Boxing Day

  •  Have you ever wondered why it’s called Boxing Day?
  • It’s because it was the day when the rich packed presents and gave them to the poor for Christmas. It was also the day when masters of rich households gave their servants a day off.
  • So, there you have it, and there was me thinking it had something to do with boxing some poor unfortunate’s ears!
  • It was tick a tick good timing for Brexit, manipulated by the Eurocrats in Brussels to coincide with their holidays.
  • I don’t know what you think, but to my ears it’s good news. To compete on our own terms against a conglomerate of nations, most of them minnows picking off our entrails can only be to our advantage. The boss nations have always benefitted more than the UK from exporting, using a poorly performing currency.
  • This may seem to be gloating if you’re in favour of the profligate free-loaders in charge of the EU but if I’m right, watch us soar.
  • I wish us all the best for the new year, so whatever your political leanings, join me in raising a glass to beating an invisible enemy invasion.
