Well the wonders of social media, here daily to help recirculate stuff that's been around since the dawn of time and make it seem like it's something brand new and exclusive.
Well, here's a prime example. I noticed a fair few people posting and "sharing" this newspaper headline, "Christmas Is Banned: It Offends Muslims" on Facebook earlier...

Just a quick grumble... now to some this may come as a bit of a surprise, but I do actually have a TV License - well The Mother pays for it, so we're covered - even though I do think it is a bit of a stupid idea (especially now we're in the digital age of TV [Don't pay TV License, then why not block the BBC channels?
