Badger Police

I sometimes despair of police-speak. A man was fatally stabbed at a party in Bedfordshire and the police said: “We are treating the death as suspicious.” How else would they be treating it, for God’s sake? 

It’s a pity that the only film roles for badgers are in films about Narnia and Tales of the Riverbank. You never see them in soaps, which may be due to the dark forces of speciesism being at work.

  1. I remember a few years ago in Scotland where a man's body was discovered some yards away from his head. The police announced on that occasion that they were treating the incident as suspicious.

    A belated happy New Year to you.
