Plenty Of Whine At Gazunder Xmas Party

Spare a thought for the score or so of hacks and ad execs who turned up for the Isle of Thanet Gazunder's Christmas party at the No 6 brasserie in Margate's old town this lunchtime. I'm told the poor loves had to pay for the bash themselves. 'The company wouldn't even fork out for a couple of bottles of wine,' bleated one poor staffer.

This despite the fact that the Gazunder is now owned by the Daily Mail, which specialises in rabble-rousing 'Christmas to be replaced by Winterval' stories like this:

Christmas should be downgraded in favour of festivals from other religions to improve race relations, says an explosive report. Labour's favourite think-tank says that because it would be hard to 'expunge' Christmas from the national calendar, 'even-handedness' means public organisations must start giving other religions equal footing blah blah swamped by Muslims blah

Hmm. Looks like they're doing a pretty good job of downgrading Christmas themselves, if you ask me. Profit at the Daily Mail Group Northcliffe Media division last year: £33.8m.

Clearly the advertising revenue is shrinking! Poor old Thom!

Ad execs? Oh, you mean people who stick in adverts for cheap chinese protitutes and thorley taverns?

A bigger contradiction of Northcliffe is that while the Daily Mail supports the Womens Institute's efforts to nag local papers to stop having adverts for 'opressed' prostitutes from overseas, a considerable part of it's Northcliffe's revenue comes from sex ads.

Basically if it wasn't for whores advertising in the Thanet Times, poor old Thomas Morris would be 7 stone or working for something much worse like Your Fannit or the other crap one whose name escapes me momentarily.

Well I had my Christmas Dinner paid for last night... and with a few drinks. Can't complain.

You would have thought their inflation busting rise from 55p to 60p a few weeks ago would have paid for a couple of bottles of wine at least.

Clearly you were having a sad and lonely night there, 9:04pm.
