    Every year on the 5th of November the UK burns an effigy of a 412 year-old terrorist. Should it be replaced with an effigy of Bin Laden or an ISIS leader instead?

    If it's a tradition then I don't think so.Real identity doesn't really mean much in these cases, just what it signifies.

    Beside what did Bin Laden ever do to UK?

    On another forum the toss up was between De Valera and Gerry Adams / Martin McGuiness . I'm guessing Ulster scum were the admin there. Paisley was hailed as saviour there .Wonder if this @BMD chap is a member there too ?!

    Perhaps there should be a separate day for it too then, like 7th of July. Or maybe next year we just burn Sadiq Khan in July and see how it goes down.

    You are ill-equipped to use the word 'chap'. In short, never seen so much crap.

    Its about the tradition and the values it represents. If this is not the case and it goes as a personality contest then I would much rather want Ravan to be replaced by Rahul on Dusherra.

    Nope, he's a jack-ass, just like Jerry Adams. NI has an abundance of the species Jackius Assicus sadly.

    Briatain cannot hide centuries of oppression against freedom fighter buy calling him terrorist. So Guy Fawkes should continue. but Churchill is a great choice to replace him.
