Soo bonfirenight parties are bad things in your book if they take place in the woods? Wink

Although granted they could have sorted out the parking a little better Tongue

Who mentioned bonfires??? The article didn'tSmile

What the article did mention, was the fact that the dancing went on through the night.

Do you suppose they refreshed themselves with the odd glass of Tizer & a WoodbineWink

The point is that as usual, a minority of people caused the vast law abiding majority to suffer (The road was closed because of their indifference to road safety and the parking laws)

Also as mentioned above, I presume they were all allowed to drive away without any collars been felt

Why shouldn't the common people get away with the occasional misdemeanour?

+1 for me, may not mention bonfires, but I'm sure there was one somewhere. Shame the parking got out of hand, but if it wasn't a ticketed event the organisers would have found it difficult to estimate the turnout and thus estimate parking requirements. And if the police chose not to ticket every illegally parked car then that's their choice.

That's a bit like saying it will get dark before morning - Somewhere there would have been one, especially as it was Nov 5th.

I understand your post now Tomcat ... BUT had the police dealt with everyone at that time of night when they really need to be policing city centres we would have had everyone moaning about them being better employed locking up rapists and murderers, where did they all come from, 10, cars, 3 riot vans, 20 cops etc etc etc as the usual moronic comments go .... Yes the parking may have been bad and every single vehicle parked on a road is technically causing some form of obstruction and if there werent lines on the roads it would be a legal minefield and a complete waste of time and overreaction to ticket everyone, or many at least, for wilfull obstruction. So common sense prevailed and a good time was had by many and a few people inconvenienced for one night ...
