Easy on Santa, bring on Camilla

By Eddie McIlwaine

You're not going to believe this – but I've just seen my first Christmas commercial on television.

I was so shocked at the speed with which this year is passing that I didn't catch the name of the firm for whom Yule can't come soon enough.

I'd like to take them to task. This kind of thing spoils the season of goodwill.

Even Santa Claus will have to be paid overtime if they go on like this.

Which reminds me – I took a lightning poll a while back and came up with the fact that the majority of under-40s in Belfast would like former Strictly winner Camilla Dallerup to switch on the lights of the Christmas tree at City Hall.

Camilla is usually here in the New Year, dancing with the Ulster Orchestra in the Waterfront along with Ian Waite.
