Happy Christmas to all readers

There will be no new posting tomorrow, Christmas day. I have a turkey to cook and a good wine to drink.
Normal service will resume on Boxing Day for those who are not rushing off to the sales, and for all who have already broken or consumed their Christmas presents.

A happy Christmas to you all. Thanks for all your comments. It’s good to know there are so many strivers after the truth in this world of spin.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, and thanks for an excellent blog.

    (If you are wondering, I have been banished to my cubby hole so this missus can wrap my presents)

    Merry Christmas.

    Just a thought at this festive time of year –

    Having seen the news that Zavvi is going into administration Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling must be very pleased with themselves.

    MFI, DFS, Woolworths, Zavvi, Whittards, The Officers Club to name but a few – they’ve all benefiited from Superman’s efforts to save the world.

    The 2.5% reduction in VAT has been just the ticket for these retailers. This must be the thin end of the wedge and but a small taste of the increasing success of the Brown rescue package.

    They really must swallow their pride and think again before it’s too late.

    And to you Mr Redwood. Here in Beijing it’s largely the good old pagan festival of midwinter!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mr Redwood, and thank you for your blog from which I’ve understood a great deal more than I otherwise would have done.
