Saturday Evening Posts Worth Reading and The 25 Hour News Service.

The 25 Hour News; a new feature by the incomparable VictoriaLucas. The End of an Era – the very last ‘Exposure’ spoof by Victoria Lucas. The best of them all. And on the 18th day, did Call Me Ishmael rise again and rant forth. Lovestruck Hague and Dame Angelina by Capitalists at Work. My favourite […]

A Matter of F.A.C.T Part 3

Setting the scene – Bryn Estyn and North Wales care home allegations; anatomy of a Witch Hunt? I’m sorry if this is a bit long and dry, but I wanted to put some later comments in a proper context. Here, in outline is the continuing story of North Wales Care Home Abuse scandal.  Beginnings   […]

Saturday Evening Posts Worth Reading.

The ‘aiming firmly at the False Allegators’ Edition.   Moor Larkin and the collapse of the main allegations in the original and never broadcast ‘Newsnight’. Rabbitaway and a call for witnesses – please heed! The cost of Operation Yewtree so far. Protection of Children hampered by lack of money. No money to support those who adopt […]

All Cats Not So Grey in the Dark.

The notion that sex in some circumstances is degrading harks back to ideas of racial purity, eugenics even. Some sexual acts can be degrading, both to men and women – but it is never the act that moral campaigners refer to as degrading – it is the circumstances preceding it, and those partaking of the […]

Beating Your Curd and Whey.

A tip o’ the Dutch cap this morning to Jasper Kuin for showing Dutch courage in the face of health and safety regulations.  It is a Bank Holiday week-end; it used to be called Whitsun, but in these secular days that has been changed to ‘Spring Bank Holiday’ – however some things never change. The Gloucestershire Police […]

Ms Raccoon regrets…

You are too late. Should have called in earlier. She’s already left. She has jetted off to sunny Glasgow to attend a seminar on Moral Panic. She thinks Marrakech would have been a better idea too. Assuming she survives a Scottish spring day or two, she will be back on Sunday. More than one link in […]

A disturbing post from Rabbitaway – who knew?  The Court of Protection moves on from deciding who you can have sex with – to who you can talk to! Dioclese on nursery rhymes. Nigel Scott on wikipedia. Misanthropic spoof – excellent stuff!

They’ll be Coming Round the Mountain…

Or rather they won’t! Was I the only person who raised a silent cheer at the news that the Nepalese Sherpas had walked off Everest, and that thus ‘this year’s Everest expeditions had been forced to cancel’? Not that the Sherpas actually ‘own’ Everest or have any legal means to stop people climbing the mountain, but […]

The Return of the Bionic Raccoon.

Done it! Done it! Done it! Been there; got the t-shirt; everything is behind me now – literally! It was far from ‘the breeze’ that I expected it to be – probably the most testing week I’ve had so far. As can be reliably expected of La Raccoon, I have developed every known complication that […]
