It Could Only Be The Green Party…

Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer and the others were nowhere to be seen when an alternative festive figurehead pedalled into town.

Oh oh…

Barnet Green Party sent a green Mother Christmas to Chipping Barnet library to dispense satsumas as well as tips for an environmentally friendly New Year on Sunday.

Can’t they even give it a rest on Christmas?

A planned cycle parade was called off due to heavy rain

*chuckles*

… but Mother Christmas ventured into the covered shopping areas in High Barnet to spread the message about shopping locally and walking, cycling or using public transport.

Bah, humbug!

    If they wish to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, perhaps they should make a contribution and stop breathing.

    Tell your children to keep well away from these lunatics.

      Link page says “While adults seemed nonplussed, many children were fascinated by green Santa, who occasionally removed her beard.”

      Was Santa CRB checked? I certainly wouldn’t want a weirdo giving satsumas to my kid.

    Locally grown satsumas?

    Good to see they’re worshipping the Earth mother. Will they also be introducing the Green man/Horned man as well? Then perhaps they could teach that these were pagan myths which Christianity perverted into Christ and Satan? The Green man after all is everything the Greens hate: waste, education, independence of thought, discarding of social norms, giving the finger to authority?

    Or will they fall back on hypocrisy, terror and fear, the usual weapons of the Left?

        I’ll direct you toward a degree in classics. It took a fair while to learn about the various ways religion subverts societies but, if you are interested google it – throughout history religion has incorporated native myths and the Horned/Green man has always stood as the opposite number to the Maiden/earth aspect.

        Christianity took this and perverted it, making the Green man evil, not merely anarchistic. Thus was Lucifer – bringer of Light (knowledge and thought) /Prometheus, bringer of fire (knowledge)/Loki and finally, our own independent, anarchist, free will representative Lord of the Fae made evil and demonised by the Church. It stands to reason that the ‘new religion’ would equally hate those elements that embody free will, knowledge and self determination.

    Errol, do you have any idea why carvings of the green man are so prevalent in Christian churches? I have always thought that it was an unsolvable mystery, the answer lost in the past. I always assumed that he was something to do with fertility and that the peasants refused to give him up.

    RE Public Transport. I don’t see public transport as being particularly green compared with private cars. The extra passenger carrying capacity of a bus is offset by its higher fuel consumption, its meandering route between A & B, and the fact that it spends a lot of its journey mostly empty.
