The Final Words Of Anna Raccoon

I received an email from Anna Raccoon this morning asking me to publish her reply to the eulogy that I posted yesterday, which attracted so many well deserved comments from supporters of her now deleted blog. This, of course, I have done with pleasure .....



I am humbled, truly.

Reading through these comments I am reminded of the many exceptional people that exist on the internet. Good people, talented writers – yes, you Gildas – don’t you dare give up! – and big hearts.

Unfortunately, there are also a myriad of talentless, embittered souls, the pimply faced youths of Andrew Marr’s comment, spewing bile and negativity, metaphorically pulling the legs off any spider they happen to pass – just because they can. Because it’s free. Because it is a lawless area. As it should be – and that very freedom that they abuse will be at risk one day because of them.

I am not speaking of the obsessive adolescent ramblings of John Demetriou and his imaginary friend - ‘only I can see you Kevin’. They are pussy cats compared to the truly deranged that are out there in the blogosphere – I understand they are claiming credit for the demise of my blog – unfortunately I never read them, it was only after I had closed the blog that they wrote their latest poison missive and someone pointed me in that direction thinking that they had punctured my hide terminally. No such luck Demetriuzela.

No, out there in the ether, there are some seriously dangerous people, who targeted me many months ago for daring to hold a different opinion from them. They didn’t just ‘out’ me, they have continued to dig obsessively into my life, fantasising where they were unable to obtain information. They imagine, I suppose, that they were hurting me, punishing me for not agreeing with them. In fact the damage is far wider than that. They also cause intense pain amongst those I am related to. For although I have not known my family, they are out there, and had started the long journey of truth seeking which is a search for far flung members of your family.

They too, were Googling, and reading that I was a paedophile, a government agent, a ‘sleeper’ planted in the blogosphere to prevent the truth emerging (Jesus!) – faux psychiatric reports on me emerged, discussing the severe mental illness that apparently occasioned my adopting ‘different disguises’ – the allegedly ‘eminent psychiatrist’ responsible for that one had obviously never come across a woman who had been married three times and changed her name each time in accordance with British law! My National Health records were accessed - I know there are laws against this sort of thing, but the people concerned are mentally ill. Laws won't stop them.

My unknown family learnt that everything I did was in shallow pursuit of ‘hits’, that nobody ever linked to my work because they liked it, only because I had ‘brown nosed’ them. They learnt that I only ‘claimed’ to be a Quaker.

I could go on but I shan’t. Suffice it to say, that nervous as they were about making contact anyway, they have decided that it would be better not to have contact with such a patently despicable creature as me. That pains me for myself and them. I, in turn, realised that much of what has been written about me is because I had become better known. Others have had dissenting voices, but not the thousands of readers, so I became a particular target – and that could only get worse as time went on.

It has been like a lead weight on my shoulders, knowing that every day as I tried to write, amongst you good people there were also these utter snakes who visited the blog only to see what they could purloin, twist, plagiarise, take out of context, cause mischief with, denigrate. Last week-end I was plagued with e-mails demanding this and demanding that as the price of not writing any more about me. It completely overshadowed my delight at the Sheila Martin result. I stared at the screen for hours, feeling very, very alone in my battle with these people, and finally decided to just 'pull the plug'.

There is an intensely negative side to the Blogosphere; confrontational, aggressive. I had hoped to establish a political blog that was not so testosterone driven, where women – 50% of the public – were welcome. Some will say I should have stood up to the bullies, that letting them win is, well, letting them win – but the personal price I was paying was too high for me.

I have stood up to them for a long time, my illness started at the end of last year; there have been many days when the only thing I have done is write the blog, only to read from Demetriou that there was nothing wrong with me, my ‘alleged illness’ was merely a ‘drive for hits’, and then creep back to bed, pausing only to throw breakfast up on the way as I struggled to live through the treatment. Hashimoto Disease for your information you pathetic little dolt Demetriou.

I didn’t make any closing statement for precisely that reason – I knew that anything I said would be quoted and misquoted, pilloried by the likes of Demetriou. It wouldn’t have been my choice and was not with my permission that Obnoxio made the statement he did; but now that he has done and it has engendered this gracious response from Gildas and the many kind comments, it is only fair to say farewell. I shan’t be back, there is no cache of my work, no record, nothing for anyone to tease apart and take another meaning from, no more fun to be had baiting Anna Raccoon, she no longer exists. Nor will I be writing under any other name or on any other web site as some have suggested.

The air is fresher in the real world, it is full of real people (here in France anyway!) that wish you nothing but well. They seek to heal, not hurt, to help not hinder. They are honest and truthful, not furtive and secretive. When they do have feuds it is over something important like the menu for the Rugby Club dinner.

So if you’ll excuse me folks, I’m back off to gulp great lungfuls of fresh air.

