In regards to "Lewes Lady" commenting on the dropping of rooks in the procession, how can you possibly say that its a male only thing?A testosterone/penis sized thing?! your comments are laughable and the precise reason why no one ever takes you people seriously. I march with females and males every year and there certainly is no difference in the amount of rooks each gender lets off. How dare you be so sexist and insulting.

Okay James, will it make you happier if we agree there are tossers in both sexes?

The 5th is over. It's gone. It's old news. Let it go people and let's start all this up again next year.
No one is making any new points - one side are moaning about bonfire, the other are protecting it, and nothing anyone says is going to change either's opinions. Let's just leave it there for this year hey? We're all getting very bored of it.
(Ban kids at bonfire though!)

How will you ban them Toot? Have the police arrest them? Can you just seek the poice charging through the crowd to try to get hold of a kid? There'll be a riot.

I want documented proof that rookies are thrown equally by both sexes. I have never seen females in stripey jumper throwing bangers in the street..it is always males aged 12 to late 20's....this coincides with a period of extremely high testerone activity down below..

Not that it matters but the only person I know of being ejected from the Waterloo procession by their marshalls for inappropriate rookie use this year was a young lady.

......and the only person I spotted in Cliffe, who was using them inappropriately was female! although once her error was pointed out, she adopted a much safer approach.

The only person I know who was stupid enough to put an apparently dud rookie back in the rookie bag, only for it to go off, is female. And not even blonde!
Amazingly, she was uninjured, although the bag was fatally damaged.

I can verify that I and my daughter have 'thrown' (dropped) rookies. And so have many of her female friends. And we were wearing our smuggler jumpers at the time.
