Poppy-mania

FIFA are wrong to ban England and Scotland from wearing the poppy during their match on Friday. It’s a deeply significant symbol within the two countries. 

People are wrong if they get offended by people not wearing poppies, and feel the need to attack them.

Companies and people need to stop producing bigger and bigger poppies in order to try and show the “most respect”.

Poppy makers should stop making poppies designed to fall off and make you buy more than one. 

The whole issue needs to be put to bed once and for all.

If you wear a poppy because you are honouring all fallen soldiers in all wars and trying your best to prevent future wars then great. You are using the symbol for what it should be used for.

If you wear one out of fear of abuse from poppy wearers, then stop. It’s your decision. You can honour the dead in more ways than wearing a red flower on your chest. 

That’s such an important point.

Some people don’t wear poppies.

It’s their choice.

To the Daily Mail, Daily Express, Sun, Star and all the folk who openly criticise those who don’t, I have a message for you:

Get over it. 

There are bigger fish to fry in this world. 

(Although attacking judges is not one of them).
