"Free Christmas parking at Wareham and Corfe Castle"
(Bournemouth Echo 23 November)
Meanwhile the spirit of Scrooge lives on in Swanage town hall. Last year the least used car parks were free for a few days.
Why not go the whole hog and have a Swanage Humbug festival, ban decorations, trees etc and have a big week long party for all the people who can't stand christmas. Strike a blow against the commercial infantalisation of our lives. Christians would rejoice as this would be the one place where it was a religious festival rather than the feast of shopping, as its know in the god trade. Humanists, sceptics etc would fill our guest accommodation to get away from the xmas horrors everywhere else and of course kids would get even more presents as the money was not going on useless rubbish quite as much as usual. Result everybody wins except the chinese manufacturers of baubles, flashing lights and plastic fir trees.
