Horrible time of the year...artificial jollity rammed down our throats by the media who think we all gather together, sing carols and have a wonderful time.Like the overpaid so called celebrities on their Chrimbo 'specials'.

It's ok for MPs and top civil servants they're all in Barbados.

Most of our lot are in this crap country in the cold and dark and wondering if we can afford to put the heating on.And looking forward to the tax rises in the new year....HO! HO! HO!

So you will not be joining the rector and congregation tonight then for a bit carol singing around the Wollaton pump ? Its very popular they even close the roads !!

Come on Pooh join in

Ding dong! merrily on high

In heav'n the bells are ringing:

Ding dong! verily the sky

Is riv'n with Angel singing.

Gloria,

Hosanna in excelsis!

Gloria,

Hosanna in excelsis!

E'en so here below, below,

Let steeple bells be swungen,

And "Io, io, io!"

By priest and people sungen.

Pray you, dutifully prime

Your matin chime, ye ringers;

May you beautifully rime

Your evetime song, ye singers.

That's in days before the world of backhanders, bungs, dishonesty, freeloaders, hustlers, greed, avarice, incompetence, and downright criminality. Never to return I'm afraid Lizzie !
