jingle bells … ho-ho-ho and merry christmas

One of my very favorites in Brit press is this guy. And not just cos he’s very conservative either.
He’s just plain darn good at everything he does and writes.
So Cheers to Littlejohn for the smiles and to BMEWS too ....

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells… chaos all the way

By Richard Littlejohn

There’s nothing like a good old sing-song to raise the spirits in difficult times such as these. With that in mind, I thought I should update some classic holiday hits to reflect the widespread travel disruption which has caused so much mayhem over the past few days.

If you’re stuck on a train, or marooned at the airport, feel free to sing along.


WALKING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND

The phones ring
No one’s listening
All the staff
Have gone missing
Check the website
You won’t get a flight
Stranded in the Heathrow hinterland.

Locked away
Are the gritters
Read about it
On Twitter
It’s nobody’s fault
We ran out of salt
Stranded in a Winter Blunderland.

Snowfall came
Without warning
You could blame
Global warming
But nobody cares
About the polar bears
When they’re stranded in a Winter Blunderland.

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus’s sled has broken down

He planned to come by reindeer
But Rudolph had a crash
Now his sleigh’s been grounded
By a cloud of volcanic ash.

So he plotted his route

He checked it out twice

But he didn’t spot

That sheet of black ice.

Santa Claus’s sled has broken down

Santa Claus’s sled has broken down

Santa Claus’s sled has broken down

Santa Claus’s sled has broken down.

I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS

I’m dreading another White Christmas,

Just like we’ve had the past three years,

When the snow starts falling

The response is appalling

And your best-laid plans will end in tears.

I’m dreading another White Christmas,

Next year I’m going to Sandy Lane,

That’s weather permitting,

If they remember the gritting,

At Gatwick, and de-ice the plane.

You get the idea and for a bit more .............GO HERE

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
