It's 11.25pm on the Mornington Peninsula ... I'm safely tucked in my house, with the TV on, Mr S is asleep, and I'm quietly sweltering (it was 34 deg C last time I checked). While more police than you could shake a stick at are supposed to be 'locking down' the general area. All public feastivities are cancelled to discourage young visitors although how you could keep them away from the beach on such a night is a bit of a mystery to me. There was rioting in nearby Rye last year, so no repeat required. But there is enough illegal fireworks currently being let off to be make anyone happy! Bit premature, but that's the youth of today for you.
