The Queen’s Birthday long weekend is coming up here in Canberra, and that means that fireworks can be legally sold and exploded all over Canberra…Oh the joy of it all, constantly being interrupted by the passing lunatics trying to blow up parts of Canberra, having to comfort pets that are easily frightened by the constant banging.
I don’t mind the mass public fireworks that occur at New Years and Canberra Day, they are nice planned events that involve a bunch of experts letting off fireworks in a controlled manner near a large amount of water…But the mass lunatic asylum that is allowed to roam Canberra and terrorise letter boxes, pets and sleeping residents is very very annoying…especially when they continue doing it for the weeks after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend…and the week or so before it as well.
The worst part is, the Police aren’t around to enforce the law, and they certainly aren’t going to rush to the scene of a firework explosion and work out who was responsible…Why? Because they have no way of catching the perpetrators who could very easily be in another suburb by the time the Police arrive.
