Gandalf Appraises Milennium Fireworks Celebrations - Canoe

Who better than Gandalf to judge a fireworks display?
In an article about how Britain is coping with the costs and let-down of its Millennium New Year's celebration, Canoe asks Middle-earth's own pyrotechnic's expert to judge who had the world's best fireworks display.

In a further blow to British pride, it was generally believed London's grandiose plans to usher in 2000 were upstaged by their European rivals in Paris, where the Eiffel Tower outshone Big Ben.

"For fireworks spectacle, our highest marks went to Paris where the erect Eiffel Tower exploded on and on," the actor Sir Ian McKellen said when asked of his review of the night's festivities.
