Default 12th/Bonfire night

you build a bonfire, light it have a party attack the fire brigade if they attempt to put the fire out and a week later you get on to the local talk shows complaining that the council have not come out to clear up your rubbish.ITS A GREAT COUNTRY WE LIVE IN.

Who actually pays for the pallets that they burn?

They must burn scores of thousands of them.

They're not even broken pallets, it's a stupid waste of perfectly useful materials.

Not that you could reason with those loyalist goons.

As long as they're done safely and cleared up afterwards what's the problem

The ones that are approved by Cork City council are cleaned up by CCC and are a nod to a very longstanding tradition. I think the CCC are to be complimented for getting out in front of this and without being killjoys making sure things are done properly.

If only the guys in the WBN did the same and let the local councils monitor their bonfires instead of forcing them to be built next to residential areas well within the safety exclusion zones set out by the Fire Service. There wouldn't be any offensive slogans or flags or photos on they pyres either.
