Bollocks to Christmas!

It’s a Christmas cheer to you all and thank God it’s out the way! I hate Christmas but there we are. My wife goes potty about it but we all have to put up with the Xmas cheers of it all – well, I don’t mind Christmas but don’t tell anybody that!

I wonder if the next year will be as changeable and chaotic as this year? What will happen to the education, the NHS, Social Services etc and not to mention that biggy, Brexit? Heaven knows. I’ll be sitting in my armchair and ever so hopeful with a glass of whisky letting it all pass me by in a drunken slur – not if my wife is around but I’ll try anyway!

More seriously, it comes down to being British. Despite all the nonsense that goes on, it seems to me that you’re extremely lucky to be born here. The great British Isles. We have so many faults but when you add it all up it’s not a country that I am ashamed of. We are the oldest Parliament in history and a democratic one. Compassion has ruled our waves, kindness is the order of the day and not many countries can say this.

We like to rule ourselves, without any interference from another country.

We are British.

All of us should celebrate our antecedents. All of us. Black, brown and white. We should all remember the good and the bad and possibly came out of it all with a reasonable feeling that it’s good to be British and stand alone.

All I can say is be merry (and don’t pop too many corks!), be kind to your neighbour and spread that happiness around to all in sundry. To hell with what’s on the TV and newspapers, ignore it. Stand up, grip your friend and be counted, it’s all we have left.

We are all British and don’t you forget it!
