I wouldn't normally wish to strike a sour note during the festive season, but in this case I'm prepared to make an exception.
Earlier today, I had the misfortune to read Liberal Democrat MP Lembit Opik's views on Christmas. One sample will suffice: "To those Yuletide Refuseniks who say "Nuts to the Yuletide," I say "hey there, someone needs a hug!"."
Pass the sickbag.
Compared with a Christmas spent with Lembit and his compulsory fun, an eternity trapped with a Butlin's redcoat would seem like an attractive option.
And a Merry Christmas to you, too.
