'Supplanting reality' with Melanie Phillips

Melanie Phillips, 18 November 2012:

fabrications, fantasies and falsehoods take on a life of their own  and can come to represent a settled view which, despite being without any foundation whatever, starts to supplant reality altogether.

Melanie Phillips, 26 September 2011:

Christmas has been renamed in various places ‘Winterval'.


  1. The Winterval idea was used by Birmingham City Council back in the late 90s as a religion neutral solution to a problem that did not actually exist.

    They never forget though.

  2. Erm no it wasn't Anon

    It was a PR exercise to promote a whole bunch events through December. Such as Diwali, Chrismas, Children in Need.

    Christmas is very much alive and well in Birmingham.

    But don't let sanity and reality get in the way of the "Right Wing Agenda"
