because it's anti-Catholic and encourages yobbos to go around begging for money and lighting fires.

To to mention the fact that people, even children are having FUN. Which should of course be banned.

Yes! Drown all the witches!

I have a friend who pulls her kid out of bonfire stuff at school because it's anti catholic.

YANBU. As a Lewes girl I hate getting dressed up with my friends each year and having a jolly good party with fire torches & rum. Hate it.

MaryZombie Tue 22-Oct-13 21:17:27

It's a disgrace, isn't it.

And I'm sure it's imported from somewhere. In fact, possibly London. So shouldn't be allowed in far-flung places like Gloucestershire and Wales

I do think however that diy at home fireworks should be BANNED!

sarahtigh Tue 22-Oct-13 21:17:48

well you would have to ban hallowe'en too too scary for elderly encourages begging etc etc and fun for children which must not be allowed at all

x-posted Famzilla.

I know, I really sympathise. All this enforced FUN. It's not fair.

MaryZombie Tue 22-Oct-13 21:19:01

Exactly sarah.

That nasty Scottish import. It shouldn't be allowed in leafy middle England.

I actually don't like fireworks at all, but let's not spoil the frothing by getting all serious

Yeah, I am pretty sure it's American too. <sneery face>

ColderThanAWitchsTitty Tue 22-Oct-13 21:19:57

I actually would like to ban drunk dads playing with fireworks..

SPsTombRaidingWithCliff Tue 22-Oct-13 21:20:00

Ban it!

Who wants bonfire lollies, parkin and alcohol?! Not me, that's for sure.

Kids having fun? What's all that about?

real witches don't drown!

MaryZombie Tue 22-Oct-13 21:21:47

I'm in Ireland where fireworks are banned.

Which of course just means there are millions of them about.

SP grin

Can't beat a good Lewes bonfire! Does the Bishop of Sussex (suspect that's not his proper title) still stand up and get pelted with rookies?

I was in labour firing out my own rocket last year on the 5th Nov, on those grounds it should be banned, if I was missing so should everyone grin

MaryZombie Tue 22-Oct-13 21:25:14

Or if you are tied to a ducking stool, Fright. Or is it a dunking stool? I don't know much about witches.

usualsuspect Tue 22-Oct-13 21:27:02

Just ban anyone from having fun ever.

That should please the whinging misery arses.

ScabbyOozingCarbuncle Tue 22-Oct-13 21:30:33

no no no! You BURN witches. Water is holy, so if you put a witch in water she will float as the water rejects her as she is unholy!
All forms of fun should be banned! Especially those that happen in the winter!

ScabbyOozingCarbuncle Tue 22-Oct-13 21:31:24

if you duck a suspected witch and she drowns, she is innocent.

Why do people know so much about how to kill witches?!
