Yes, let's remember those who died. And let's not abuse the poppy as a way to rub noses against us Irish, and the Brits did for so many years here.
I'm Irish, and I'd have no problem wearing a poppy, if I wasn't judged as being a Brit for it.
The Irish fought and died too, but only cause they couldn't get jobs as Nationalist wernt given any good jobs, they either joined a war to provide money for their family, Or get nothing. So when they joined the war, and fought for the Brits, they were moved in first, with say Welsh, Scottish, and used as bodybags to protect the English.

So let's remember the day as an end to all world wars, and not to simply rub noses up against Irish.

And once again Remembrance Day has rolled round. Hope you've all got your poppies...

Well they did the last couple of times England played on a remembrance weekend. But I'm still against the idea of even suggesting a ban.

FIFA argued that it was against the rules to display anything political, commercial or religious, but the poppy is none of those things. It's purely to show respect. And increasingly to show respect to both sides of the world wars
