn to the quote;

"Bullshit travels at the speed of boredom"
and
"liars, liars pants on fire".


Whatever...

Get a life Jennes.

See the world, go do something out your comfort zone, climb a mountain, take a few months to understand the difference between the "wild" and a man made forest plantation,

In conclusion.
 To all those flappy tongued gossips of dreary, grey concrete habitations...

Rag readers...

There is a big old world out there.
A big, big old world.

There is more to life than designer sunglasses, reading tabloid poop, stepping over pavement kebab vomit, tinky winky handbags and perpetrating malicious wap dribble.
