MIND THOSE POPPIES, CITIZENS

By Pete Moore On November 12th, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Another facebook-armed twit’s been arrested, this one not for burning one, single poppy but for posting the image on facebook. Yep, it’s our old friend “malicious telecommunications”. Thanks, Tories.

Kent’s heroic constabulary report that a number of eagle-eyed citizens – give them a medal – made complaints yesterday when the terrible vision appeared. The boys in brown blue heroically and immediately swooped to protect society, detaining the dangerous criminal overnight.

Poppies are symbols of our hard-won liberties to live free of the kind of police oppression which can see you locked up for no good reason elsewhere. Learn that lesson well and mind how you go, citizens.

NO POPPIES AT WEMBLEY?

By David Vance On November 7th, 2011 at 11:02 am

The bottom line is that FIFA, the governing body of world football, has blown the whistle and told England players that they must NOT wear poppies when they play a friendly game against Spain at Wembley this coming Saturday. The players want to be able to show their respects  but do so but they are denied this;

“The Football Association are to hold further talks with Fifa in a bid to allow the England team to wear poppies on their shirts when they play Spain next Saturday. The FA had wanted players to display the Armistice Day emblem on their kit on the eve of Remembrance Sunday, but Fifa rules mean no changes can be made to official kit.”

And THAT brings me to this guy.

Remember him from yesterday?

He’s my …ahem…pal from the BBC Green Room. His name is Bishop Stephen Lowe. He was BACK on the BBC this morning, in full agreement with the Poppy ban. He thinks it wrong for the players to wear a Poppy.

Here is how I see him.
