I've just read all the Sunday Newspaper Magazines - well, the Telegrah, the Times and I had a look at the Observer online. All of them are full of ways to cut the cost of Christmas by spending or handy tips for Credit Crunch presents that are still more than I can ever afford, or think it worth affording, anyway.

It's not so much the lies that we tell ourselves, it's more about the lies that the relatively very rich tell themselves about what it's like to have no money. Not that I'm poor, but, you know.

Anyway. I agree that most media are being terribly dishonest about this. Motley Fool used to be full of good advice years ago, but when I took a look at it a couple of months back I was shocked with the way that it had become the mouthpiece for parsimony-as-fashion.

Bring back the eighties, I say.
