Its November 5th and across the Irish sea all over Great Britain people are heading out to watch Firework displays.
Some children wait for mummy and daddy to pull out the big box of fireworks that they purchased at the weekend in the local Asda for a few pounds and watch in amazement as the sky lights up across the neighbourhood.
Every year for the past many decades the British population have enjoyed the delight that Fireworks bring to all, all around the world cultures use fireworks to highlight amazing sporting events and celebrations.
In Ireland it would seem that we are too thick and stupid to be allowed to use fireworks and for our own safety they are banned and made illegal for us normal day to day folk to purchase.
How sad is our country?
Surely its time that the people of Ireland were allowed the same rights as those in the UK to be able to purchase fireworks. Why cant we celebrate Haloween with fireworks displays? Why cant we celebrate the New Year with Fireworks displays?
How many of us sit around the TV on New Years Eve watching Big Ben sound in the new year to Fireworks? Wouldnt it be great if we could do the same too, Firework displays all over Ireland?
Yes we can use the argument that local scum will get the fireworks and get upto all sorts of tricks with them, but the local scum appear to get their hands on fireworks anyhow, and if the UK can handle a few local yobs playing with fireworks surely we can?
Its high time the right to fireworks for people in Ireland was allowed, we are adults and we should be given the same rights as our fellow European neighbours, we would also see a benefit to the economy as people purchased fireworks for displays and festivals and home events.
Equal rights to fireworks.
