Including the planning,and the actual cost of the firework display came to a staggering £1.65 million pounds! :o :gmc:

On top of this must be added the free travel on the Underground and Buses etc.

Only know figures etc as one of my (nutter) pyrotechnics brothers was involved
as this year a British company was used, for the first time, being Kimbolton Fireworks (admittedly using mainly Chinese sourced) but English electronics and computer designed ignition systems.

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

A mere bagatelle when you take into consideration how much will be pissed up against the wall for the Olympics. At least this didn't command an entrance fee to view. IMHO

hmmm, only £1.65m? i heared £1.8m :gmc:

youve got to think, if they went to the local supermarket and spent 50p on fireworks, youd be complaining it was rubbish. so stop complaining! :D
that amount of money couldnt have been better spent, not even on lowering the fuel price by a couple of pence for a few days....
i wouldnt be new years with out a stupidly expensive display anyway, and the final few seconds were really impressive 8-)

A pity the link isn't valid for France (and presumably for anywhere else in 'continental Europe') if anyone has any suggestions about watching...

That's my pleasure. :) Got to keep our foreign chums happy. :mrgreen:

Bit more spectacular than the one we went to on Guy Fawkes night in Peterborough. Just a bit. :D

Yes, but just a little bit. ;)

Sparing me the use of a slow proxy, very kind of you.
