> Warms the cockles of your heart doesn’t it?

"James Browne, 40, who has made an annual pilgrimage to the Harrods grotto since his 15-year-old son, Toby, was a baby, said: “Harrods is behaving like the Grinch who stole Christmas. They have lost the true meaning of Christmas and given into the commercialisation of the season."

In all honesty I don't think I could care any less. Madness.

"He said the store, which introduced a free grotto in 1955, has turned the charitable nature of Father Christmas into a money-making venture"

The bastards. I mean, no-one else in the entire world has turned Christmas into a money-making venture... Oh, wait...

Still feels a bit early to be posting this, but here's an informative little semi-factual film about the true meaning of Christmas.  (Which is - spoiler alert - "When you're taking over the world don't crush the culture that came before, absorb it.")  It's funny because it's mostly true.

It’s about time that Father Christmas was nationalised

Has the whinging paper nothing better to whinge about today? Life in UK must be tidy if that is all they have.

Absolutely, but I couldn't give a t*** about who is allowed to christmas shop at Harrods. Not should the guardian, but it so can't resist a good whinge. 

Guardian newspaper, twinned with the Daily Mail.

Newspaper that purports to represent a fairer world reports that a very elite shop is stopping something for people that aren't quite elite enough.
