Coke lorry? No thanks
ON PAGE 19 of The Press of November 29, there was a report of a lorry visiting York with associated road closures on Wednesday, December 4.
So what is the “Coca Cola Christmas lorry”? Is Coca Cola paying for the road closure signs to be put in place? Is it giving the council a fee to advertise in the city centre?
Maybe they’re going to give free fizzy pop to disgruntled motorists and delivery drivers who can’t go to where they want on that morning? What has Coke got to do with an ancient Pagan festival usurped by a newer Christian tradition? Is it that this Christian tradition has been usurped by the Church of Commerce, worshipping the great God Capitalism? We need to know!
