Have you seen the monstrosity they are passing off as a Christmas tree in one of our southern towns? http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/article6934109.ece . The idiot wing of the 'health and saftey' police have been let loose again! Apparently it has no trunk so it won't blow over, no branches to fall on shoppers and no pine needles to poke you in the eye........ Oh and the bit they forgot to mention, NO TREE! If these people had half a brain between them they could pose a real threat.
I would love to have been in the meeting at which this was described and its merits discussed, and watched as the combined wisdom and intellect homed in on what I am sure they were convinced would be a real Christmas winner. Of course the best bit will be when the TV news picks it up and the council then begins the inevitable and all too familiar 'weak defense of the indefensible'. Anyway, its brightened up my morning so it isn't all bad.
