Bit of a bitch, isn’t it?November 24, 2016 Tim Worstallblogs15 CommentsIt would appear that Anna Raccoon has reached the end…. Vale, eh? previousHe’s lying againnextThey were Ugandan negotiations, honest! 15 thoughts on “Bit of a bitch, isn’t it?” Ben S November 24, 2016 at 8:14 am Software glitch, I suspect. Yesterday she said it was her last post, but that the blog wasn’t set to self-destruct until the end of January. The doctor had given her not-great news (again), and she’s intending to spend her last days peacefully, rather than swatting internet commenters. Ben S November 24, 2016 at 8:15 am Oh, it’s back up again, first time I tried I got a database error. JuliaM November 24, 2016 at 9:00 am It would be nice if the identity-stealing troll would show a spark of human decency for her final post… 🙁 Henry Crun November 24, 2016 at 9:04 am I doubt there has been none braver than Ms Raccoon when it comes to shining a light into some very dark places. Ben S November 24, 2016 at 9:32 am @Henry, yes, the blend of erudition, wit, hard work and sheer bloody-minded persistence is one-of-a-kind. Will be sorely missed, and probably not get the obits she deserves. To any latecomers, you should really go over and have a binge-read before it’s too late. Anyone care to suggest the best post to start with? Tim Newman November 24, 2016 at 9:33 am I gave up on the one regarding her treatment at the hands of the NHS. It was way too depressing. Bloke in North Dorset November 24, 2016 at 9:36 am I met her in a pub in Londona about 10 years ago. She’s great company and has a very sharp mind. The world will be a poorer place without her. Bloke in North Dorset November 24, 2016 at 9:48 am I don’t know about her best post but, she caused me some initial grief but in the end saved me from a lot more when she effectively killed LPUK. It’s a long post but she had personal dealings with Andrew Withers who had engineered himself to be leader of LPUK, and he turned out to be a Walter Mitty type of character. He chose the wrong person to cross. http://annaraccoon.com/2011/04/14/libertarian-liberties/ MyBurningEars November 24, 2016 at 10:25 am What a bugger. Lots of very interesting material there, including in the comments, as well as original documents she fished up. Lots of people blog effectively as a place to spout opinions, however well thought out. This is one of the few blogs that was effectively original-research journalism. Bloke in Wales November 24, 2016 at 10:57 am How about when she organised a whip-round to get a pro-liberty pub landlord out of prison? http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/landlord-who-defied-smoking-ban-884965 Original links are: http://annaraccoon.com/2010/02/28/nick-hogan-jailed-over-no-smoking-ban/ and http://annaraccoon.com/2010/03/10/exclusive-nick-hogan-without-those-walls/ (Wonder if that lefty twat Dont Hug Me would consider that a positive?) The Meissen Bison November 24, 2016 at 11:04 am I won a little Raccoon from her in a limerick competition and it sits above my monitor where it occasionally gets used to sweep the dust from the screen. John Galt November 24, 2016 at 11:26 am She’ll be missed. Tough old bird is Anna. Cancer takes no prisoners though. Van_Patten November 24, 2016 at 3:03 pm Sad news – a terrible loss to lovers of freedom everywhere. She deserves to spend her remaining days at peace – unlike the various Stalinist pygmies she will not be forgotten… NielsR November 24, 2016 at 5:27 pm Well doesn’t that just put the tin lid on 2016. An amazing woman, I’m glad her blog audience consistently rose to meet her hopes and expectations. David Moore November 24, 2016 at 8:48 pm Sad indeed, I only recently discovered her blog and see seem a truly impressive woman. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
