Bonfire Night

It’s Bonfire Night here in England, and outside it sounds like Baghdad on a good night. Fireworks are completely legal here, and you can buy them literally everywhere, from the local supermarket to the corner shop. And I don’t mean sparklers and small firecrackers. You can get some serious ordnance. But now the government is planning, finally, on regulating fireworks, sort of.

I love fireworks, spent many summers of my youth dodging the Grayslake Police and setting off homemade fireworks that the IRA would have been proud to have owned. But even I have to admit that the situation here is totally insane. Guess I’m just getting old.
