Well, with November nearly over, it's time to reveal who this month's picks are for the ever-growing Newsmakers Hall of Fame...
Guy Fawkes... of gunpowder plot fame who gets burned in effigy every Nov. 5th
Tony Blair... who has also been burned in effigy on several occasions, and most recently burned by failing to get the EU presidency.
Here's an old picture of Guy heading for the bonfire...
Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot ;
I know of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'Twas his intent.
To blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below.
Poor old England to overthrow.
By God's providence he was catch'd,
With a dark lantern and burning match
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, let the bells ring
Holloa boys, Holloa boys, God save the King!
