A caring, sharing Christmas

Have I missed something or are there very few Christmas messages from politicians this year? It may be that this has always been the case but a quick trawl of the main party sites finds only one, a standard text from Conservative Party Chair, Francis Maude, wishing all Christians and Jews a merry Christmas and a happy Hanukah. Mr. Maude uses his message to promote the new respect agenda being promoted by David Cameron:

"however different our customs and beliefs we share at the same time a duty of mutual respect and responsibility - Christmas and Hanukah remind us again to celebrate those best aspects of our individual beliefs while hoping for a happy and prosperous New Year."

Perhaps his party leader's New Year message will contain some policies against which we can test this spirit of harmony. In the meantime the rest of us can take the new caring, sharing Conservative Party with a large pinch of salt.
