      If it’s one thing I can’t stand, it is Christmas cards that are not Christmas cards but are all about the sender.

        Oh, amen to that – especially if they have a ’round robin’ review of the year attached.

        Perhaps we could amuse ourselves on here dreaming up what Ed’n’Justine might say…

          Ed writes -

          “Been a tough year for me, but Justine has made out like a bandit being absolutely crap at defending the defenceless.

          Notable ‘fees for failure’ were unsuccessfully defending those four guys who naughtily exported 450 tonnes of dangerous old fridges, computers and televisions to Nigeria and also that rough diamond, Felix Doran was unfairly turfed off his Travellers site in leafy Bedfordshire – The Only Way Is Essex – ha ha.

          Of course not having me on the deeds of Thornton Towers (despite helping out with the mortgage) saves a bundle as well.

          This time next year we’ll all be milwyonaires – oh silly me – we are already – ha ha – Chag Samech”

        Yes, let’s all send gurning portraits of *ourselves* – after all, that’s what Christmas is all about!

        ‘It started in America’

          Loopy Lou says:

          What started in America ?

          Christmas or gurning ?

          • Cicero says:

            Gurning is a Cumbrian invention.

            Santa Claus’ modern image was, indeed, invented in the USA.

            As was sending out smug photos and self-congratulatory chronicles of oneself and one’s tedious doings to all and sundry.

        My muzzie mate sends me a Xmas card. Mind you he’s just about the only muslim living on the Wirral outside of Birkenhead. Case of do as they do I think.

        • 94
          Airey Belvoir says:

          I once had a nice card from an Iranian Gov’t official saying ‘Congratulations on the birth of your Prophet.’ With all the anti-Muslim sentiment around (much of it understandable) it is worth remembering that Jesus Christ is recognised in the Muslim faith as a holy man, which is probably quite accurate.

    Some Twat up North says:

    Ed Milliband, a man of our time…

    Now, if he’d been born a 100 years ago his parents would have done the decent thing and kept him in the loft.

    Sometimes you just know the old ways are the best.

    • 57
      I Remember You Hoo says:

      Possibly a family with some sense of decency, may have. However it is the Miliband clan of commies and backstabbing traitors, we are dealing with here. So doing the decent thing, is not an option.

    Inheritance tax avoider laughing at the taxpayer whilst enjoying the family home his communist father used perfectly legal means to avoid Ed & Dave paying IHT.

    One rule for the little people, one rule for the North London Duma & Politburo.

    Disgusting hypocrit.

      Banned says:

      Are Deeds of Variation still legal? That nifty legal tax avoidance has given Ed and David a substantial leg up and stake in their growing London property portfolios.

      Nice to have all that money and property and not actually work for a living. Ever.

      • 47
        Stan says:

        Still legal – Labour wanted to get rid until they realised how many of their number were using it to avoid IHT on property.

    • 56
      Mr Quelch says:

      You need to look up the meaning of “begging the question”.
      It doesn’t mean “inviting the question”.

      • 73
        Terrible But True says:

        Oops.

        What does it mean, as I presume you’d tell me if you knew?

        But the correction is noted, and of value to refocus on the question.

        Interestingly, only t’other day I learned ‘grammar nazi’ actually meant ‘person keen to distract from point by pointing out minor errors in English usage’.

        One is sure that was not your intention.

    To add to this ( at this point put on a Texan accent ) :-

    “Holdin down two jobs”, “vacation” , “City Hall”, “Police Commissioner”, “Welfare Programmes”, “Housing projects”, “Going on a Date”.

    Do you think they include one of those awful round robin showing off letters?

    Ed has had another challenging year, but is perservering. Justine has been raking it in thanks to her ‘connections’, the boys are working hard towards their Oxbridge exams and can do a rubik cube in 12 seconds…………

      Lambeth Palace explains why churches are empty says:

      I am afraid that we try not to make too much of Christmas as this may offend other religions. Christianity is just another religion on par with all other religions and we do not ascribe to the view that the United Kingdom is a predominantly a Christian country and thus it should be therefore given precedence over any other faith. WE do OUR best to celebrate in a non-controversial manner without giving offence and we encourage others to do the same. Happy Wintervale to you all

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
