I AM writing about an article in the Mailbox section headlined Join the Xmas tree petition.

It is about the Christian Christmas Tree in Birkenhead Park and says Christmas is just around the corner.

Some people at this time of year are still left isolated in their homes.

Plus every year, articles appear in the paper, saying no-one should be left alone.

Last year I was left upset and distressed by someone who was supposed to have picked me up by taxi, yet never did.

This is deplorable at that time of year.

So this year, again, I will be on my own.

I will not bother again with any of these people who call themselves caring but are nothing short of hypocrites.
