Bearing in mind the enthusiasm of some of the list users for Nov 5th, bear
in mind that Guy & his associates were out to protest against oppression of
Catholics & in support of proportional representation in place of the first
past the post method of voting that is still in use and has kept minority
Tory governments in power for most of my lifetime (which is a scary thought
when you consider that I'll be 30 next April...)
Burning an effigy of this man is not a pleasant thing & I wonder whether we
should be out to perpetuate this practise. It doesn't matter whether you
agree or disagree with his ideas, I just think that effigy burning is not a
cool thing in general, especially if it draws attention away from Samhain.
have fun, kids...
