Was 2019 the last year of fireworks in the UK?

November 7, 2019
Guy Faulks Poll finds 54% of people in the UK want to ban the sales of fireworks.


The news coverage has been all about banning firework sales, because they scare animals and are felt to be dangerous, but what do people really think?


MOBOPINIONS asked 336 people “Should the sale of fireworks be banned in the UK?”

Of those who expressed an opinion, 54% were in favour of a ban- 31% for banning sales to private individuals, and another 23% for a total ban.

Among ages 18 to 24, there were similar observations: about 55% in favour of the ban, but between 25 to 44, more than 52% were opposed to the ban.

There was a disparity between Men and Women- 60% of Women were supportive of a ban versus 49% of Men.


The responses were collected on the 5th & 6th of November within 159 mobile apps, with a margin of error of 5%.
