Drunk Santas in Christmas rampage

FORTY drunken Santas rampaged through Auckland, New Zealand's largest city, at the weekend, stealing from stores and assaulting security guards in a protest against the commercialisation of Christmas.

Police said some of the Santas threw beer bottles, one tried to climb the mooring rope of a cruise ship and a security guard was punched. "They came in, said: 'Merry Christmas' and helped themselves," said one shop worker.

Police said identification was a problem as they tried to sort out which of the 40 men and women did what.

"With a number of people dressed in the same outfit, it was difficult for witnesses to confirm the identity of who was doing what," said an officer.

Ally McLesbian

The hypocrisy of the American Christian political movement is appalling.

It is beyond comprehension that so many Americans, including relatively affluent ones like myself, must lack health insurance so that some neocon's political ideology will stay intact.

Thanks for bringing it into the light.
