Sussex Police have put together a nine-minute video ahead of Bonfire. There is quite a lot about rookies near the front, using words which (to me) indicate a growing intolerance without actually saying, "we will arrest any rookie-users in the processions".

The noise of the red rookies is a welcome part of the spectacle and impression of Bonfire for me: I hated the blue rookies, though, and hope the blue devices are not used.

It will be a disappointment to me if police become heavy-handed and cause trouble for Bonfire Society members who drop the time-proven red rookies. I believe the police should reserve their efforts for the crowds, who have proven discipline problems year after year.

(I am not a Bonfire Society member, but a happy observer who buys every Bonfire programme)
