BLOG #93 - THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON INN, DANBY, ESK VALLEY

 


 
Remember,
Remember,
The …..

I forget the rest.

A giant effigy of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong went up in flames last night as part of one of the biggest bonfire parties in the UK.

Armstrong, who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for alleged doping offences, was chosen as this year's celebrity guy at the Edenbridge Bonfire Society display in Kent, pipping the likes of Jimmy Savile and Chancellor George Osborne to the dubious honour after suggestions from members of the public.

Unlike his career, which has already crashed and burned, the effigy of Armstrong went out with a bang last night as fireworks shot from his 30ft high body which was stuffed with oil soaked newspapers.


The effigy came complete with a 'Jim Fixed It For Me' medallion and a sign which read 'For Sale, Racing bike no longer required'.
