Last year I had the misfortune to witness the so called Cliffe Bonfire procession, and as a practicing Viking, I took enormous offence to a number of people I saw dressed up in my national costume ! This was obviously a premeditated racist attack on not just Vikings but indiginous Scandinavian people in general, and must be stopped. Furthermore, I was horrified to witness the wearing of so many stripey jumpers in what was quite frankly only a beret and a string of onions away from an attack on our French friends. From what I understand these thinly veiled racist attacks were taking place all over the town, with people dressed as native American Indians, Mongols, Greeks, Samurai.. the list is endless.
Why, oh why, do we allow these Xenophobic 'traditions' to continue. Having recently come down from London, and therefore more intelligent than you Lewes lot, and having witnessed bonfire once, I obviously consider myself an expert on the subject and see no need for any further investigation into its origins and traditions, and would heartily recommend that these racist atrocities are stopped forthwith !

The post-colonial white-privilege of Bonfire has convinced me that Lewes should be forced to become just like every other town in the South East of England with elevated property values:
An inoffensive carbon-copy safe-space where cultural diversity that cannot be safely controlled by the educated and affluent is kept firmly in check.
I mean local culture is one thing. But when it is locally grown and has historical origins that aren't easily explained to outsiders, it makes for awkward dinner-parties.

Boring - you are JUST that
Bob - Thankfully, old Lewesians will ensure that Lewes remains true to it's historical values of inclusiveness, diversity, acceptance and tolerance.
