...And a Merry ChrIstmas to you too!

What a sad letter in the local paper today. Previous correspondents have talked about a Mr Cosham of Wadhurst who for some years has festooned his house with Christmas lights. This year, it seems, he has received anonymous letters threatening him if he puts the lights up again.

Today's writer now suggests that whilst these letters are "cowardly", they go on to talk about "making every effort to cut carbon emissions and reduce global warming" and suggest that "this is one area where we could all save electricity". They suggest that "whilst they look pretty, they aren't really necessary".

Neither are lights on the tree, the power we use to cook the turkey, or the fuel we use to visit family and friends over the festive period.

These 'green extremists' seem very generous with their advice. Cut carbon emissions? Why not just cut Christmas...
