Some Lunatic

Mubashir Neighbourly Lead from Mount Roskill

Hope all cars on the Mount Albert road from Honolulu cafe up until three kings are safe as saw one lunatic wearing a yellow tshirt running on the pavement banging either a stick or something like a belt on cars and fencing in the neighborhood.

Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.

Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
