what happened to Guy Fawkes night???
Fair question. Of course that's also the 5th November.
In the context of this event, being held on the 4th, I think the question we really need to be asking is what sort of political correctness has led Southwark Council
to airbrush the 582nd anniversary of Joan of Arc's liberation of Saint-Pierre-le-Moûtier from the history books.
It will also be the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the University of Washington. I will be shocked - shocked - if that is not incorporated in some way into at least the parade, and ideally the fireworks.
