Are you confused about how to celebrate Christmas? If you are, you’re probably in the majority. Because when the food-serving pubs open next week, I’ll visit – but, if they’d remained closed, I’d be just as understanding. It depends on who you chat with. We either open everything, or we keep everything shut. We want a happy Christmas, but we most certainly don’t want a drab January. So what do we do?

You’ve got to feel sorry for the decision-makers here. NPHET remind me of the football manager proclaiming: “I’m not interested in the opposition. We just concentrate on our own game.” Meanwhile, Government acting as adjudicator is akin to the match referee, booed by half the stadium.
