Local council has banned November 5th bonfire on environmental grounds.

I always thought that wood burning fires are carbon netural?

What a complete load of toss. These people really are a bunch of cnuts.

You know what the worst bit about it all, no one will do a thing about it, another small part of our history and culture has been removed and in a couple of weeks time no one will care.

I am an expat now but standing outside and looking in make me sad to see what has happened and is still happening to the country and knowing that there is nothing I can do about it. Its a bit like watching a loved relative slide into dementia and terminal illness.

The £4 a ticket Slough Firework Spectacular will now offer a funfair, trapeze show and an Elvis Presley tribute act instead of the traditional bonfire and burning of Guy Fawkes.

What? The UK has become a laughing stock.

The entire Guy Fawkes thing has more relevance now than since it's inital inception. Broon take note!!! Not that I'm advocating another gunpowder plot but still...it's tempting :evil:

But surely the trapeze act would contravene health and safety laws, and the Elvis impres, noise pollution?

Maybe he's a dead Elvis impersonator??

I seem to see a trend and a pattern emerging that any indiginous cultural celebration or ceremony is immediately shut down on the grounds of Health and Safety or Environmental concerns whilst other non indiginous festivals are positively encouraged.

I just hope this means that there will be no more illegal open air Hindu cremations in England.

I won't hold my breath though.

You just cant fucking help yourself can you?

WHY does EVERYTHING have to do with race, perceived injustices of the white majority, or the fact that Britain is going to hell in a handcart because of "immigrunts".

GROW UP!

If everything is as bad as you say stop bleating about it on the internet, go out, buy a ticket and stand for election on the policies you espouse so ineloquently on here.

At least my one track mind keeps me entertained! Yours just appears to make you bitter!

Heed.

You'll need to!

Its funny what gets the militant lefts goat. Three years ago and the greatest threat to global civilisation, stability, peace, yah, yah, yah was George Bush and the 'War for Oil'. Now its Heathrow Airport.
The eco left, who are made up of lots of old school marxists who cut there teeth protesting against the coal mines shutting down have gone all quite over using coal...because its a pollutant. So theyve given up on their one true cause (the miners) in order to have a go at The US, Coke, McDonalds whoever, via the Body Shop coalition of nut jobs...
Hypocrasy ranks with those feminists and commies who cant bring themselves around to condeming militant islam and still think Che Guevara was a man of freedom and tolerance...
It is, as ever, just lashing out at whatever is a right on issue of the day when they certainly cant get their own house in order.

Yeah and I never even mentioned the fact that it is an Asian Elvis impersonator. :twisted:

Details: The crowd will be treated to a superb display of multi-coloured, dramatic fireworks, Up and Beyond trapeze artists, an Asian Elvis Presley tribute and local up and coming singer, Natalie J. There will also be food from around the world and a beer tent for thirsty
Mind you at least one of the local organizers has the right spirit.

Details: A huge fireworks and bonfire event at the hospice organised by Henley Bridge Rotary Club and Caversham Rotary Club. Gates open at 5pm with a pig roast at 5.15pm.

In addition,York Fireworks (Video sorry), was mentioned on the radio news this morning.

"Guy Fake's home town of York will be without its largest public fireworks display this year after the council turned down an application for a safety certificate."

The BBC got the name wrong not me

Oh so you're saying I'm not right? Just wait till they decide to ban Buckfast in case it offends anyone.. you'll be having street riots up in Scotland!

I was actually making a very relevant and valid point.

Remembrance Parades are being restricted due to the cost of Health & Safety but when it comes to "Carnivals" there seems no problem (Apart from the muggings and knifings of course)

I suppose you Jocks are so used to being ruled by foreigners you see nothing wrong with it anymore?

:D

So the Fireworks, with all of their heavy metal and other contaminants (potassium, magnesium, sulphur, carbon, nitrates and chlorates of all sorts) won't cause any pollution then? In actual fact they are MUCH worse pollutants than the wood.

What a load of old PC bollox.

Tends to be Sikh cremations that fall foul of the law. Still, I suppose they all look the same to you, Cad?
Leaders of Britain's Hindu community of more than 500,000 are asking to be given the same cultural and religious freedoms enjoyed by other major religions in the United Kingdom (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) when it comes to funerals - writes Trevor Grundy.

"We are asking for the right to cremate our dead in the way they have been cremated in India and other places for the last 4,000 years," 31-year old barrister Andrew Bogan said at the headquarters of the Anglo-Asian Friendship Society in Newcastle, north-east England.

He explained: "The way Hindus cremate the dead is at the heart of our religion. We've been running a campaign for the last six months and at least there are signs that we're getting somewhere."

London's Times newspaper has reported recently that Hindus may win the right to open-air cremations.

An attempt to establish the first approved site for the centuries old spiritual ceremonies in Northumberland, northern England, was blocked in 2006 after a local authority ruled made it would breach cremation laws.

But in September 2006 the decision was challenged by Davender Kumar Ghai, aged 68, who says he dreads the thought of a local authority cremation authorised by the Cremation Act of 1902.

Guess it is you who dont know the difference. May I suggest that some compulsory cultural and diversity training will educate you.