Fare thee well folks ....
you were some of the best commentators to appear on any blog.



+++ UPDATE+++

Gotty says : Former contributors of her blog have just launched an "open home for all the fans of Anna Raccoon, hopefully to allow the continuation of the spirit of her blog".  Why not pop over and take a look to see what would have happened if the Chilean miners had been trapped in a British mine ;-)

Fare thee well Anna, and enjoy the rest. And if you need a change of scene, you could always spend some time with Sister Eva at one of her cheese and wine and full bore pistol shotting events. On second thought.....

That E mail saddens me deeply. I'll miss you Anna. Your style of wit and humour will be missed by us all.

Ampers said...

Phew!

First of all, I nearly had a heart attack Gotty. I couldn't easily read the lead-in because of the colour in Google Reader and thought these were your words and you were going to stop.

I really couldn't bear that.

But I must say that I think Anna is a really decent person to write a reply to your post. She evidently wants to get shot of the whole business but she shows a decency that few possess out there by replying to us.

It is dispiccable the way that these bastards treat people who are decent human beings. I have to admit that if these buggers called me a paedophile nobody who knows me would believe it. I'd be more likely to strangle the little buggers than want to have sex with them!

If Anna is reading this, have a good life, the French are great people and your remark about the rugby club dinner menu confirms everything I know about them (I served with NATO for three years in Paris at the end of the fifties).

Personally, if I had a little more savings I wouldn't mind emigrating to Chile, not just because of what has just happened but I have had so many reports about their warmth and kindness and although the Mining Tzar may be of English decent, this was from the nineteenth century when the English were a great race. What has happened to that streak which built and ran the greatest Empire in the world? From such a tiny island?

Ampers said...

Those were the days. I had a Desert Eagle 44, a Walther PPK 9mm short, amongst six guns. (A lovely .22 Walther rifle with a silencer and 8x telescopic sights as well - could have been useful nowadays).

gladiolys said...

Anna:  I read your site often and commented a few times, usually when taking issue with your views.  I always found you stimulating and entertaining and I'll miss your web presence.  Although your views were strong, they were not puerile and bile-laden like others.  Thank you for your time and effort and good luck with your illness and have a happy life.

Old Slaughter said...

This post sickens me. The torment you have endured is so very unjust. 

Enjoy the fresh air, even if it be French, and may your ailments be alleviated as the stress diminishes. 

Lilith said...

So very sad you have endured such persecution Anna.  Your blog was wonderful: inspiring, informative, sad and funny.  But when it disappeared and I googled "Anna Raccoon" I got a tsmall taste of what  you have been fighting.  I don't blame you. I am more surprised that you withstood the abuse for as long as you have.  Thank you for giving so much of your precious time and energy.

surely these people can be tracked down and sued for defamation?

there are definately people that are being paid to attack others on the net....they post hateful attacks-yet cannot construct a reply when confronted by facts.

i am sure it has happened in the u.s.

Life is for living first, fighting oppression second. Bon voyage, Anna.

Richard said...

Thank you Anna for taking the time and trouble to respond.  What has happened to you is despicable.  All good wishes for your life away from all this, and may the future bring you health and peace.

Stabledoor said...

I had no idea there was such sick and twisted persecution going on against Anna out there, and I'm really struggling to understand why there is such hatred and vitriol. It always struck me as one of the sanest, most perceptive and entertaining blogs and I visited every day. It will be sadly missed

Giolla said...

Yeesh, there are no words to describe how shitty the people carrying out that sort of vendetta really are. I'd have caved in far far faster I suspect, so all the more power to Anna's elbow. I'm going to really miss her writing.

Caedmon's Cat said...

<span>I'm so very sorry that Anna has pulled the plug - but I fully understand and respect her reasons for doing so. It's a sordid and nasty world out there. I was a regular visitor to her blog - and also commented as faulkd. I didn't always agree with what she said, but uniformity of thought isn't desirable in the libertarian/anarchist sphere - and it shouldn't be anywhere else. I firmly believe in Voltaire's maxim: 'I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.' That used to be the prevailing philosophy in our country, but alas, no longer. Anna - please take care of yourself. Your presence will be greatly missed.</span>

Can you tell me why I should give a fuck about some blogger finding something better to do with their time?

I have tears in my eyes from reading your message Anna.

Though my time reading your blog was short, it was so sweet. I hope we can carry on your spirit in our own blogs.

Good luck in your real life and enjoy it. You will be remembered forever.

I have a picture in my mind of Commander Churchill-Coleman on the BBC news, standing outside New Scotland Yard after another bombing in the eighties and saying, "Now, there is no cause for alarm."

Actually, given the best of the Blogescenti appear to be suffering an attrition rate more closely associated with Bomber Command in 1942 I think there might be. It's like a poor mans version of The Feathermen.

