A bookkeeper, who is taking bets on whether there will be a 'white Christmas' this year, has come under scrutiny today by groups who claim their actions are racist.
Xenophobicgamlor.web insist their betting system is fair however, and vehemently deny the allegations.
The company is offering 2:1 odds on a white Christmas vs 100:1 otherwise.
"It's a very simple system," claims Xenophobicgamblor.web CEO Richard Cockburns. "If 20 or more white people congress at a predetermined location in the UK at midday on 25th December, we declare it a white Christmas. Now, what's racist about that? If a bunch of darkies turn up, we'll honour the bets, I mean, fair's fair."
According to insider knowledge, this year's location is the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. Coincidentally, this is where the Queen and other members of the royal family are gathered to celebrate Christmas day.
So discounting "staff", it's a pretty safe bet.
