Glorification of Terrorism

Since so many asked, Guido took Miss Fawkes and Mrs Fawkes to the Zoo to see the monkeys on 5/11. Sadly Guy the Gorilla is no longer there. It is a bit tricky for Guido at this time of year under the terms of the new Terrorism Bill. The creation of a new offence of the “glorification” of terror – for people who “praise or celebrate” terrorism makes life a bit complicated. So if, as I do, you celebrate the valiant attempt by Catholic freedom fighters to blow up parliament and the tyrants in it, you face arrest. No need for a trial, 28 days in jail without charge is the new way. Guido at least had a trial in 1605…

Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
If we don’t need trials, maybe we no longer need the Old Bailey? See and enjoy the fireworks
