When Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Theresa Villiers, decided to send out a Christmas card to her constituents, she probably thought she was being a pretty nice person.
She might have even thought a few extra votes would come her way.
But no. The card bombed harder than Chelsea’s title defence, and sparked a flurry of calls for her resignation, because apparently, the people of Northern Ireland take Christmas cards VERY seriously indeed.
So this was the card…
And the situation escalated quickly, with a number of people complaining about the card.
It was posted too late, the shit attempt at using Photoshop didn’t go down well, basically the whole card was a disaster.
But the font. Dear God, the font.
That was the real deal breaker, with people calling for her to resign over her use of Comic Sans. Seriously.
@NIOPressOffice Comic Sans? What did the people of Northern Ireland ever do to you? :(

To be honest, if that’s the biggest issue the voters have with a candidate, they’re doing pretty well. At least she’s not having inappropriate relations with a turkey.
