I was terribly upset to spot little bits of red paper and parts of fireworks in my hedge this morning. I thought the 'people' from the bonfire carnival were supposed to clear up thoroughly so that we reasonable citizens could resume our lives once more without being harassed by pops and bangs and stripy coves in bowler hats. Who is responsible? The stress on bonfire has given my cat hives.

Thank you, I tried contacting the Bonfire Council once before but had a terrible experience. I arrived early for my meeting and went to the loo, as I was sitting down I could here raised voices and moaning from beyond the wall. I explored the corridor adjacent to the toilet and traced the source of the noise to an ante room next to where my meeting was to take place. I climbed on a table and peered through the skylight into a room lit by candles with several figures in it. Then I saw the most terrifying thing

Peevesley how very terrible that little insignificant red bits of paper are in your hedge however do you cope!!!!
every year red paper is left it goes away after a while and is not harmful.
people do a very good job picking up REAL rubbish that is harmful off the ground.

Oh but it is harmful! You are wrong! It is a terrible thing . The red paper pieces are like the scurf from the head of the giant Marxist Communist demon of repressive mediocrity. I won't tolerate it. Why should I be forced to have fun? I am a true libertarian in the Lewesian tradition and refuse to be bullied into levity by the mob rule of imposters governing my concept of tradition. The Real Rubbish you refer to? Who is that? The public? The crowds of gawking Foreign students who belligerently challenge society members to defend the apparent burning of pontiffs or the glib celebratory DFL's showing their visiting pals just how 'crazy' the place gets once a year? To hell with it. Anyway, about this weird thing I saw......

Please accept our apologises Peevesy. We've had a sudden influx of new members who we've since found out are 'outsiders' . They got their wires crossed regarding the 'fireworks through letter box, urinate in front garden ' tradition.
I guess you awoke to a wet door mat too.
You'll be glad to know we've obviously thrown them out. If you'd kindly forward your address I'll personally make sure half a dozen 'born & breds' pay you a visit next fifth
Alternatively if you can't wait that long I can arrange for the early hours of the following couple of Sunday's following at out meet

What sort of person expects other people to keep their bush clean . Maybe you should keep it trimmed then you wouldn't get so much paper stuck in there ? I can recommend a man that can if you prefer to have a helping hand .

Congratulations to these who put so much effort into making Lewes a magical place for one night each year, and also congratulations to the teams who work through the night to make the town neat and tidy again for The next morning.
Why on earth were all the schools today?

Why indeed were the schools. Thanks Ron, I will have tea and biscuits ready for the born and breds next fifth but I will have to see birth certificates and they will have to be tested on local history before I let them in. Of course it would depend on which society they belonged to, I'm not prejudiced but I'd feel I'd still have to put paper down with some of them. I have tidied my bush myself Mr laughing thank you. Now about this weird thing
