The Sun has backed off on their Save Our Christmas campaign. Perhaps Ben was right and the whole thing was meant to occupy minds that otherwise would dwell on the Blunkett affair. Or perhaps they’re simply running out of ammunition. The best they can manage today is vandals who cut down a Christmas tree and some schoolchildren who have been banned from wearing tinsel around their neck. Instead, they’re using a lot of space demonising Kimberly Quinn/Fortier (there’s a large ‘Fatal Attraction’ centre-spread, casting her as a “wicked witch” out to destroy his career) and laying the grounds for Blunkett’s triumphant return.

Then again, this link from Peter suggests that this is a seasonal – and global – event designed to use Christianity’s greatest PR asset to demonise the left:

Metafilter – Annual airing of grievances

Then-then again-again, it could be both. Rebekah Wade isn’t beyond multi-tasking in her role as Willing Servant of Evil.

    My mother works at the school where they banned kids wearing tinsel.It was because they were throwing about a star from the top of a Christmas tree and it hit one kid in the eye.So the school, needing to at least seem like they were doing something responsible, banned all decoration type stuff.Of course, if they hadn’t banned it, it wouldn’t be beyond the Sun to report about how schools no longer care about our kids or something.

    No doubt the students who threw the star are part of a massive leftist-ninja conspiracy.
