"Today is Bonfire Day; a day to be long remembered. How many of us, I wonder, now wish that the gun powder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament by Guy Fawkes had been successful? Would we be any worse governed if the Queen and not the 'Honorable' Members of Parliament was now in charge of our destiny? I bet that she would pull us out of a Europe, in which we paid everything into and got back nothing!
For all you children out there with access to reading e-books or having them read to you, why not read about Annie's Guy Fawkes from my Action Annie stories for 5-9-year olds, called 'Annie's Bonfire'. I'll guarantee that you like it. The late Dame Catherine Cookson did, as she and her husband Tom funded the publication of all my twelve 'Action Annie' stories a number of years before they died and we allowed all book-sale profits to go to the charity Mencap."
