It is that time of year again, mischievous youth, riff raff and social undesirables are making a nuisance of themselves, today is their annual holiday. I am against bonfires, the CO2 that will be released tonight will contribute to Catastrophic Climate Change, I feel sick even thinking about it, bonfires should be illegal. Another thing that bothers me are people with explosive objects, some people call them "bangers" and "fireworks", I call them explosive objects. My pomeranian Mr Biggish gets terrified when he hears explosive objects going off in the distance, he sits behind a wheelie bin shaking uncontrollably and whimpering, I would let him in the house if he didn't soil, the infernal dog refused to be house-trained. People caught with explosive objects need to be sent to Gaol, that would teach them a lesson.

Should this be in the 'humour' section ?

The little blackguards can make their own way to Mali, Geoffrey. I'm certainly not going to send them.

They are illegal, so are fireworks.
Yesterday I came across a golden retriever, probably had been hit by a car, broken back leg. I couldn't catch him as he ran off terrified when I got out of the car. Every year for about 3 weeks there is a huge increase in dogs being hit by cars when they bolt across roads.
If they made bangers legal for the one night, and if people restricted their use of bangers to the one night, it would give pet owners some hope of controlling their animals. It's not reasonable to sedate an animal for 3 weeks.

Bonfire bans, no.
People dumping household waste and toxic materials (old couches, tyres, tv's) in the fires, yes.

One of the funniest posts in a while. You should put Mr Biggish in a kennel for Halloween. You obviously didn't put the time needed into house training. It is hard work.

Boys having a bit of fun with bangers one night in the year. If they were not doing that they would find something worse to do.

Geoff, according to recent research your Mr Biggish is also a significant contributor to CO2 emmissions. I'd advise you to buy a Korean cookbook, tuck in and leave the kids alone.

I am a Vegan. Of course you knew that and only said what you said to offend me. *Newsflash* I am not offended.

I wish people would take this more seriously. Bonfires contribute to Catastrophic CC. Explosive objects (fireworks) are dangerous and annoying. We need to come down hard on the riff raff that are damaging the environment and making a nuisance of themselves. ZERO TOLERANCE.
Bonfires have nothing to do with global warming, they're such a tiny fraction of a percentage of the global co2 output they're insignificant.

Using CC as an excuse to ban bonfires weakens both arguments (it allow the denialists to claim that AGW is an excuse to curtail freedom, and it makes your case against bonfires and fireworks seem hysterical)

There are good reasons for restricting bonfires, and the main one is public safety, children and drunken teenagers building large fires in populated areas and inadvertedly putting explosive or toxic materials into them causes injuries every year, and the same goes for fireworks, they're very dangerous when in the hands of irresponsible people.

(by the way, I think fireworks and bonfires are fine when used responsibly. if kids want to build bonfires in public areas they should be inspected by the fire brigade before they are lit, if people want to have fireworks, they should be used and supervised by adults at all times and very strong penalties should be imposed if they are deployed in a way likely to cause harm, like firing rockets directly at people as they are walking through a public green like what happened to me a few years ago)

Haven't you heard , to save the planet you have to eat 'mr biggish'
. You could let the wee dog in the house for one night of the year but you put your own comfort before the dog's fears which means you are a cold hearted so and so as far as dogs are concerned. Meanwhile the poor wee dog is outside crying and whimpering, letting the odd howl out and making a nuisance of himself towards the neighbours which makes you, his owner, an anti social element, a social undesirable and the only thing for you is gaol where maybe they'll make you eat dog to save the planet and teach you not to be anti social with your howling hound disturbing the peace..

I agree, ZERO TOLERANCE towards those who force their dogs outside at Halloween where they howl and whimper annoyingly and disturb the unfortunate neighbours as much as the bloody bangers. You are a naughty boy, Geoffrey.

Is 'riff raff' dog talk like ruff ruff?

As far as I know my teenage boys have had a good clean night including letting off rockets and screamers. They were not taking drugs or drinking cider. They and their friends are as decent a bunch of lads as you'd care to find. Oh yeah, and we kept our dog in for the evening and she was very happy.

Geoffrey, the time has come to eat Mr Biggish.

That is also my experience about the great majority of the young people out tonight. I have my dog in too.
