Tomorrow, as much of the world is observing the birth of Jesus Christ, looks like we'll also be observing the cultural death of Britain.

Channel 4, a British TV station (publicly owned, according to Wikipedia), will be playing an "Alternative Christmas Message" tomorrow night from none other than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, with this explanation:

With relations between Iran and the West set to play a central role in world affairs in 2009, Channel 4's Alternative Christmas Message will be delivered by the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Last year, the same address, which seems to be a counter-culture, P.C. affair, was delivered by a wounded British soldier, just back from Afghanistan. How quickly we devolve.
