    indeed, its what they fought and died for. Unbelievable the cluelessness of some people.

    I just wondered why Brian ODriscall feels it is ok for him not to wear a poppy and show his respect to all members of our armed forces past and present !!!!!
    DISGUSTING !!!
     

    Perhaps his thoughts and respect run a little deeper than wearing an artificial poppy once a year; (as if this is meant to 'show his respect' for something).

    These pseudo-respect agenda gets on my wick when it starts being policed. What business is it of yours WHO wears a poppy?

    It's not compulsory to wear a poppy. But if you feel so bad about why don't you slip him a white feather?

    Of course it could simply be that Brian is simply an Irishman and does not feel like any Frenchman, German, Syrian etc that he needs to wear what is essentially a British symbol of remembrance.

    I have not seen it has been made compulsory to wear a poppy, even if you are on the box.

    Always interesting to see how easily people are goaded into responses by some classic piece of message board wind uppery. The clues are generally: the obligatory misspelling of the accused person's name, the liberal use of exclamation marks (here we have a relatively self-restrained 8), capital letters naturally, and the similarly mandatory use of the word 'disgusting'. OP is to be congratulated on posting a textbook wind up and, unfortunately, a few have risen to the bait on this occasion.
