The first story that irritated me was the one about the "spy" in the holdall. The mainstream media were salivating like po' traylor folks over a KFC bargain bucket. I won't rehearse the tawdry details, mainly because they are of no relevance to you and me whatsoever and the idea that the loved ones of this unfortunate man had to read all about it in some tit-filled rag upsets me more than it should.
The second story that followed hard upon was the Bristol archictect murder. You would think Bristol has had enough publicity since we learned that The Stig and Banksy are actually the same bloke.
We learned that someone was arrested. Fair enough, but this man was obviously "one of the usual suspects". A bit like being arrested for driving a smart car while being black. "Oh, yes", said Mrs Nosey Neighbour down the road, "He always used to recycle his carrier bags and uses too much Elnett. His finger nails were a bit on the long side and he had little devil horns growing out of his head and some say he can cause people to come out in boils". A white male, over 50? Never been married? God, I'm so confused - is he a poof or what?
My direct ancestor was executed as a witch in Salem, Mass. The evidence for her being a witch was more compelling than the utter poisoned tittle-tattle that has been allowed to circulate about the man who has been arrested in connection with the Bristol murder.
Shame on the British Press for deciding that, not only is this man guilty for being a fruitcake, he is guilty because he is white and over 50 and believe me, in today's world we appear to be the new black.
