A Message From Santa Claus

Popped into the local alehouse for a stiffener before I started my duties to bring cheer to the poor and needy, but what I beheld shocked me to the core....

It was full of knotted scarfed middle class twats with their snotty nosed Tabithas and Thoms saying "I`ll take three hot chocolates and two mulled wines " while playing with their sodding smart phones and then sitting infront of the real log  fire so no one else can see or feel it.

And then they insist " A Fairy Tale Of New York" is the BEST Christmas song ever;


.Ho! Ho! Ho! 

Saint Nicholas 

As I told you before the Best Chistmas song is

Belshazzar`s Feast  Hampshire Mummers Song

Happy Christmas  Jules

Advent Calender 13

Rain On Rain

Bloody hell last night was a little bit wet. At least it was not snow.

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;

Best carol ever

In The Bleak Midwinter

In The Bleak Midwinter

Bert Jansch In The Bleak Midwinter

Ed Harcourt In The Bleak Midwinter 

And for some sunnier Christmas cheer (Ok its very emotional) 

Tim Minchin  White Wine In The Sun

Someone To Watch Over Me

Hells teeth, even the paper that told us to to vote Liberal to keep the Tories out ( when its not doing stories about "The Media" ) seems to be a tad pissed off  with this shower.

William Elliott Whitmore Mutiny

This is  something else by him

 And this a bit of something else by Turner

Thanks to a very lovely and smart chap ( as well as a Grauniad reader ) who pointed out the Steve Bell cartoon while listening to the William Elliott Whitmore number.

Cheers Gee
