Remember Remember
This blurred image was taken during an evening’s walk in Abingdon this evening. There were lots of fireworks.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

Guy Fawkes was a Catholic in the days when opinion was polarised between Catholics and Protestants. The fifth of November was set as a day to remember his attempt to blow up King and parliament and it has not been forgot.
Remember Remember
There have been attacks on the government and the Houses of Parliament since Guy Fawkes’ in 1605. A bomb exploded under the car of Airey Neave, the MP of the Abingdon, in 1979.
