Happy Christmas!

Recommended Posts

Merry Christmas to you too, I didn't realise Aeroflot had 787s.  The Russians really don't want to piss off Trump too much as he could stop the support coming over for what is still a very new aircraft.

I am afraid that it will not be a Happy Christmas for people south of London this year, particularly those near to Gatwick Airport.  The officials around there are still not able to determine what is a drone and what Santa and his sleigh look like.  This has resulted in a total ban of either of the said flying anywhere near to Gatwick as passengers still remain severely ticked off at recent disruptions. 

Of course, the RAF or other military units cannot use anything that may potentially cause any harm to Rudolf and the other reindeer, for fear of being accused of cruelty to animals.  Trying to jam drones may also disrupt the sensitive inbuilt navigation elements built into flying reindeer, so trying to use this may result in a flurry of crashing reindeer and a massive loss of presents.  Of course, such a loss of valuable items would potentially result in a massive lawsuit from Santa, which the UK Government can ill afford at this time.  Also, there is the potential for the parents of disappointed children to sue for emotional stress caused by the loss of the said gifts.

The RAF were alleged to support this ban, as it would save the reindeer a bit of effort by saving a few air miles and having to pull a somewhat overweight man dressed in a silly red suit, around south London.  This has been counter argued by Santa supporters who said that if locals feed the reindeer flatulence inducing food, Santa could strike a match near to their.....um...bottom....it could have the same effect as an afterburner on a jet powered plane and help things move along.


At this time, it still looks as though people south of London are in for  grim Christmas......

It's the same here in our town, the local bus station has just been closed due to a suspected drone flying 3 miles away, Eyewitness's said they also heard a jingling sound. 

Chief Supt Noel Clueless of West Sussex Police was looking at faces in the crowd to see who he could arrest.  So he decided to arrest 4 year old Tommy Tutut and have carted him off to the Police Station with his mum telling the plods that he did not do it as he was in playschool until 3:30, But they chose to ignore that alibi.  A broken sleigh bell was found by a pedestrian and the Police are hoping to recover it later after locking Tommy Tutut up first...

"Merry Christmas all"
