First of all, I don't want to sound like I am just defending Gillan. I agree these lyrics are in poor taste, but this is what Gillan claims Sacre Bleu is about, and I'm assuming Not Weird Enough as well. At one point, Ian was really close with some members of a police department in the UK. At one point a bunch of news reporters were at the police station when a woman came in claiming she had been raped. The reporters were outraged at how rude the officers were to this woman and how they didn't believe her. The officer in charge of this case was fired for all the bad media attention that it brought to the department. What the press failed to realize was that this woman was a hooker, and when ever she didn't get paid or didn't like her "client" she would claim she was raped. This police officers disbelief of this woman was due to the fact that she came to the station once a week claiming she had been raped. In particular, Sacre Blue is in defense of police who get a bad reputation, and a man "accused of a bad case of rape".
