Just spotted this in my local Tesco, seemed like a good deal to me, although i'm sure fireworks were never this expensive when i was a boy!

Great!

They're getting ever cheaper so the local shi*t-for-brains can make people's lives sheer hell for a few weeks in October/November.

The Government should just encourage people to go to public displays and then ban the domestic sale of fireworks to give everyone a break.

i agree on that front, restrict them to one night a year or even one week. having to endure them for the rest of the year is a nightmare, especially around my street!

And banning/restricting their sale makes sense how??

Especially when you consider the millions of people not messing around and having a good time with them.

Its not any more safer than doing it at home.
Once went to a display and got showered with gunpowder and also attacked by flaming lanterns.

Worst thats happened at home was one of the fireworks fell over and started shooting at us and the tree stump burnt down oh and the fence caught alight. But thats it I swear.

So the Fire Brigade got called out, which costs everyone else money, just so you can have your "fun". Thank Christ that "one of the fireworks fell over and started shooting at us" didn't involve calling out ambulances and incurring hospital costs too!

Grow up and go to a public display:p

Didnt call the fire brigade. Fence went out with a bucket of water and the tree stump well... we didnt realise it had been on fire till the morning so no point bothering them over a pile of ashes. Nothing they could do to bring it back.

hang on lets remember the real idiots....... and thats the shops that sell it to the stupid kids who go round causing misery to people, why not up the age on selling the f/works, also shut the shops down that do sell to under age kids, that will make shop owners think twice about profit b4 safety. (well its a start)

I take it you haven't had fireworks through yer letterbox like some in my area.......these f*ckwits should be made to visit a burns unit. Fireworks should only be sold to someone presenting I.D. and signing for them, with the firework cartridge having a unique code traceable to the purchaser........now that's not rocket science either!

We may think countries like America are crazy for having very liberal hand gun rules in some states, but selling explosives in supermarkets is pretty whacky by 21st Century standards of civilised society.

Public displays are the way forward. And they look so much better than sh1tty home fireworks anyway. :thumbsup:

ban knives, ban alcohol, ban cars, ban fireworks, ban bows, ban air riffles, ban the internet ban every thing this is useful or brings enjoyment to many people if a minority of users abuse them.

Wake up FFS. Nothing wrong with fireworks, its the nuggets that are abusing them that need to be dealt with.

But you are not "doing you own thing".

You're being noisy, inconsiderate feckwits who think that your own need for self-gratification is above your neighbours' right to have peace and quiet:p

My neighbours don't mind one night a year when I arrange a little firework display, just like I don't mind there occaisional late night parties.

For us sensible ones, it's once a year which brings fun and joy when acting responsible.

Oh quick, someone at the end of your road is revving the car to loudly on the way to work, at this time, quick, go get them tiger!

You seem to have trouble grasping the logic behind the objection to fireworks being available to the public.

Let's assume that you are considerate, sensible, and safe when you have your party. I have no reason to doubt you wouldn't be. However your party will, of course, be on November 5th because you are considerate and you are celebrating Guy Fawkes on the correct date. It will, of course finish by 8pm because you don’t want to disturb young kids from their sleep. And you will, of course, have told all your neighbours so that they can bring their pets in and keep them safe for the twenty or so minutes your display of cheap supermarket fireworks will last.

Your neighbours however are having a party the day before because they can't wait, some people have them the week before, some the week after, some a bit late, some very late, some when they are p1ssed and haven't got a clue what the time is.

Add to this our friends celebrating Eid at the end of September, Diwali in the middle of October (which lasts 5 days) and hopefully you can realise that just the “considerate” private parties are causing weeks and weeks of disturbance in many towns.

Then add to this the fact that kids (or sub-normal adults) get hold of fireworks and let them off at anytime of the day or night and in a dangerous way and your statement "My neighbours don't mind one night a year when I arrange a little firework display" just shows you don’t understand the extent of this problem in some places.

I have no difficulty what so ever!

Personally, it's a must to be done on the 5th every year, and yes my neighbours are aware.

Fortunatley I have no control over the other days when my neighbours or friends would like to have their parties, but if it was deemed socially irresponsible by the mass, then I would assume someone who has the power would have enforced it by now. And if I was forced to go to public displays only, then so be it!

As far as I am currently aware, you can indeed let them off when you like, so again, it's down to responsibility. I think 11 pm is the deadline too, for big celebratory days.

Bigger fish to fry if you're on your soap box mate.....one or two admittedly try to spoil or tarnish for the mass...

If your postcode is that bad - move!

Saying that something would have been banned by now if it was wrong is a flawed argument. The law is a dynamic instrument that adapts to society as it changes. Fifty years ago working class people didn’t have spare income to spend on something as frivolous as fireworks. Anti-social behaviour has increased in recent years and sadly legislation is required where previously social standards maintained an acceptable level of behaviour. The need for control is demonstrated by the relatively recent introduction of The Fireworks Act 2003, The Fireworks Regulations 2004, The Fireworks (Amendment) Regulations 2004, The Fireworks (Safety) Regulations 1997, The Fireworks (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 2004. Some would argue that removing the source of the fireworks themselves would have achieved a more desirable outcome.

You can’t “let them off whenever you like” for the same reason you can’t play music, operate noisy machinery or cause any other environmental pollution whenever you like.

Regulation 7 of the 2004 Act prohibits persons from using adult fireworks during night hours (namely between 11 pm and 7 am) but exceptions allow such use until 1 am on the nights of the Chinese New Year, Diwali and New Year's Eve and until midnight on 5th November. However the Environmental Protection Act 2003, and various other statutory instruments relating to noise could be used if you are causing a nuisance.

Where I live is just fine thanks, but I don’t live near someone that thinks he can let fireworks off whenever he likes!

I wouldn't know how you'd stand with that Act over your firework fortnight....could be a busy period from what I gather.

I found that a bit strange also, no restriction on dates for public use, and 11pm, anyway....Roll on the fifth, mine will be between 7 - 9.

The EPA is not likely to be used for one offs, but frequent use of fireworks from the same premises could be investigated and a Noise Abatement Notice then served.

The reason public events are not time restricted is that they can only occur under a licence and the licence (issued by the local authority) will condition the time of the display.

I hope you have fun on the 5th :-D

If you ban them, how will the local drug dealers signal that they have new stock in?

That said, it must be hard for the poor junkies on bonfire night as they keep knocking on the wrong doors expecting to get their stuff ;)
