    what I saw of it was astonishing.

    Begs the quetion about what we are going to do in 2012

    Can't help but feel that what with the 'health and saftey executive' , the bean counters who measure everything in the oportunity cost of how many hospitals could have been opened for... and the fact that generally we are pretty naff at these things we will end up with Ken Barlow from Coronation street waving a sparkler whilst wearing protective goggles and gloves.

    and the fact that generally we are pretty naff at these things we will end up with Ken Barlow from Coronation street waving a sparkler whilst wearing protective goggles and gloves.

    I can't see how we could possibly match the display I just saw. <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    I'm guessing you mean astonishing in a good way?

    We've not watched any....saving it tonight for "family night"

    Guess I'll really have something to watch then?

    Maybe we should just stick to the sort of display that we do well, such as Trooping the Colour.

    I'm watching the live streaming on the BBC website. It's pretty impressive stuff.
