Well, the year ends on a high with this story. This from The Metro:

    Artificial leg prompts ‘paedophile panic’ at swimming pool and evacuation of children

    An entire class of primary school children was evacuated from a swimming pool – because a prosthetic leg sticking out from underneath a cubicle was thought to be a paedophile.

    The alarm was raised when staff noticed the foot poking out as the eight- and nine-year-olds got changed following a swimming lesson.

    Teachers immediately took the children out of Larkfield Leisure Centre in Aylesford, Kent, but were stunned to discover that the foot was actually part of a prosthetic leg.

It's as if The Day Today had come true. I can't wait to read about the paedophile who was mistaken for a prosthetic leg.

Merry Christmas Britain. May you never stop being supremely weird.

Sounds like they were trying to get a leg up on things!

Sadly, they wound up not putting their best foot forward.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Maybe he realized he'd been spotted and legged it.
