The government’s Christmas message was that it’s bringing back pint bottles of Champagne. So?

Daft: Liz Truss is trying to woo the public with empty promises.

You may have been wondering where Vox Political has been for the past few days, Christmas notwithstanding.

Well, I want you all to know that I was not partying it up like a crazed Bacchanalian baboon. No!

I was at a business meeting.

For this reason, I was unable to report on the latest Brexit-related development, that turned into the Tory government’s message of great joy for Christmas – until it backfired:

The fact that it’s a brainchild of possible Boris Johnson backstabber may be a source of some consolation for the prime minister, who would be having a rotten Christmas if he was capable of understanding the world of torment into which he is slowly falling.

Quite a few people have been having fun with it.

I certainly can’t understand why anybody would care.

Most of us in the UK don’t remember pint-sized champagne bottles and wouldn’t see the point of them anyway. We would be paying more money for less product, yet again.

And why would any French wine producer (champagne can only come from that region of France) bother changing their production process to provide smaller bottles to the UK market? It would be costly and, with no guarantee of a market, risky.

So it was a meaningless statement: the government is making it possible for manufacturers to sell UK customers pint glasses of champagne – but nobody is likely to do it.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