AR was one of my "goto," sites every morning when I really ought to have been doing more important things. Erudite and thoughtful, it was a pleasure to read. I shall miss it.

The Hashimodo thing doesn't look like a bundle of laughs but I'm absolutely enraged at the persecution of which you write. I genuinely had no idea such things happened but why I should be surprised I don't know. The only solace, and it's not much, is to ask what these twisted individuals would be doing with their time if the internet did not exist. Potentially then, your ordeal may have saved someone else less able to cope, either on or off the internet.

Good luck in France;  I always thought Frenchmen where there for Englishmen to practice shooting arrows at but I guess the world moves on. Perhaps you can turn adversity to the greater good by devoting yourself to teaching the French how to queue or by introducing them to personnal hygiene. Enjoy the rugby though..... I do envy you that!

Woman on a raft said...

The best revenge is living well.  I'm amazed really that with the outrageous beauty which is France you spent any time at all worrying about this septic isle.  I'm glad you did though, and to prove it I am this very week commissioning the LPAs.  Without your advice I simply would not have known about the wisdom of setting them up.

An important subject that and one which uncovered a festering injustice.

In a way I'm almost relieved that it is a separate matter which has made your mind up; I had my tin foil hat on as thought it might be a certain judge's  minions leaning on you.  I'll stand myself down from red alert on that account.

laurent said...

And i know how lucky i am to have her at arms' length (a few kilometers). Being a blogger myself, i'm one of the fortunate ones to have met her. And what a woman this is. As witty as intelligent as humourous as inspired as her prose.
Next time i see her (in the flesh), i'll make sure she's kept her self, her humor, that warm laugh you might have guessed behind her words. Anna's a lovable, formidable, worth knowing person. And i just hate (i shouldn't, i know) with the bottom of my soul those despicable ones that bullied her.
Fuck it.

As for 'butlincat', I don't know you nor do I wish to but it seems that you have been one of Anna's problems.

Anonymity is a powerful tool. My anonymity allowed a man to go free from prison and me to destroy Labour at Cambridge in the general election - all, I may add, with the generous help of Anna Raccoon.

Still, if you send me your name, address, bank details and PIN number, along with a CRB check, I will reconsider.

Daedalus X. Parrot said...

Of all the campaigning and conscientous bloggers out there, Anna was the best. I read much of her output and everything she wrote confirmed the opinion that she is sincere, dedicated, quite selfless, forensic in her analysis and fearless in uncovering the truth. 

Sometimes she took my breath away by the way she revealed an unpleasant truth that my ignorance had prevented me from seeing.

Mr Butlincat:
If you really think Anna did you a disservice over the Hollie Greig case then please quote me from her analysis: where she lied or did any harm. I think her appraisal is out there on the wesbite of another of your "enemies".

Anna worked very hard trying to find which side of this terribly sad case the truth lay. She devoted much time; maybe she heard the original sad story and wanted to, you know, help the victim.  But Anna is not one to be swayed by cases that are full of violent emotion and innuendo but lacking in any provable fact.

Anna was a double edged sword. If anyone was to ask for her help, they should be damn sure that they were not covering up any lies because Anna would slice through to the truth quicker than you could say opportunistic grandstander.

Hi,

I have followed the emergence of the filth that has surfaced surrounding the fantasies and lies claiming Hollie Greig was sexually abused for which NO ONE has produced a shred of valid admissible evidence nor one iota of fact to vary Roy Greig's obvious suicide.

It is the under belly and degenerate failures of life who formed a lynch mob to attack and abuse Anna who like others DARED to voice the truth NOT the lies of Robert Green, Matt Quinn, George McKendrick, David Icke and their parasites.

To spare your blushes here on someone elses blog I make no further comment but to read ALL the documentation & More details of Anna RACCOON see:

Katabasis said...

To echo what others have said, if you're reading Anna - utterly disgusted and sickened by what has happened to you. I had no idea it had got to this level. Frankly some heads deserve to be cracked (at a minimum) over this and I'm  lucky enough to still be young and strong enough to do it.

I'm going to miss your blog so much. You have been an absolute inspiration to me. What a woman! What an inspiration! I'm about to start ramping up into a lot of activity thanks to a very wonderful change in life circumstances and your adventures and activism will be at the forefront of my mind. I will fight to the bitter end in your honour Anna.

I also have a word for her detractors, in particular those from the Hollie Grieg "camp". Some of you reading may have remembered my own contribution(s) to the Hollie articles on Anna's site. For those that don't, (and I risk here revealing too much and being on the receiving end of the same treatment as Anna) - my family suffered events that are not a hundred miles away from the experiences of Hollie and family. A close, vulnerable relative was abused while in care and those responsible were able to pull enough strings to ensure they got away with it scot free. I couldn't possibly be more sympathetic to Hollie's case. However, what you have done here is the most obscene crimes.

