Lying In The Gutters – Remembered, Remembered, The Fifth Of Novembered 2017

Posted by November 5, 2017 Comment

Four hundred years ago, the Catholic terrorist was thwarted in his attempt to blow up the Houses Of Parliament when he and his cohorts were discovered in the cellars of Parliament with enough barrels of gunpowder about to be lit, enough to destroy the place. In the centuries since, the fifth of November is celebrated by bonfires and fireworks across the land, with effigies of Guy Fawkes being burnt on top of the pyre.

This weekend, it seems that the Houses Of Parliament has done a far better job of destroying itself than Guy Fawkes ever did. Looks like I’ll have a hell of a cartoon to draw for the Guido Fawkes website tomorrow. Until then… what have you been reading this week? When you weren’t enjoying Thor: Ragnarok?
