The BBC tells me that most people are so poor they can hardly afford a slice of bread and dripping & salt or even a chip barm (now they ARE decent snacks!) ....so who's buying all these expensive fireworks? Answers on a postcard to dalek.
Paid a visit to Hornchurch on Sat and went to Sainsburys just out of curiosity to look at the price of the fireworks.
The big multishot ones were £75 or two for £130!
Ad that to the usual stuff and your looking at least a couple of hundred smackers.
Got laughed when I asked for a box of penny bangers!
Yes and one of the most macabre sponsorships down the years is booze makers giving dosh to F1.
Great stuff 24 blokes doing 200 mph and hey ho lets advertise spirits in the process.
I'm sure Lewis Hamilton our most successful driver has a few shots of Johnnie Walker prior to each race!
Talking of fag sponsorship correct me if I'm wrong but I believe F1 only got shot of it about 10 years ago.
And thats sometime after dear old Bernie Ecclestone kept badgering the politicians at the time to keep it going for as long as possible!
I used to go to Silverstone every year for about 10 years practice days and race day. The cigarette girls were the highlight of the days very attractive giving gifts, I did not smoke but took the gifts for others. I think it was a world wide decree to stop cigarette sponsorship.
Wait a minute.
Cant you see the advantage of a firework display on the park?
It could be one of distinguished Havering cabinet members turn up to light the bonfire.
Now if they found themselves ON the bonfire then it could quite easily be regarded as a case of mistaken identity "sorry officer I thought the guy got up and walked".
Actually thats a good idea for another Havering money making scam oh scheme.
Ramsey Wallace White (both of them) Dervish Rosser could all sit on a park bench and kids could stand behind them asking for cash. 0.00001 of a penny for the guy please!
I took Little Miss D1 to the display, and was fairly impressive if very repetitive.
Went with a little school mate of hers and her dad.
I would however be very peed off if the 20 minute display was bankrolled by the council taxpayer.
Does anyone know this for sure.
I'd vote for putting on the bonfire. Just seen a reply he sent to a neighbour - he's on his last legs, poor old cunt. He sent my neighbour a reply meant for someone else! How much does he get in expenses?
