…And while I sit on station waiting to the floor of the ambulance to dry due to my last patient having some difficulty keeping their blood on the inside I have a chance to moan at the Daily Mail.
I'm in today's edition and they make it sound like the words are coming right from my mouth rahter than an accurate reporting.
The first paragraph is the worst, making it sound like I'm some sort or hero being surrounded by knife-wielding maniacs. Trust me, if that were the case I'd be driving away quicker than you can say, “Look at that sensible man driving away from the armed nutters”.
After the hyperbole it settles down a little, but if you are a regular reader then you know that the words aren't my own – it is quite interesting to see how it's been written for the style of the paper, words like 'horrific', 'shocking' and 'pressure cooker'.
It's not a huge misrepresentation – but it does make it sound like East London is a war-zone rather than a place that can get a bit rowdy.
Still it *is* the Daily Mail, so what else did I expect when I chatted to the reporter earlier in the year.
