  8. Psi: A little Christmas prezzie for you,
    Twas some time in the morning when the gas man came to call.

      The Gas Man Cometh

    Written,( and originally performed), by Michael Flanders and Donald Swann.

    'Twas on a Monday morning the gasman came to call.
    The gas tap wouldn't turn - I wasn't getting gas at all.
    He tore out all the skirting boards to try and find the main
    And I had to call a carpenter to put them back again.
    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
    'Twas on a Tuesday morning the carpenter came round.
    He hammered and he chiselled and he said:
    "Look what I've found: your joists are full of dry rot
    But I'll put them all to rights".
    Then he nailed right through a cable and out went all the lights!
    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
    'Twas on a Wednesday morning the electrician came.
    He called me Mr. Sanderson, which isn't quite the name.
    He couldn't reach the fuse box without standing on the bin
    And his foot went through a window so I called the glazier in.
    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
    'Twas on a Thursday morning the glazier came round
    With his blowtorch and his putty and his merry glazier's song.
    He put another pane in - it took no time at all
    But I had to get a painter in to come and paint the wall.
    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
    'Twas on a Friday morning the painter made a start.
    With undercoats and overcoats he painted every part:
    Every nook and every cranny - but I found when he was gone
    He'd painted over the gas tap and I couldn't turn it on!
    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.
    On Saturday and Sunday they do no work at all; ( it is Christmas after all)
    So 'twas on a Monday morning that the gasman came to call...
  9. To King Boris & his Court,
    Merry Christmas to you all and may 2006 be the most splendid, prosperous, exciting and peaceful year to date for all of you.

  10. Greetings all and best wishes!


    I’ve been to your website – I suspect you could be the lead in the hairstyles trio, the other two being Comrade Johnson and St. Bob.

  11. And what a lovely christmas present from our esteemed government: As of sunday, ALL offences will be arrestable (rather than just the ones that carry a 5 year sentance).

    Sadly, this means i will have to cross them off my christmas card list.

    I feel sorry for the poor already-overstretched court and prison services who will have to enforce the new police state.

    As i have no intention of funding such an abomination, i vow to pay no more taxes as my new years resolution. If the government is just going to abuse me for paying them, i may as well cost them money instead.

    Boris, i’ll see you when they lock you up for not having your ID card (or eating it, whichever). (an arrestable offence now)

  12. There is a ready answer to that one Psi: If you don’t do the crime ; you won’t do the time.( In theory , anyway).

  13. Mac: As saying the word “nonsense” can get you arrested under anti-terrorism laws, i worry about your “ready answer”.

    If you see what i mean.

    Anyhow, back on topic: I wish you all a happy new year!



  14. Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, nonaddictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practised within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.

    I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make Britain great (not to imply that Britain is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only “Britain” in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishee.

    By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms:

    This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.

    This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher…
