Image: Ebenezer Scrooge is the protagonist of Charles Dickens' 1843 novella A Christmas Carol. At the beginning of the novella, Scrooge is a cold-hearted miser who despises Christmas. The tale of his redemption by three spirits has become a defining tale of the Christmas holiday in the English-speaking world.
ABC Note: With MP's getting £100K in lobbying fees £10 seems more like a kick in the 'Gonads'. Bank of England Chief Economist Andy Haldane has been appointed as the new Head of the Levelling Up Taskforce. The taskforce has been jointly established by the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Michael Gove MP.
