Revd Tim Heaton’s Thought for the Day
Day 16 - Friday, 20 November
I’ve never seen so many scarlet berries on the holly – the resemblance of Christ’s blood – soon to be stripped by a million fieldfares and redwings, Viking raiders from across the North Sea.
Presumably this will stop on 1st January once the EU transition period has ended. Mr Johnson, former figurehead of the Leave Campaign and the man who “got Brexit done”, has promised to regain control of our borders. How dare these Scandinavians just fly in willy-nilly.
Well, I’m not so sure. We need harvesters and fruit-pickers and these migrant workers seem to get the job done. The holly will be bare by Christmas!
