    Well there have been loud fireworks going off for the last few days around here - thanks for that new law you brought in last year Mr Blair it really made a difference ! I think the only way to stop the kids getting hold of them is to stop selling them altogether and only have proper displays.
    Any other thoughts ?

    I would be in favour of that. Firework seasons starts now and finishes next March otherwise.

    They should be banned from sale until the week before hand and illegal for them to be set other than the 5thNov or the nearest Saturday.

    When I was a lad you use to be able to pick your fireworks well in hand and shopkeeper use to put them away for you. Now they are mainly used for mischief.
    If that does not work ban them except for organised show an for the same periodic 5thNov or the nearest Saturday.

    If someone wants to make his own and blow their heads off, we that’s one less muddying the gene pool. :devil: :rotfl:

    ban selling them alltogether, organised displays only.

    everybody attending organised communal displays can only be good for our increasingly insular society anyway...

    We have a massive 5th Nov. display near us, sometimes it seems virtually the whole town attends, people even travel 10-20 miles... It's been a right of passage since i was a kid, and still is even today.
    One of the few remaining events left around here that still draws people of all ages/types together in the same place. :thumbsup:

    Fireworks were going off at 9.45am last Friday morning near to me! Completely ruined my planned lie-in on the first day of my two-weeks holiday time from work! :mad:

    What muppets set fireworks off during daylight anyway? This is just a complete waste of money!

    I don't agree with banning them outright, but perhaps sale 2 weeks only up untill November 5th, then once more in the week up to New Years Eve would be more appropriate.

    I love fireworks, but the morons in our society have made them a nuisance for everyone else. :rolleyes:

    Shamefully it'll probably be ppl in my age group (16-22). They probably think their gang are cool and hard or something

    Although if I met them, I'd bring them down to earth, by pointing out setting off fireworks in daylight is s-tu-p-i-d. Something they'd realise if they was in school/sixth form/work like they're meant to be at 9.45 am
