''Government acknowledges genuine concerns about the use and, the misuse, of fireworks. Legislation restricts the sale of fireworks and controls their use, and we have no plans to extend this further.''

So thats a No.
Its an odd reaction considering I can no longer buy organic weedkiller because of the war on terror.

Yes I had this response. Very poor.

How does legislation control their use? hmm

Time to write to our MPs here

What restriction? Just sell to people with money?

Perhaps if we bought a shed load from Asda and set them off in the HofP basement, they might reconsider.

I think I signed a similar thing last year or the year before and got the same response.
