Bonfire Tradition

Of all the many time honored Bonfire rituals our favorite is the annual argument about the people who black up and pretend to be Zulus, theatrical “Native Americans “ and so on. It would be an insult to history that any of the details should change and my suggestion is that this is formalised into a public pageant with children taking the various roles.
The Zulu Argument –all roles taken by children of local schools
Enter Evil Bill`s dining Politically Correct DFL appearing on stage brandishing Guardian weeping what are obviously crocodile tears …
EVIL PC DFL- This insult to ethnic minorities must end, in this day and age ( here insert any age form 1970s onwards ), it is staggering that we continue to indulge in racist glorification of an Imperial past that should be a source of deep shame. Boo hoo
Enter several heroic members of Borough and/or other accused society carrying spades symbolising honest toil ….
Heroic Bonfire People – You have misunderstood what is actually tribute the bravery of Zulus and Native Americans anyway stop taking our free speech away and anyway no-one would be offended unless you told them to be offended and anyway who asked you anyway ;( anyway)
Enter Right Wing Trouble Maker – Yes evil DFL Bill`s Dining thing, the Empire was a good thing we were the ones who banned slavery and it is you who re the racist and your obsession with identity politics has caused all manner of harm anyway you are a DFL .
EVIL PC DFL – So are you bloody Fascist !
(EVIL PC DFL and R W DFL continue long boring debate no-one cares about )

Enter Voice of History holding scroll.
Voice of History - …..and so the long tradition of Zulus continued, accompanied by the almost equally long tradition of having an pointless argument about it

Wild applause

The underlying concept was fine. Presentation needs improvement. And why oh why must the Guardian be only for DFLs ?

Some intrepid fellows dressed up as the Penitents from the inquisition in the early nineties and marched with a well known society from over the bridge. Looking rather like the KKK in black outfits with tall hoods etc. they got ticked off for it by the public and officials alike. It may have been a mistake to think everyone would get the point. Some bod on the radio moaned about it at the time I recall.
I am horrified to read that the EDL read the guardian. I saw an anarchist in Tesco's last week and a tory peer in Aldi. The world is coming apart at the seams.
