The Health and Safety Executive have been made aware of murmurations of discontent as winter approaches and been alerted to the fact that firework sales, which are usually quite high at this time of year, have risen by such an extent, they have concluded that something is afoot.
In an effort to reduce the amount of Parliament exploding related injuries they believe may occur and as a general arse covering exercise, they have released a special "Guy Fawkes Night revolutionaries safety awareness" pamphlet, to alert any would be rebel scum to the dangers of gunpowder plot based scenarios to amateur revolutionaries.
Snippets released show advice such as "Light the government at arm's length with a taper and stand well back. Never return to a government once it has been shit..." and of course the usual warnings for our four legged friends. "...and don't forget to keep your pets indoors during times of the year when governments are likely to go off."
