The foiling of the gunpowder plot to blow up the House of Commons more than 400 years ago is celebrated by setting off fireworks tonight
Guy Fawkes hid 36 barrels of gunpowder under parliament on 5 November 1605.
He and his fellow conspirators were discovered a few hours before the state opening of Parliament, foiling their plot to blow up King James I, and members of the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
Democracy saved from an act of terrorism. Never changes does it. Fair enough, he was the king of the Scots and looked like a girl, but a commissions a wicked (not literally) bible.
Therefore, what did we learn from this? Never give a catholic 36 barrels of gun power cos someone is bound to get hurt. on that note, please stay safe tonight...
