UPDATE: The picture was taken in Leytonstone yesterday by friendly Dick P reader. The Evening Standard published this today.

WTF is "Fireworks"? The new PC name for "Guy Fawkes Night"? I suppose you can't call it "Bonfire Night" any more because bonfires are bad, they contribute to MMGW. (I have heard this said on the BBC - the neopuritans stop at nothing to take the fun out of life.)

meh! the local Lidl has this rule in force all year round, as does one of my friends' ASDA.

I do wish they'd leave us alone .. .. ..

I'd tell the owners of the store how disappointed I am that they didn't tell the friendly neighbourhood police safety team, or whatever they call themselves, to go piss up a rope. What a pointless exercise anyway. Even assuming the little shits whose behaviour has prompted this don't just get eggs and flour from home all it'll achieve is that the little shites will use mud and stones instead. What's happening here is that the police are too inept or lazy to tackle the problem kids and are nagging businesses into doing their dirty work for them in a roundabout and ineffective way.

Maybe they don't want to go giving people ideas, especially when their MP might still be arguing the toss about how much money, if any, to give back.

I doubt the sort of homes these little darlings come from contain anything like as normal an item as cooking ingredients.

They would just have to keep themselves amused lobbing frozen chicken dippers and pizza at windows...

JuliaM, that's why chav mums go to Iceland!

Aha, that's why there are crowds of kids hanging round supermarkets asking older-looking people whether they can pop in and buy some flour for them.

And cakes aren't cooked ... they grow at Asda.

I once wore a horror mask and trilby hat, and had a chainsaw (minus chain) in the hall when the little fuckers called round.

Knock-knock. "Trick or treat!"

Don mask and hat, fire up chainsaw, open door and open up the chainsaw full pelt. Deafening.

One boy shat himself. Mother threatened to call police, left my property sceaming abuse. Can't think why.

They've never been back.

Trick or fucking treat indeed. Bob-a-Job was far more English.

Meanwhile another school in Hertfordshire has banned pupils from bringing in homemade cakes on their birthday because it would breach the schools " Healthy Eating " status.
