Burning BlairLadies, gentlemen, small boys and girls,

I’ve never felt driven to burn anyone in effigy before, but I would like to invite you to join me on my own personal voyage of discovery as I attempt to burn Tony Blair in effigy this Guy Fawkes night.

I feel this will be an educational, cathartic and ultimately rewarding experience.

Will my local community be fearful of boat-rocking? Does it harbour any fervent Blairites?

What steps will these people take to prevent expression via incineration?

I need to know the answers to these questions almost as much as I need to build a Blair/Guy with my own two hands, watch it take shape and – hopefully – look on in satisfaction as it burns to a cinder.

Watch this space for ongoing reports… and please do join me by building, burning and blogging the results yourself.

Cheers all.
