I bought my poppy this morning.
For those who don’t know, the poppy appeal raised funds for the Royal British Legion who help support war veterans. Whether or not you support current British foreign policy (and I for one do not), you have to remember that it’s not the soldiers who made the decision to invade.
Besides, it’s not all about Iraq and Afghanistan. There are still many people alive who fought in WWII and even a few old souls from WWI. Many of these need help and the RBL helps provide that.
So go and buy a poppy. They’re not only for news readers and politicians.
