I was told...

that "it's not allowed" to sing Christmas carols in public any more. This is complete rubbish. I've been leading traditional carol-singing groups in public places  this past week, including a great London railway station, and it's all been splendid. Official support, plenty of enthusiasm, lots of goodwill - and we've raised funds for charity. And, yes, at the railway station we were a church group, and  got our official badge from the railway authorities just as we have always done.

"Once in Royal David's City" "Away in a Manger" "Hark the Herald angels" "Adeste Fideles" "Silent Night "The First Nowell" "While Shepherds watched"...the lot. And more.

So can we please stop this ghastly apparent determination to drive Britain onto some sort of ideological slavery?

If anyone tries to stop you singing Christmas carols, this is your Edelweiss moment. Sing out loud and clear, and invite everyone to join in..
