the Ghost of Christmas Present haunts the land
The British Government is tying itself in knots over what to do about their conflicting views on the coronavirus and Christmas. On the one hand are the doom and gloom merchants who would prefer that Christmas was cancelled this year, or moved to midsummer day, or just done away with altogether. Chief of these Scrooges is an unattractive drone called Chris Whitty, who has this witty catchphrase for his idea of a proper Christmas; ‘keep it small, keep it short, keep it local…..’ What a charmless, overpaid wazzock that person is.
People of his ilk have obviously got to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, because his latest soundbite is; ‘Have yourself a merry little Christmas. And this year sadly I do mean little…..’ At least he has promised that he would not be cancelling Christmas. Whereas in the People’s Democratic Government of Wales, anyone having a good time will most likely get arrested.
Actually, it doesn’t matter what anyone in the government says because a hell of a lot of people will just ignore the official ‘advice’ and get on with their own Christmas as best they can.
Unfortunately my Christmas plans have been totally canned, since British Airways stopped me from going to Cancun. I’ll be alone again over the holidays.
I hope nobody gives an order to stop Christmas shooting down Santa
