Crusader, you sound like the trouble maker we had on here a short while ago. HE, tried to stir up racial hatred in Lewes. Now YOU are trying to stir up bonfire trouble. Let me tell you,you are outnumbered whoever you are. Clear off to wherever you came from. We do not want, or need your kind.Bye Bye.

Talking of dull threads, does anybody know where one purchases designer string in this Godforsaken town.

Indecent citizen I simply object to the blasphemous defamation of my faith as displayed when you burn effigies of the Pope. Do you not understand how offensive this is? If you had any decency you would support this basic request for respectful behaviour and encourage people to stop this illegal and shameful "tradition". It makes your town look intolerant and makes many people very angry. Why should I accept it? Behave yourself

So has anyone actually pointed out to this nincompoop that the effigy of the Pope is not the (alive at time of going to press) current pope? But the one who sanctioned the executions in this town? And has anyone else pointed out to this nincompoop that many Christians (Catholics too) take part in these Nov 5th celebrations? I bet this nincompoop read on the internet a journalistic interpretation of the 5th Nov celebrations,citing The Wicker Man as a comparison,causing him to research his Dennis Wheatley book.

Fifth Horseman. Please get your facts right. The Pope at the time of the Marian Persecutions was Pope Paul IV. We traditionally burn/blow up Pope Paul V who was the incumbent at the time of the Gunpowder Plot, which is the whole point of the evening. An Act of Parliament was passed in 1605 demanding all people should take to the streets every 5th November to celebrate the discovery of The Plot.
Perhaps someone with Crusader's beliefs and rather narrow vision would complain if someone were to burn an effigy of the Bourgias, a fine Papal family.

There are certain things in Lewes you cannot argue about as no one can actually put together an against them that any one will listen to. It used to be Bonfire, then it was Norman Baker, and now Ruth oKeefe.
Perhaps now we are beginning to see the faults in all of them.

I actually agree with Crusader's views...and I have lived in Lewes for years. Can't stand November 5th, it's pathetic.
My opinion. Deal with it.
Not everyone who lives here likes/supports bonfire night and the "traditions" they impose on us.

You've lived in Lewes for years - this implies that you didn't always live here. Were you not aware of bonfire when you moved here?
When I moved to Lewes I realised that I would have to take my dog out of town on the 5th.
As for Crusader - hasn't the world had enough of religious loonies?
