    Bonfire night is definitely one of the weirder English traditions. Though as a kid it was the sparklers and fireworks that interested me more that the Guy burning in effigy. And yeah, we learnt all about what you’re presumably about to say in secondary school history class – or at least, we did in my school (though my memory of the details now is pretty hazy).

    I see no reason

    why the gun powder treason

    Should ever be forgot.
