Actually, he may be correct for once. Traditionally, isn't the tree meant to go up twelve days before Christmas Day?Oh dear, the stupid old fool just tried to make a joke..........it was a very simple joke, and a five year old could have carried it off, but with it being on the spur of the moment he totally fluffed it.
He was asked if he had put his Christmas tree up yet, then was asked if he would wait until he was (potentially) in 10 Downing Street.
His off the cuff retort related to him winning the GE and saying he would put one up on the 12th...................So before the result was known.
pethaos he plans to lose the GE and will put it up in Islington.
I seem to recall that from my childhood.
