I had a lovely Christmas Day with friends and family, and Santa was very good to me. I hope the same is true for all of you.
Even so, I look forward to the new year. I thought 2016 was a bad year, but 2017 was even worse... if not so much for me personally, then certainly for a lot of my friends and loved ones, and for the nation and the world as a whole.
I hope better times are ahead for all of us.
