Cuddly Secretary of State for Communities, Eric Pickles, has revealed in an exclusive interview for Young Fascist magazine that he is ‘the number one fan’ of the festive season. In the run up to Christmas, Mr Pickles MP practices the message of the Big Society and takes a ‘very hands on’ approach to managing his local choir, in preparation for their climax of the year at Midnight Mass. On Christmas Day the male staff from his 104 acre estate are allowed to join the Pickles family for Christmas dinner, after which Eric needs no encouragement to run around the table and pull their crackers. Boxing Day sees the MP for Brentwood reaching for his whip and going for a ride with the stable boy.
Mr Pickles admits that he will be paying special attention this year to the Queens Speech as his mate Dave has hinted that he might get a mention.
