There was a regular commentator on this blog who used to delight in taking me to task for my ‘privileged’ background, usually in disparaging tones. His assumption was one he was forced to eat for breakfast when I pennedContinue reading →
Kevin Harrington appears to have spent most of his working life immersed in alphabet soup. He is the author of Serious Case Reviews ranging from Child ‘A’ in London, through Child ‘C’ in Portsmouth, inexorablyContinue reading →
Ms Raccoon has been off scurrying down another rabbit hole. It proved to be a rich seam of material. We may be some time digging into this one folks…

It used to be that we said ‘What happens in the US this week, will follow in the UK next week’ – but recently we have been following in the footsteps, closely in the footsteps, of Australia. TheContinue reading →
I think I’ll toss a new name into the hat full of suggestions for a person deemed suitable to drink from the poisoned chalice that is to be set in front of the ‘Chair’ of the Independent Inquiry intoContinue reading →
The slur-mongers – I refuse to dignify them with the term ‘moral entrepreneurs’ – who base their business model on peddling tit-bits of salacious gossip to the post-Leveson media are coming under increased scrutiny today following the universal disquietContinue reading →
The Internet mob have claimed another scalp. A woman who chose to run a brothel told a man involved in money laundering that one of her customers used to sign into the brothel as ‘Cliff Richard’. Naturally coming fromContinue reading →
