    Why would you be bothered? What kind of joyless, empty person would sit down and write that alternative version and what could they hope to gain from it?

      this guy is absolutely correct to nip such lunatic fantasy as santy in the bud. hitler believed in all kind of nonsense, and look where it lead us, eh? eh?

        The past tense of to lead is ‘led’, not ‘lead’.
        Sorry, I hate being that assh0le who corrects spellings. I’m only pointing this out in the hope that others who make this mistake and who may see this will realise their error. Why this particular mistake bothers me, I don’t know.
        Maybe I need to get out more.
        Sorry Scottser. Nothing personal.

          It’s easy enough not to be that guy. When you find your finger hovering over the reply button just think to yourself: there could be one less asshole comment on Broadsheet today, and continue on your merry way. Correcting someone’s spelling is only ever going to be a positive thing if the original misspelling in some way made it difficult to understand the piece.

    Fair play. I too refuse to patronise and talk down to children so this year instead of dolls and spiderman im making my nieces and nephews watch holocaust documentaries and then spend the evening browsing job bridge with them to show them what lies ahead. St Stephens day shall be spent learning to build a fire and spear a sika deer with the sharpened femur of your ‘companion’
