Scottish 72 year old grandma from Edinburgh, is seeking a pardon for her grandmother. Granny, it seems was one of the last people jailed for witchcraft in the UK.
The year was 1944 when bobbies broke into a seance and threw the poor old lady into jail."They had no evidence", her granddaughter insists, "Any one could have told that the long, pointy nose was really a carrot and that ridiculous test of float or sink!It's as confusing as starve a cold ..or is it feed a cold...well ,you see what I mean."
"You wouldn't believe how mean they were to me at school when Granny was in the slammer. They called me 'Evil Eye', 'Witch-Spawn' and 'Filthy Pagan Bitch' and that was the teachers.They thought they were so smart until Granny turned them all into toads. I haven't laughed as hard since!"
