Christmas Comes Early
The Delingtree (James Delingpole Twitter)

It’s our gift to the world!

In this episode of the United Kingdom’s Most Trusted Podcast®, James and Toby bring you loads of Christmas cheer. We start with the UK’s most famous Christmas tree (that barely fits in the Delingpole household) and more importantly, handy and manly tips on buying gifts for the wife.

After a brief foray into politics, we pivot back to the season and take a look at our favorites (and least favorites, actually) from the movies and song of Christmases past.

Until the New Year, Merry Christmas from London Calling!

    I’m not sure you really want to know.

    Yep. Trash food. Well, with Boris firmly in charge, maybe they won’t have to eat it ever again.

    In my 48 years of married life, never once did I allow my husband to pick out a tree without me. It was always a sweet yearly ritual we did together in order to get the perfect tree and please all concerned and avoid horrendous mistakes like the tree James picked out.

    Christmas Vacation is far superior to Elf. Toby obviously has no taste in music. Die Hard is not a Christmas movie. QED
