Public happy to leave the sale of fireworks to a shop with a 2 week lease


The public is looking forward to buying a range of temperamental Chinese explosives today from a shop which will be completely empty and ready To Let again by the morning.

The shop, which suddenly opened up a week before Halloween, so that it could sell fireworks to people wearing hoodies, will have disappeared like a travelling circus by nightfall.

But pop-up, firework shop owner, Peter Thape (46) denies that his business is a del boy operation, run by shadowy chancers, and occasional duckers and divers.

‘All the firework shop owners are Judges that take two weeks holiday just before bonfire night,’ said The Right Honourable Judge Thape.

‘All the money from the sale of fireworks goes to local children’s charities,’ added Judge Thape.
