York shop bans cheesy Christmas music for sake of staff

I think it was this time last year I was ranting about Slade’s Christmas hit, and how I found it terminally depressing as it paraded itself across our ears for (what? The next seven weeks?) – seems I wasn’t alone.

Brexit, again . . .

So, yeah . . . 46 million eligabe to vote in the UK, of which 17.5 million said “leave the EU”. (Actually one third of the electorate).

So the rest either didn’t vote, or voted “stay”.

And the majority of the leave voters based their decision on pub talk, on the lies and filth pedalled by The Daily Mail, and chats with their mates in the van.

Not quite the informed and considered decision that was needed really.
