We apparently should be saying Happy Holidays instead of Happy Christmas as we are now living in a multi cultural country even though other cultures are not complaining.... Will stick with the radio from now on.
    Yup Legislators in the EU introduced legislation to ban the use of the word Christmas in case it offends peoples of a different faith, it has quickly backfired and been withdrawn, the author and head of committee of this nonsense was of course of so called ethnic minority no doubt on a self proclaimed hidden (or not so hidden) agenda. However she misjudged that most of the EU is still mostly Christian and Italy, Spain, France and others made their feelings known.

    I see that M & S have introduced a Christmas card with the words 'Happy Piggymas' it would seem that they have lost the idea of what Christmas is all about; I wonder will they be brave enough to introduce one with the words 'Happy Piggydam' later in the year

    hi marian #230
    good afternoon, the sentence which is often quoted by the liberal left ( we are a multicultured society ) is a complete fabrication, as the total population of immigrants into this country is listed as fourteen percent, that is upto 15 45 today

    hi ivan cloherty,#231
    good afternoon, once again you are correct, But M&S like all big business is vertue signaling and being woke is the right on, strict or de rigueur way to be seen or go.

    Marian, the easy way to deal with that one is to say
    'Complaints of the season to you'

    For the greater majority of people here in Oz is a great time, just about all religions share in it.
    We are here a multi cultural nation, not sure about percentages but would estimate about 15% are inputs.

    But the majority do mix in, have a number of friends of different cultures and religions, Greek Orthadox, Latter Day Saints, Baptist, and one of them who do the a*** up in the air bit, and two lesbefriends and one gay.

    None compare or complain about the other, they al get along fine.

    The main problem is with the very small minority who think there is a problem when there is none.

    They are so biased as to make up problems that do not exist.

    That bloody storm of yester day is coming back again.
