This is because yesterday's picture may not have been the clearest.

"Remember remember the 5th of November, gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."

So, for non-UK readers, it was a reference to the burning of a human effigy that will take place this weekend on this bonfire. Tho' I understand he's not called 'Guy' anymore, he's called Osama.

Sorry to have been even more obscure than usual. But just because I'm on a roll:

Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to ______. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.
