This year the poppy is to incorporate civilians and victims of terrorist
attacks not just military personnel.

Oh FFS, that shite is never-ending.

What about the lads in Donegal who hit a tree and died there last year?

Ok so, them too.

What about the crowd who were killed by the coal slide in Wales in 196*?

Go on so..........

So not just military personnel but some of their victims too. Will Soldier F be wearing a poppy and if so will it be to commemorate his fallen comrades or his victims?

Wonder if those victims' families and those who empathise with them will opt to wear the poppy.

If they do then good luck to them, but if they don't then hopefully the poppy-fascists won't be given free reign to criticise them as has been happening so often in recent years.

Shane coleman on newstalk this morning said what turns him off the whole thing
is how it is so much in your face in britain and if you refuse to wear it you are villified, frank feehan fg said he can fully understand why Derry nationalists dont wear it,

Good points!

Maybe some of them should wear the Easter Lilly

A poignant salad to all the fallen.
