How are we going to decide on who to burn in effigy this year? This list of possibles is already pretty huge. Boris, Cameron, Gove, Corbyn, Osbourne, Farage, Sturgeon, whoever is the next PM, whoever is the next leader of Labour, Maria Caulfield (could be portrayed as a damp squib). The upcoming Iraq war report could put Blair back in the picture as a candidate. Forget Brexit, this is important.

"We" normally let our Captain of Tableaux decide, subject to approval by the committee of course. Not sure how the other societies do it but I suspect none of them hold a public vote.

Therefore I lied to please the mob.
Now all my lies are proved untrue
And I must face the men I slew.
What tale shall serve me here among
Mine angry and defrauded young?

God gives all men all earth to love,
But, since man's heart is smal,
Ordains for each one spot shal prove
Beloved over all.
Each to his choice, and I rejoice
The lot has fallen to me
In a fair ground-in a fair ground --
Yea, Sussex by the sea!
