http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/berkshire/7053609.stm 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.
