    Along with the abysmal july the twelth I find bonfire night to be offensive to my Irish catholic heritage. It is a festival of sectarian hate and anyone who celebrates it should really be ashamed of it. Why should you be allowed to make me feel like a foreigner in my own country? Give me on good reason for it to still be celebrated in modern, tolerant, multi cultural Britain.

    Don't be such a killjoy. Just like the secular nature of Christmas, it's no longer about the Catholic attempt to blow up parliament, no one cares about that. It's a time to just get together and have fun.

    Perhaps we should move the date to 12th October?

    To remind us of the ongoing threat of a medieval religious tyranny that has attempted to overthrow the crown and government of this country by forced invasion and assassination; that carried out cruel executions of huge numbers of people for their beliefs.

    It's possibly not a bad idea to remember such things used to happen a long time ago, just in case anyone thinks it might be a good idea to start doing it again.
