Exclusive – ‘Lol’ Goddard and the ‘Back Door’ fans…

Dame Lowell Goddard now claims that far from ‘running away to her bach’ her resignation was an honourable protest against a child abuse inquiry that was, in Kiwi slang, well and truly munted. She has now written to the Homo Affairs Committee, presumably addressed to the absent Keith Vaz, to say: “I have recommended in my […]

Homo Affairs Select Committee

I really don’t like Keith Vaz. I don’t like his posturing, his jumping on every available bandwagon, his readiness to ruin the reputation of others and the glee with which he does it. Which just happen to be exactly the same reasons why I don’t like the headlines regarding Vaz in the Mirror today. Some […]

Trollie and I…

Ms Raccoon hasn’t had much of an appetite, the past few weeks, for trawling round her usual rubbish dumps. As you probably realised, I’ve been none too well. Hence I had an appointment for an extra scan this morning – and what a pleasure it was not to be having the two hour PET scan, […]

Eurovision, Tunnel Vision, and other visions.

Normally, Ms Raccoon stays as far away from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) as humanly possible. She is well aware that good friends of hers think that the Eurovision Song Contest is the best thing since moroccan hammams and join with the mainstream media in gorging themselves on obscure Ukrainian folk dirges sung by men in drag with […]

Slater & Gordon ‘Bleeding Cash’ – Part 864.

Dee Cole, poster girl for Slater & Gordon, got her caravan on the south coast to gave her ‘closure’ and help her forget the time she was, er, raped by Savile in a caravan on the south coast….if only Slater & Gordon had done as well out of that tale as Dee did. Yet again Slater & […]

Credible Witnesses, Navel Battles, & Hypocritical Whingers.

Credible Witnesses.  The ever gullible Surrey Police seem to have reversed their much publicised ‘arrest first, investigate later’ policy; this time they investigated – then arrested their ‘credible witness’. It was an unfortunate fact that the next letter in their alphabetical list of operation happened to be a ‘B’. Even more unfortunate that the first […]

#Spingate hits the buffers.

What is it with Labour? They are incapable of finding a spinmeister who can keep all his tales in the air. Andy Coulson, for all his faults, would never have let Cameron be caught out with with a story of not taking an empty seat ‘because he wanted to sit next to his wife’ – […]

The Bleaching Bishop.

I seem to be having a ‘bishopfest’ this month. There are a lot of these Bishops around – due in no small measure to the propensity of ‘The One Holy True Original Church’ to ordain anyone who makes the correct donation to their establishment… The Rev. Dr. James Humble has progressed from the days of this certificate – […]

Hex in the City.

Ms Raccoon is temporarily indisposed again, so I offer you this Youtube item which is currently trending in the US. I thought it should be part of your general education – for fear that a young lady, or gentleman, eyeing your pride and joy, and saying ‘I’m going to put a Hex on that’ might […]

Exclusive – Stephen Hamilton

There is a worrying shuffling of feet and staring into the middle distance in Academia. It is understandable – there is not much point in sticking your neck out so far that you end up with no job. The same thing applies to journalists. Better to keep quiet until the ‘abuse hysteria’ has passed; if it ever […]
