Comment by Neil Rigby on 18th November 2015 at 19:17
Catherine, I think you put a red heart symbol at the end of your comment. The web site can't display it, so it showed its code number instead.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 18th November 2015 at 19:19
It's good to see everyone happy.


Comment by Bah Humbug on 18th November 2015 at 22:22
You're absolutely right, Mick.
And then there's those runners on the sleigh, and those paper cuts from the wrapping paper on the presents can be a nasty shock. And the there's the stopping distance of the sleigh - there's nowt in't th'ighway code about stopping distance of deers at 700mph, let alone 70mph. Does Santa even have a driving licence for that thing? And then there's singing them carols - can cause all kinds of long term vocal problems if sung too loud. And that would affect kids psychologically - much worse than any physical injury, is that. And what if one kid gets and an x-box and the next a colouring book? Parents will be up in arms and arguing - could lead to public disorder. And if Santa is guilty of inciting riots he's in't slammer and that's Chrimbo over for all kids. End of.
Well spotted, Mick.
I've emailed David Cameron and the Home Office with the concerns. As a result, Police and Crime Commissioner is out of job tomorrow. The PM said not to worry too much about the elves, they won't appear on the jobless figures until December 26th and then Duncan Smith has a scheme where they will work for nowt (internship) learning health and safety - in fairness it was their fault as they should have spotted the problem well before you did. Deserve to be sacked in my option. Anyroad, they will be back next year, hopefully having learned their lesson. Maybe even Santa will be out of t'nick by then and it will only be one lost Chrimbo - good job you spotted it Mick. Top man.

Its not just the antlers that are dangerous, its also cruel to make these stags walk on the hard road surface.

They are not horses and dont have shoes like horses do.

Humbug We want a comment not a full length story'

Be careful of the sixpences in the Christmas pud Mick, so easy to choke on them.
