Some people have really shitty Christmases and a long, long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, so did I.  In light of this tinsel-less fact, here’s a metaficion of mine in which I stick three heads up my own fictional arse. Contains a seasonal sprinkling of sprouts.

As Shakin’ Stevens would say – ‘Merry Christmas – everyone.’

Coventry is the home of 2-Tone. Which gives me an excuse to play a track by The Specials. Not that I need an excuse, mind.

Put your braces together and your boots on your feet
And give me some of that old moonstomping

Skanking it easy, Skanking it good.”
