STRUGGLING pubs and restaurants rely on Christmas income to survive.
But the needless cruelty of the festive rail strikes cost the hospitality industry an estimated £1.5billion last week.

These selfish strikes are not only spoiling everyone’s Christmas.
They are also threatening thousands of vital jobs in an industry already on its knees.
PM Rishi Sunak today describes the rail workers as “foot soldiers in a class war”.
He is quite right.
Today we reveal evidence of the hard Left core pulling the strings within Mick Lynch’s RMT union.
Six members of the union’s ruling national executive committee are closely linked to extremists who are agitating for a general strike.
There can be no doubt about the self-serving political aims of these militants.
They want nothing less than to paralyse the country and bring down the Government.
It is now up to moderate rail workers to stand up to Mr Lynch.
They must accept that they have been made a good offer and, unlike the NHS, the railway business is better paid and generally overstaffed.
It is time for them to call a halt to the ideologically-driven anarchy wrought by their union bosses.
Otherwise they will wreck their public support, their own industry and the British economy.
Oversee slack French
IF you have any doubts about how slack French policing of the migrant crisis is, take a look at the words of the evil people smuggler we interview today.
He claims cops encourage the gangs to take migrants to England.
Of the 600 smugglers in the camps not a single one has been arrested.
In the last two years we have given the French £117million to help in this battle.
We’ll never get value for money until we get British observers on the ground.
Cheer it is Merry Xmas
THERE’S a lot of doom and gloom about at the moment.
But just take a look at the smiling faces of the sick children you have helped in our brilliant Xmas card campaign.
We can’t thank you enough.
There will be no Sun on Sunday next week, but we will be back with a bang in the New Year.
A very happy Christmas to all our readers.
