It’s started: every year for 7 days prior to November 05th, we are subjected to burnt pets, exploding mail boxes, fires injuring people & destroying property.
This is caused by the sale of fireworks, so New Zealand can celebrate an event that took place before the country was even discovered or settled by Europeans. Why the hell would a nation 11600 miles away from the UK want to celebrate the saving of its parliament on Guy Fawkes night November 05 ??
I mean most kiwi’s couldn’t even tell you what the story behind the celebration was, let alone tell you the reason why they are letting off fireworks WTF ????
Isn’t it time we dumped the colonial past & moved on ?
Bring on the republic I say.
