Why is it that those who hold a position in a Lewes bonfire society, think they can look down at others and belittle them? Why do they think they are better than anyone else? If they were to go outside the town and behave they way they do, where no one knows them and they are nothing just normal Joe Public they would get laughed at (or more). This nasty snobby degrading behaviour aimed at individuals who don't toe the line is dragging the tradition of Lewes bonfire down. Grow up the lot of you and respect others! What a bunch of wallys!

Blimey, A bit early for the normal "I hate bonfire" rant! Unless your willing to spill the beans on the incident then your post is totally pointless. No one cares...

I agree partially with Whats up. What puzzles me is who gave them permission to use titles like Captain of this and Captain of that, after all they are just grown up boys playing with fireworks and not troops going in to battle. Must go know otherwise I will be late for work and being Captain of dustbins I have a responsibility to the public.

Why do they need permission to call themselves Captain? Its just a traditional name thats all. Sir George Young ,Leader of the House of Commons is also Lord Privy Seal, he is neither a Lord , Privy or Seal!
The Catholic Priest at St Pancras calls himself Father, iam unaware that he has any children? Its bonfire history and tradition, long may it continue!

Given the time of year, my guess is that What's Up just failed to get elected to a committee somewhere (or got voted off), and they've got all bitter and twisted. Oh dear!

They have a right to call themselves anything they like, just as you or I do if we have a society of any kind. As Ben And Jerry had a 'Grand Vizier' and 'grand Poobah of the joy gang, and Primal Icecream Therapist! But as everyone knows.....it's what you do that counts, when you turn up where others don't, where you are consistently around when others can't be arsed that's when people give you the respect you title commands....
In any case I can never remember anyone's title when I speak to them so I suggest it's a little bit all in the mind....

sceptic a childish view i feel . all organisations need some sort of rank and file , every employer , every team , even most normal households have some chain of comand , its a circle of life type of thing , they apply for positions and get voted in (or not ) the rank / title gives you a clue as to what that role is ,and who to see/report to should you want to be a helper , its all very simple , much like you seem to be , enjoy your bins , if you were captain of bins you would be getting someone else to do it , but with out mr and mrs joe avrage bin emptier there would be no need for captin bins , got it !

Someone who was booted out of one society, has joined another, marched first with another one on the 5th, then their own society and then leeched onto another at the end of the night. Someone who thinks they are wanted by Bonfire. No-one wants you, go and find something else to do.

Like many other bonfire boys, I proudly have dual nationality with a couple of societies. I don't consider myself a bonfire hopper, rather - I consider myself supportive of 2 worthy societies.

I know plenty of people who have done that, for one reason or another. A couple I know have grandkids in a different society from their own main one. The parents are busy doing important stuff on the night, so they do the early processions with the grandkids while mum and dad are busy, then join the other society for the last one.
There are also people in bands that play for one society but belong to another, who do similar, and couples where each was originally in a different society but both now have "dual nationality". They often chop and change during the night.
I don't see anything wrong with it, tbh.
