The Gunpowder Plot and the Origin of Guy Fawkes Night!

As a latter day Guy, I've always been interested in this story! I have to say, I've never identified with Guy Fawkes or his motives, so it's always fun to have a party on 5th November in remembrance of the day the powers of government discovered The Gunpowder Plot!
Guy Buncombe (Editor)

The Gunpowder Plot of 1605, organised by Robert Catesby, Thomas Wintour, Robert Wintour, Guy Fawkes, John Wright, Christopher Wright, Robert Keyes, Thomas Percy, John Grant, Ambrose Rookwood, Sir Everard Digby, Francis Tresham, Thomas Bates, was a plot to assassinate King James I of England and restore catholicism to England.
The 13 conspirators planned to place a hoard of gunpowder in an undercroft directly underneath the House of Lords. The plotters believed it to be the perfect place to hide explosives, as the undercroft had gone unused for some time. As October came and the plot was finalised, concerns arose that there may be Catholics present in Parliament when the device was to explode. On Saturday 26 October William Parker, 4th Baron Monteagle, Francis Tresham's brother-in-law, received an anonymous letter warning him not to attend Parliament. On Friday 1 November the King was shown the letter, and it was later decided that a search of the Houses of Parliament would be undertaken on Monday.
According to the King's account, searchers discovered a servant nearby a large pile of firewood in the undercroft on Monday 4 November. He informed the searchers that the firewood belonged to his master, Thomas Percy. The servant's true identity was Guy Fawkes. As the searches had so far failed to locate anything untoward the King demanded that a more thorough search must commence. Shortly after midnight a search party under the command of Thomas Knyvet discovered Fawkes in the undercroft. Fawkes, who identified himself as John Johnson, was placed under arrest, and his possessions searched. He was discovered to be carrying a pocket watch, matches, and torchwood. The search team then unearthed barrels of gunpowder hidden beneath the pile of firewood.
Fawkes, still using the alias John Johnson, claimed when interrogated that he had acted alone. "Johnson" was relocated to the Tower of London on 6th November, where he was to be tortured, after the King gave his consent for the torture to take place. On 7 November Fawkes confessed that he had not acted alone, and the full extent of the plot was unearthed. The plotters were all executed, aside from Catesby and Percy, who had already been killed amidst their refusal to surrender, however the bodies were exhumed and their heads placed on spikes outside the Houses of Lords.
In January 1606 the Thanksgiving Act was passed, and commemorating the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot became an annual event. Coincidentally the celebrations for the pagan festival of Samhain, which included the burning of the "old guy" on a bonfire, were held about this time of the year, and so other traditions, such as ringing of church bells and lighting fireworks were added soon after the act was passed and the "guy" became a personification of Guy Fawkes. The act remained in place until 1859.Despite the repeal of the act taking place over 150 years ago, Guy Fawkes Night still remains a yearly custom throughout Britain.

Win Out at Interviews: Golden Tip No.1!

Remember when you were a kid? Or when you were the parent of a young kid? "Mummy/Daddy! Can I have an ice-cream? I want an ice-cream!"

Kids don't mess around; they cut straight to the chase, and ask for what they want. When did you ever hear a kid say "I look forward to receiving a treat from you, Mummy!" ?

Well, here's your golden tip for winning out at interviews: employers are always more interested in people who really want their job. So if you're at an interview and you like what you've heard, and you've decided that this is a job you'd really like, end the interview by saying:

"Mr Employer, I've really enjoyed meeting you and learning about your organisation and this position. I'd very much like to work for you, and I'm sure I will be very successful for you! Can you tell me, have I got the job?"

if you feel that's coming on a little too strongly, you could substitute "When can I start work for you?" for the last sentence.

Employers almost always draw interviews to a close by saying something like "Have you got anything else you'd like to say or ask, before we finish?" which gives you a perfect opportunity to end the interview properly and effectively, by closing the sale!

However, this is hard to do. We are English after all, and English people just aren't that pushy are they?

Well, generally the English are a demure lot, but here at Seltek, all our experience over 25 years of running a business, arranging thousands of interviews, and listening to employers' interview feedback thousands of times over, has led us to this one immutable and inescapable conclusion:

Employers are always more interested in people who really want their job.

For more tips and advice on how to win out at interviews, visit our website:http://www.seltekconsultants.co.uk/TipsForSuccess.htm

Seltek's Unique Career Management Service!

You're in a job, but you're strongly motivated to leave. You have skills, knowledge and experience which you know will interest other employers. Maybe it's a lot, maybe not so much, but you definitely have something to offer. You're looking for a new employer who will truly value you. How do you find a new position and make that quantum leap forward in your career?

You probably know the companies that you would like to talk to. And of course, you could contact them yourself. But would you feel confident enough to do this? How could you be sure that word does not get back to your current employer? Could you sell yourself strongly enough to convince your prospect to meet you, especially as they probably won't have a suitable opening at the time? Do you have the time to carry out this process effectively?

Well relax! Seltek can do this for you. For people who have a track record of success, we are very happy to conduct a highly focused, targeted marketing campaign on your behalf. We will agree with you a list of target employers and we will make contact with the highest level decision-maker that we can - usually the managing director. And we will sell you! Using skills developed over years, our consultants will stand a much better chance of getting you in front of the people you'd like to meet, and we'll act as an 'honest broker' throughout the process, negotiating position, duties, prospects and of course a favourable remuneration package on your behalf.

All this will be done confidentially, and you'll be kept informed regularly as to progress, and the response from each of the targets.

Put simply: this works!

If you have not made contact with Seltek before, contact Guy Buncombe, Director, on 01279 657716 or email guy@seltekconsultants.co.uk

If you are known to us, contact your consultant, and ask him or her to give you further details about how we can find you that great career move you've been dreaming of!
