Relying on the kindness of strangers

Today’s nomination for “Stupidest Person in the World might go to Mark Boyle, whose plan to walk from Glastonbury to India with no money, relying on the kindness of strangers to keep him fed, etc, didn’t go according to what, for want of a better word, he may have described as a ‘plan’.

He got as far as Calais (French port town with ferry from the UK) and then began to starve, blaming his lack of ability to speak French resulting in people assuming he was an asylum seeker, or possibly just a filthy freeloading moron. Unpeturbed, he is going to instead try to walk around the coast of the UK whilst teaching himself French so that he can try again next year and starve somewhere just inside the Italian border.

I give you Mark Boyle, today’s Stupidest Person in the World and possibly next month’s Hungriest Person in the World.

  1. My guess is that he is trying to work himself up to becoming a ‘human shield’.
