As we approach Guy Fawkes night, Nanny does her best to spoil the event by trying to stop people letting off fireworks and holding bonfires.
However, Tower Hamlets council have gone one better, by banning Guy Fawkes night in favour of holding a £75,000 fireworks party celebrating an obscure Indian folk tale.
The knobheads in the council will hold an event called "The Emperor and The Tiger" on November 5.
Tower Hamlets Council held a Guy Fawkes-themed fireworks party last year.
Around 23,000 people turned up at Victoria Park to watch a huge model of the Houses of Parliament burn, marking the 400th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot.
However, rather than repeating a proven success the knobheads in the council say:
"We did Guy Fawkes last year."
The borough will instead celebrate a folk tale from the Bengali community which tells the story of the 'Moghul Emperor, the Wise Man and the Guardian of the Jungle'.
A 12ft long mechanical Bengal Tiger, operated by four people will pace a giant catwalk as fire lights up a 'forest' to the sound of Bangla drummers and dancers.
The PR blurb says:
"The greedy Emperor wants his taxes, and the people must pay."
How very appropriate!
John Midgley, spokesman for the Campaign Against Political Correctness, said the council's decision would "explode in their faces".
"This is blatantly ridiculous.
It's almost too insane for words.
There's a time and a place for everything and November 5 is for Bonfire Night.
It's time for common sense and for people
to tell bureaucrats that politically correct actions
like these undermine our historic occasions
and harm community relations.
This is a massive own goal."
Evidently knobheads and twats are in charge in Tower Hamlets.
