It really is about time that fireworks were banned for sale to the general public. They are essentially explosives and every year, people misuse them and are injured. Just look at the campaigns, year after year, telling people not to misuse them and what happens? Apart from council organised events, it's time fireworks were removed from sale.
I'm getting on now, but every year for more than fifty odd years you read of someone, politician or otherwise, suggesting that selling fireworks to the public be banned.
Forget it, ain't going to happen, if someone wants to buy them, there'll always be someone who is willing to sell them.
It's like this cockamamy Spring forward and Fall back with the clocks, someone, (quite rightly IMO), every year says that it is BS, but then the Scottish farmers are mentioned, and it's back to situation normal.
