Ok it's only thoughts of a few, but considering how long the "budgies" have been in Bonfire why bring it up now?
Also where are the people who have suffered from the "adverse effect this action has on members of the Lewes community". Maybe they would like to step forward in their masses and tell us about it all?
Its only racist because some people with nothing else better to do and possibly with a grudge against bonfire think its "awfully clever" to launch a capmpaign which has no backbone. It it had I've no doubt that the Zulu issue would have been addressed years ago.
The only one positive thing that comes from it is that any bonfire society still stuck for an idea for "Enemy of Bonfire" now has one.
No doubt these people are those with the mentality who want to see a Red Poppy banned from Rememberance Parades etc.
If all this racist nasty bonfire upsets you. thern simply close the curtains, get back to munching your organic flapjacks, knitting your llama wool sweaters and see what other silly ideas you can come up with.
For the record I'm not a Bonfire Boy either - just a local person who gets increasingly annoyed by the collection of numpties who seem to decide they know what is best and are determined to be "PC" at whatever cost...

Right. I'm sure they felt completely at ease telling you exactly how they felt. Because as this forum demonstrates, bonfire is devoted to freedom of speech and in no way lashes out brutally at those who dare to criticise an aspect of it.

The Sussex bonfire culture has hitherto been unafraid to take an uncompromising stance In its practice of Bonfire and its wider defence of English tradition and heritage.
Political correctness is a facet of cultural Marxism, an odious totalitarian doctrine, an infection initially spread with a semi clandestine subtlety by its protagonists who now, swaggering with a confidence fuelled by the spinelessness of modern politicians, strut openly amongst us barking orders devoid of all reason that they expect and demand that you obey without question.
Let us be clear, their goal is the total destruction of the British culture you know and love. Resist it, ridicule it, prosecute bonfire as you have always done: do not be druv.

4 out of the top 5 channels showing the same thing nearly all day. Somewhat excessive.
Got up this morning and the BBC is still... more
I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
