Opinion: Perhaps our most Christian Prime Minister for some time, at least on paper, Theresa May has issued her first Christmas message to the people of the United Kingdom.
The daughter of a vicar Mrs May talks a good talk about Christianity but actions speak louder than words.
She may be a fairly new Prime Minister but she has been an integral part of Tory governments and policy making since 2010. She was also in the thick of it during the Conservative opposition years.
So she has been complicit in increasing the poverty of many and helping fat friends get richer.
Sky news reporting on Mrs May's Christmas message quotes:
"As we leave the European Union we must seize an historic opportunity to forge a bold new role for ourselves in the world and to unite our country as we move forward into the future," Mrs May says.
Mrs May talks up some aspects of the UK notably our Olympic achievements and the British Royal family.
"The PM names the Queen's 90th birthday as a highlight of 2016" but was it for YOU?
She made a non-political message that ultimately was perhaps style over substance and may appeal if you are a fan of Mrs May.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, gave a less stylised Christmas message; one from the heart addressing some of the very real challenges many people in the UK will face in 2017.
Mr Corbyn talked of the increased loneliness too many people will experience over the Christmas period and the plight of the homeless.
Tim Farron for the Liberal Democrat party and Caroline Lucas and Jonathan Bartley for the Green party all gave political messages concentrating on some of the challenges people are facing.
Mrs May's message will perhaps appeal to Tory voters but it was a little to statesperson like for an unelected Prime Minister.
In line with current Tory MPS in reality she said nothing. They, the Tories, are experts at evading questions and giving limited meaningless answers. Mrs May's Christmas message fits that remit well.
It was style over substance and for me her style held no appeal.
Watch the messages for yourself:
