All I want for Christmas is Family

Boris Johnson , the U.K. Prime Minister, (also known as the Clown 🤡) has put most of the U.K. into lockdown for Christmas just 3 days after declaring that there was no way that was going to happen and the promised 5 day break would happen over Christmas. People bought turkey, presents, train tickets and made plans to see the family bubble. Only for him to declare at 4pm on Saturday 19th December that London and the South East would enter a newly created Tier 4 level of lockdown.

Cue chaos as people tried to leave London to return to families before the midnight lockdown. The main station out of London to the north of the U.K. is St Pancras and it was crowded with people ramming into the only available trains out of London before the travel ban took effect. Definitely a super spreader event if there ever was one.

The sheer idiocy of the U.K. PM is breathtakingly stupid. He doesn’t appear to listen to anyone, at all. The scientists have had misgivings about his plans for weeks , yet he still ploughed ahead and reassured everyone and told us all to be “jolly careful”. Not only will this move cost people financially and emotionally it could also cost lives. How is this man still Prime Minister?! Oh yes, of course we know, that poison chalice of a Brexit trade deal (or no deal) still has to land in his lap before the spineless Tories knife him the back and oust him in favour of a more voter friendly candidate. Well people have very long memories and starving innocent children for the sake of political ideology ain’t going to wash in the next election. Nor is cancelling Christmas at short notice because the PM didn’t want to be unpopular and enforce a second national lockdown. Well that ship has sailed a long time ago BoJo. The Tory party is about to discover what stormy seas really are.

I am so annoyed at the lack of planning and forethought by the PM. People living on their own need to see family at Christmas to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the world. It will be lonely and cold this Christmas for so many without family.

I wrote some alternate lyrics for Mariah Carey’s famous Christmas song: All I want for Christmas is You. Enjoy – I hope it spreads a little Christmas joy or at least a wry smile. Happy Christmas from me. And remember even a storm runs out of rain eventually. We just need to weather the storm.

Here are my alternate lyrics:

We don’t want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing We need

We don’t care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

We just want that clown to go

More than you could ever know

Make our wish come true

All We want for Christmas isn’t true blue!

We don’t want a lot for Christmas

There is just one thing We need

And We don’t care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

We don’t need to hang our stockings

There upon the fireplace

Santa Claus won’t make us happy

With a toy on Christmas Day

We just want families to be together

After a year of hardship and dismay

Make our wish come true

All We want for Christmas isn’t true blue

Oh, We won’t ask for much this Christmas

We won’t even wish for snow

And We’re just gonna keep on waiting

Underneath the mistletoe

We won’t make a list and send it

To the North Pole for Saint Nick

We won’t even stay awake to

Hear those magic reindeer click

‘Cause We just want family here tonight

Holding on to hope so tight

What more can We do?

PM, all I want for Christmas is family

Family

Oh, all the lights are shining so brightly everywhere

And the sound of children’s laughter fills the air

And everyone isn’t singing

We hear those sleigh bells ringing

Santa, won’t you bring family We really need?

Won’t you please bring family to me?

Oh, We don’t want a lot for Christmas

This is all We’re asking for

We just wanna see family

Standing right outside our door

Oh, We just want family to come home

More than you could ever know

Make our wish come true

PM, all We want for Christmas… is family

Family

All I want for Christmas is family

All I want for Christmas is family

All I want for Christmas is family

All I want for Christmas is family

All I want for Christmas is family
