Guy Fawkes? A Brexit Festival!

Many Brits probably don’t realise that what they celebrate tonight, with bonfires and fireworks, is fundamentally a proto-Brexiteering event, in that wicked old Guido was aiming to place Britain under a Continental supranational authority, namely the 17th century Papacy.



Till recently, many bonfires had an effigy of the Pope atop the flames!

In those days, 1605, the Pope was seen by most Brits, post-Reformation, as a threat to sovereignty.

That’s why Mr. Fawkes and his co-conspirators were put to death, for treason, not for their religion per se.

These days, after three years of watching at least half their parliamentarians engaged in manoeuvres little short of consorting with the enemy in Brussels…




….many participants in tonight’s fiery fun may think that blowing up the House of Commons may not have been such a bad idea.

Yet surely a better idea is to introduce referenda as a regular part of the UK’s constitutional arrangements?

Swiss-style direct democracy is the way forward, a means of putting uppity MPs in their deservedly lowly place!


However, tonight, British patriots should make the most of it, and cheer as dummy Guys…

Heil Soros! Unspeakable Guy Defends Plutocrat Med….


….go up in smoke!


Having said all that, sometimes the old customs have a lingering appeal!
