Yobbish behaviour on bonfire night has got worse year by year. Their response to criticism is that of a bully.

I was an avid bonfire lad and I was involved in the Firework side so I know what it's all about. But everyone now has to remember it has become a lawless uncontrolled event with an attitude we are lewes and dont give a toss about anything the morons that urinated and dedicated in shop doorways, the ones that trash your gardens, the ones that use offensive language with children about. They are lawless, so when you tell me dont come to lewes then il tell you let me come and crap in your garden year after year. Bonfire is as dead as the idiot that started it. About time everyone grew up and washed the history out of those stinking striped jumpers

Oh and another thing it was meant to say defecated just in case the spell checkers start, it was a typo

I know it's Lewes. So what, you move and take your pathetic habits with you. When did the entire town take a vote to be kept awake until 1am by man babies and their pwecious bangy bangs on the night before the event? Never. I love the bonfire event and have lived here for decades, but this dogmatic and antisocial attitude belongs anywhere but here. You are in the wrong town, not us.

Itís always been like that. The biggest change over the 50 years that Iíve been here is the number of idiots who come to watch and cause trouble. Mostly, but not exclusively, young and drunk. 30 years ago nobody would have taken a sh*t in my garden on 5th. The fun has mostly gone out of it for me now. Maybe itís old age setting in!!!

Surely you all (especially Ian) did your homework and found out what happened on Bonfire night (and the previous night) before you decided to move here. Bit like buying a house next to an airport and being surprised about the planes flying over. Embrace the town in which you have decided to live.

@ Ian: bonfire has been "lawless" since the Explosives Act 1875 prohibited using fireworks on a public highway.
There is a small element of drunken louts who behave disgracefully, but that is true of any event that involves large numbers of people in high spirits. Anyone who's ever lived near a football ground will have experienced similar gross behaviour, and rugby fans can be bloody awful too.
I vowed that I would never move to within 3 miles of a football club because of the noise, disruption and loutish yobboes. And it's least bonfire is only once a year, not every other week for 10 months like football. And no-one is forced to live here.

@its lewes, I was born in lewes, so no I wont be moving because of a bunch of yobbish drunk morons. They are the ones that need to clear off.

All the stoopid planks who thinks it's great to let off rookies over bonfire week and at any time of day or night are a dying breed. As house properties rise they are being priced out of the town.

I'm amazed by the amount of moaning that goes on about Bonfire. 'Fed up' because someone let off some bangers on the wrong night?? If it's not that, it's dog owners whinging about the psychological trauma their precious mutts have to endure for a couple of nights (well, they don't have to of course, you could take them on a dog holiday or a dog spa treatment or whatever you dog owners think your animals are entitled to). Bonfire makes me proud to live in Lewes, I'm so pleased to be raising my family here in a place that has real living traditions and culture, not a bland clone town. Any of my fellow DFLs who've moved here and have the temerity to slag off Bonfire should bugger off to Crawley or East Grinstead or any other zombie commuter town and stop bellyaching. Bonfire Forever!
