Firework Terrorism and Hibs beating Hearts!!!!

We have had lots of problems in Camberwell with youth gangs using fireworks as weapons and we have a 3 week period when local people are terrorised by them.

Local shops are illegally selling fireworks and we caught a shop red handed and are are now prosecuting but i do wonder if it is now time to legislate against the public sale of fireworks outside of organised events? It sounds extreme but these large fireworks are being used as weapons in the inner city and whilst I am sure that the current Private members Bill will fail, I hope that time is running out for the public sale of fireworks!

Hibs meanwhile created some fireworks of their own kicking Hearts out of the Scottish League Cup. With Rangers and Celtic out as well I may well have an appointment to keep at Hampden Park early in 2007!!!
