This is the time to be merry. Ceasefire on negativity, intrigues bashings and all things unpleasant.
All our Queens (and Kings) – major or minor in title – have done their best to bring pride to our country. Let us continue to celebrate them instead of looking at where to nitpick or say something to pull down their hard work and dedication.
Merry Christmas to one and all!
