It wouldn't be Christmas without mention of at least one item of Scrooge-like proportions. This, courtesy of Andrew Stuttaford at The Corner:
Regular readers of the Corner will remember that, in a gesture of unusually crass political correctness, the British Red Cross banned Nativity scenes from its shop windows. The organization is now paying the price. The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Red Cross is “facing a sharp drop in donations.”
And I thought that kind of nonsense only took place on this side of the Atlantic. Sort of makes my Christmas a little merrier.
