I see a South London council has renamed bonfire night 'The Colour Thief: A Winter Extravaganza Celebrating the Change of the Seasons'. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I know, doesn't it just want to make you riot !! Who are these people, where do they get these inane ideas from...why don't they just move to France or Spain, or perhaps Greece.

Chance would be a fine thing. I'm actually slightly dreading it this year - the town totally overrun with every drunken student within 20 miles and half of the rest of the country coming for a quaint weekend to see the townspeople of quaint little Lewes doing their traditional pope-burning resulting in vast crowds.

..... and the inevitable out-of-town eccentrics who'll ring up all the authorities and demand something be done about all the 'anti-Catholic' behaviour. No matter how often you tell them. Daily Mail readers. Probably.

The opener for this thread sounds like the torrent of manager speak we have all been forced to listen to of late,you know,it's not a spade it's an earth dispatching impliment,so we don't offend anyone who, through a twist of language might be offended by the normally used word.

I assumed that 'A Winter Extravaganza' just meant that they'd asked LBBS to organise it?

After watching (and occasionally taking part) over the last 40 years, I'm not sure that I'm going to bother this year. I just can't face the crush, the drunks and the idiots any more. Shame that I've been pushed out, because I always enjoyed bonfire.

Not sure how you can 'occasionally take part'. You're either in it or not.

Monsters, I 'occasionally' go to the pub. I don't spend all my time in one (more's the pity).

'ere be monsters Do you know who originally came up with the phrase "You're either in it or you're not" about Bonfire?