Not only have you silenced one of the world's kindest and strongest warrior-women, you've also destroyed hope for anyone like me or my family who are visited with actual abuse to see justice served. And for both of those things, one day you will find my teeth buried in your throat.

No, we know that all the UFOs in Scotland are over BonnyBridge, a long way south of Aberdeen. http://www.ufoencounters.co.uk/TheFalkirkTriangle.html

Not too impressed with this 'Anna Raccoon', I have to say. She was tripping herself up left right and centre in emails we exchanged yesterday. One minute she was saying she hadn't placed her name and email address on the St Christopher's Old Scholars page - that someone else had - (susanne.nundy@courtofprotection.co.uk) the next she was saying she had given permission afterall (after I'd pointed out that I'd been in touch with David Curzons who manages the Old Scholars page and he said old scholars MUST request it themselves).

She says in her 'Intimidation and cooercion' post that "the e-mail address given is not and has never been a genuine e-mail address."

But if it was not a genuine email address: how could St Christophers contact her using that address to add her to the list as she told me yesterday?

She also says she never used the courtofprotection.co.uk address after retiring in 2000 but the domain is there in the wayback archives in 2003 - under construction in France - where she lives.

Raccoon's site is down for 'maintenance' at the moment so I can well imagine she is altering some of her posts as we speak in the event the Office of the Public Guardian start looking more closely at her claims.

Here's what she says in her 'Inexorable choices' post:

"I worked in the Lord Chancellor?s Office the last time Labour (under Tony Blair) made one of their knee jerk attempts at reforming the constitution to suit themselves. Blair got up one morning and ?abolished? the Lord Chancellor. Chaos ensued." - nb: this was 2003-2005.

And here's what Ms Nundy says in an email to me yesterday:

Goodbye Anna Racoon. I've loved reading your excellent writing and you never failed to make me smile and importantly, think about topics I would not normally.
You will be missed. The blogosphere is a much much poorer place without you.

Hi,

Wickerman does read all too like Matt QUINN who yet again takes the lid off of the vituperative Can of worms he lives in.

Matt Quinn is an angry and inadequate little man with a record going back many years of hunting out victims to defame and attack and then relentlessly hunting them down.
A bitter failure of humanity but it seems they are omni present in some areas seeking to impress themselves in their shaving mirrors by their voyerism and the vicarious pleasure of denigrating others.

Anna's blogs on the subject of Hollie Greig where by telling the truth she fell foul of a particularly evil group of self serving perverts seeking to exploit Hollie who is now, with her Mother Anne under the protection of The high Court but as yet the authorities have not acquitted their duty of care for the public and have given free reign to Quinn, McKendrick, Milne, Barr and others who without fresh input of fact since 01-Jun-2010 have been stranded fighting like ferrets in a sack and attacking anyone who does not fall in line and agree their lunacy - as Anna Raccoon sadly found out and we are all the loser as Freedom of Speech is damaged yet agaion by semie literate bullies.

Regards,
Greg_L-W.
Anna's postings can be found in the Right Sidebar at:
http://StolenKids-Hollie.blogspot.com also ALL the documents showing fairly clearly that Hollie was never sexually abused!

Hi,

Katabasis - 'a change in circumstances'?

So it was YOU who won the £113 Million ;)

There is no joy in this situation in that we have lost Anna's great blog which I so enjoyed - however despite the vile, vicious and evil attack on her - one FACT that can be celebrated is that it shows that due to lack of evidence the only way these vile people can maintain their myth of abuse is to attack those who present FACTS and it increasingly seems Hollie Greig was never sexually abused - there just is no valid admissible evidence.

Whoever delivers the message the FACTS speak for themselves and I guess in its way that is good news.

That is not for a moment to claim that paedophelia is any less common and on that note should an offender EVER commit a second offence after his first LONG Prison Sentence I believe the death penalty should be the ONLY option as recidovism of those who kill or destroy a child's life have foregone the right to life.

Regards,
Greg_L-W.

“The investigating officer at this time, and others who have conducted further enquiry since, were all of the opinion that [X] had been the victim of penetrative sexual abuse at some point in the past…Although further enquiries were carried out, there was never a sufficiency of corroborative evidence to make prosecution of any viable person…I have now reviewed [X’s] case in some detail, and have spoken to officers concerned. The position, as far as I can determine it, is that there seems a sufficiency of evidence to accept, on the balance of probability, that [X] was sexually abused, and that this has included penetration of her private parts. Given that [X], because of her disabilities, has been closely supervised throughout her life, the perpetrator is most likely to have been someone close to her who had regular, unsupervised access.”
