Lets just fire a few rockets, burn a few things, frighten a few pets and let a few fat men run around in ill fitting rugby shirts then we can all get back to normal, moaning about parking etc.

It is good to know that you, at least, appreciate all the hard work that has gone into keeping this event in the world-class league it rightly occupies. Although you give the impression (quite subtly) of being a kill-joy, I would not be surprised if you have already done all of your Christmas shopping, and, just maybe, bought some early Easter eggs as well! Compliments of the season(s) to you all.

I hope your joking here, your are priviledged to live in Lewes, and priviledged to be able to part of something that dates back over 500 years. My family came there with William the Con: and have lived there ever since until me, I am forced to live where I can work, but I'm so home sick tonight I can't tell you. We know hoe to do things right in Sussex, we know how to party and how to celebrate the only truly 100% English tradition there is, be proud of Lewes, enjoy the night and learn to laugh. You'll get on much better there is you do.

I just don't get it.
Some go bang, some go whoosh and if you are really lucky some go bang and whoosh.
Apart from this one incredibly overrated night Lewes is a great place to live.

Yes, it would be like living in Notting Hill and then moaning about the carnival.

Some go stab, some go scream and if you are really lucky.......................You get the picture.

Double yellow line are you a traffic warden? Lewes has been Englands capital of bonfire for 150 years! Its biggest threats come from those in authority who want to kill the event with rules and regulations and red tape! Also those who want to re write history and bonfire programmes! Yes you dear ex journo!

DYL your odd, must be one of those people who enjoy being unpleasent about things that are important to others. For the record the celebration in Lewes link us directly to our shared History (assuming your an English person that is) and that is why we value it so much, because we have roots. Not everything about this country is defined by our useless national football team you know. I guess your not really a Lewes person born and breed, if you were you won't be so negative. Shame the people in the bonfire societies are wonderful, perhaps you should give them a try, you could probably do with the friends to be honest
