    Here's a cheerful "Christmassy" read for one and all. It's about that Marmite of a film 'Love Actually' and much like Marmite, I'm very much in the 'definitely not, it's shite' school of thought. There are, of course, plenty who like both but the author here is not just talking about the film itself but Englishness and Brexit. So something for everyone to get their Santa-adorned knickers in a twist about it.

    I think the author of that article is over-thinking things a bit tbh

    He clearly has an axe to grind but I did enjoy the sentiment.

    If I read this article will it alter my opinion of absolutely hating Love Actually?
    If so I don't think I'm prepared to read it.

    My wife and daughter have planned to watch the entire box set of Downton Abbey over Christmas. I'm looking for a one way flight to Switzerland for Dignitas.

    It will reinforce your current opinion and was 100% what got me hooked into the article in the first place.
