Why can't people treat the forum for what it should be a source of information for lewes people. Instead of the thick comments we seem to get now.

Lewes bonfire really is the reserve of the bigoted, idiotic, small-minded simpleton. Small town mentality writ large

@Past Tense - bit of a sweeping statement to label 4000-5000 Lewesians that way!
Assume you're one of the new breed of Lewes residents who has made no effort to embrace the wonderful culture of this unique town and would rather cast stones from the outside hoping to crack the odd pane or 2.
Join in, make an effort to find out was bonfire is really about. You'll be surprised!

WTF I often see and hear comments about the true meaning and nature of bonfire. I think whatever it stands for has shifted over the years but (without asking you to write a manifesto) I'd be interested to hear what you or others do think it is really about. My guess it's some combination of:
- maintaining traditions
- remembrance of WWI and II
- defiance of authority/misrule
- historic anti-catholicism
- defiance of the politically correct
- local rivalries
- small-town status issues
- fireworks
- carnival
- getting involved with local community activity
I wouldn't suggest it means all these things for everyone involved (for instance I don't think most people involved give a hoot about catholicism, and I also think that a lot of people would resent any reference to carnival, because IT'S NOT ABOUT HAVING FUN).
anyway as I say I'd be interested in what you think it is 'really about'.

I think it gives a chance for rotund males past their prime, with very little in life and a dislike of anything or anyone different, to feel self important and throw their weight around? But I could be wrong......

Well Past Tense, it's a fair bet that any rotund men in Bonfire have been there since they were slim kids. The thing that non Bonfire folk don't get is that people have grown up with i - it's a part of their life, a family, and they protect it passionately, but to say they dislike anyone different is ludicrous. It is also a fact that many people in Bonfire are highly talented and successful in many varied walks of life, but t suppose it's easy to mock what you don't know or understand.
