Why Ms Raccoon is howling at the biggest moon since the year she was born and taking no prisoners.

Other than a couple of days last week, I have been in hospital for the past three weeks. First Sepsis, then the effects of the attempts to cure me of that. I am now the original Christmas Turkey – being fattened up so that I can die comfortably of the cancer. The irony is not lost on [...]

Parish Newsletter of St Raccoon’s with Bleeding Heart.

A warm welcome to the newest members of our congregation, Ali Mustapha-anuvver and his husband Ali Mustapha-anuvver-relative-somewhere. May they live in peace amongst us, and instil us with the wisdom of their ancient ways. Our little congregation has finally been blessed with the child refugee that we had pleaded with the authorities to be allowed [...]

Between Iraq and a hard place.

Grown men don’t cry. They did. That day. 50 years ago. Those who were born or reached maturity after 1966 will not understand the world of that time; no mobile phones, no internet, no rolling news, we had not been groomed by the nightly parade of Sky’s ‘anything with blood’ version of the national news. [...]

On Yer Ched, Evans!

The partisan reporting from all aspects of the media this morning, has resulted in headlines such as ‘Fury of women’s groups as footballer is cleared in retrial’. Football forums have disappeared under a deluge of derogatory comments regarding the sexual behaviour of the young girl. The most pertinent fact regarding the introduction of new evidence into [...]

Marmageddon.

Never in the history of half eaten jars of distinctly unpalatable foodstuffs having to be sourced from other shops has the British [...]

Mad Dogs and Englishmen.

I bring you an utterly bizarre case from across the pond to exercise your brain today. Just outside Windham, south west of Bangor in the state of Maine lived a man called ‘Skip’ Kilmartin. He was what we term in the UK a ‘care in the community case’. Following an assault on an elderly man [...]

The Clown Prosecution Service.

This is 18 year old Connor Jones wearing his Halloween outfit. It is unlikely to be a custom made outfit, which means that somewhere a manufacturer has made several such outfits and hopefully sold them. Wearing it, and standing with a group of fellow teenagers has just cost Connor £90 and a criminal record. He [...]

Watch the Coppers, and the Pounds will roll in…

Ms Raccoon was distracted this morning by a fascinating portal called ‘Bluelight.eu-supply.com‘. Doesn’t sound that riveting? For a Raccoon who loves scavenging through official documents it was manna from heaven! A Raccoon could, and did, get lost for hours in there. Here is all the minutiae of the deals to supply police stations with doughnuts [...]
