Here is another post Christmas Nanny story that I never got round to mentioning in the run up to Christmas.
It seems that the Nanny element of British Transport Police took control of the PR department in the festive season, and banned the use of the "Christmas" from a national publicity poster.
They were worried it might upset people who do not "buy into" the festival (whatever that means).
"Holiday" was substituted for "Christmas".
1 I am not offended when people wish me a "Happy XXX (substitute religious festival of your choice)", just as others are not offended by the use of the word "Christmas".
2 "Holiday" in itself could well piss many off, a large section of the community does actually work on Christmas Day (eg the health service, fire service, police, TV, power supply etc...not of course politicians nor railways!).
PS Our decorations finally will come down this Sunday (midway split between Swedish/British tradition), one of our trees is looking decidedly droopy.
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.
Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.
Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
