Writer John Freeman's semi-autobiographical counterpart in The Really Heavy Greatcoat satirical comic strip. He works for his local council, and usually divulges local government secrets to Lancaster (UK) media outlets. He's fairly well left of the 1980's-90's British political center.
One day, he buys an old military greatcoat in an OxFam shop, only to discover that it is sentient and has been "alive" since at least the Napoleonic wars. It has a very different view of modern life than John. The "duo" have conversations which comment upon current affairs and popular culture.
