Well, you had your say, and you got two pages and a holiday in Spain. The List stafftug their forelocks, queue up to collect their Christmas boxes (a greenish tangerine and a cracked almond) from Mr List and are made to write out their selections of the year, before slumping off to their miserable hovels to enjoy their twenty minutes festive holiday. The photographs reproduced below have been airbrushed to conceal the writers’ deathly pallor and expressions of grim resilience.
