Remember, remember the 5th of November…

So admittedly there is no fake art surrounding the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605, but the anonymous letter to Monteagle has never been successfully linked to any of the named (or possibly unnamed?) conspirators in the plot. Plus there is the matter of doctored documents used to link Garnet more solidly to the plot itself. And what was Salisbury’s role in the whole matter? Lastly there is the play allegedly written by Shakespeare about the Gunpowder Plot, which was proven to be a nineteenth century forgery.

Food for thought for your Monday. So please, no burning of effigies (or buses) today, and for those of you stateside, don’t forget to vote tomorrow.
