I AM NOT THE GRINCH BUT…..
A few things I would encourage people to think about as we approach Christmas.
Trees are better left outside. They look better outdoors. They want to be outdoors. They are doing more good for carbon capture and air quality when outdoors.
Don't buy Christmas crackers. Nobody enjoys them. They are a complete waste of time, money and energy. The little bits of plastic that fall out of them all end up in the stomaches of turtles.
Don't complain about repeats on the TV. Just don't watch them. If you can't think of anything better to do, the fault lies with you.
Don't buy masses of extra food. You will end up throwing much of it away. There is a good chance that friends and relatives won't descend on your home this year anyway. If they do, having a little less to eat is unlikely to do much harm given that obesity and overweight figures are running so high.
As Boris says "…..Have a Jolly (Careful) Christmas".

Another blow to the Conservatives hopes of privatising the Health & Leisure Centres. Of course, the Conservatives have never asked the public what they think about handing over the management of the Health & Leisure Centres. When they set up a Liaison panel of users to look at the issue, the members of the users…
