    Blinking PC council say we can't have a "real" tree 'cos it might fall on someone so we end up with a crappy green "cone" :

    As a local resident I offer my humblest apologies to anyone visiting the town over the Xmas season :(

    When I lived in the US, I worked for a company that was super politically correct to the point of not allowing a Christmas tree because it might offend non-Christians. It caused such an uproar that the following year, we had one, but it had to be called a "Holiday Tree" and couldn't have any obviously Christian decorations. Nothing beats a bit of political correctness / health and safety to ruin the Holiday season.
