Ed by pointless English history I mean the event that is in question. Guido Fawkes (his full name) was a failed terrorist. There are far bigger and life altering examples to be taken from history than a failed terrorist plot. What about the suicide bomber that accidentally blew himself up in some public toilets a few years ago? All this comes down to is miserable and selfish people who don't like that fact that people can go out and have a bit of fun. It sickens me that the way of the states always swings by in a minority (of the population) favour. Take Sunday trading for example, I only know one person who's against the idea, everyone else I know is for Sunday trading, what happens when it goes to the states thanks to a relgious nutter and 1600 lazy people signing a petition set up by a retired man! I'm here to stand up for the majority. That's what a democracy is supposed to be!
