The Turkey without the Turkey

So the British government is debating whether Christianity is being actively discriminated against. That's the horse just cresting that mountain in the distance, and if you're wondering where the stable door is, it's just where you left it a century ago, methinks.

But what a valiant defender. The turkey without the stuffing indeed. And a utilitarian argument about right-wing parties. Can't buy Christmas cards and advent calendars. Oh dear. Next they'll ban Christmas presents! I suppose at least there's always one of those quaint old stone churches you could visit...

And the secularist! Over-represented in public life, he says. Perhaps he should form a right-wing party of his own - it's easier to get the right Christmas cards!

Harrumph. Bah humbug.
