Guy Fawkes-Bonfire Night
It is sad that today we celebrate, rather than mourn, the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1603. I think that today millions of people would be on the side of the plotters.
Mind you, with parliament having handed our sovereignty to the European Union bureaucrats, if a modern day plot were to succeed we probably wouldn't notice a big difference.
An example of how bureaucrats ruin simple pleasures can be found in this article. Health and safety is so costly and complex that Ifracombe Rugby Club are having a virtual bonfire tonight.
A modern day plot? We can hope.
