Sometimes I wear one, sometimes I don't. It generally comes down to whether it's convenient for me to get one at any point.

I never really pay attention to whether anyone else is wearing one or not.

If you don’t want to wear one then don’t , if you do then do. You seem to get really worked up about this, in fact your making the same sort of noise as the people complaining about not wearing poppies, you are part of the problem as well

Not worked up at all chap, just find the ever growing furore around it all absolutely flabbergasting.

I don’t wear one (never have - not for any pilitical reason, just think it’s a bit pointless) and feel uncomfortable in forced situations where people take some sort of weird pride about wearing one. Couldn’t give a f*** about people who wear them though, or think theres some kind of moral justice to wearing them.

Cannot stand those freaks or the ones who think it’s pua cool to reject it.

One of my favourite times of year, along with when Tesco ban Christmas and Cadbury ruin Easter. Bet James McClean's f***ing dreading it.

Good choice for a favourite, since we only have to take our England flags down every other summer.

As far as I can remember it wasn’t a discussion point and there was no anger either way until a few years ago. It’s genuinely fascinating* how it’s evolved.

*to sad c***s like me admittedly.

Maybe it’s just selective memory like, but there’s definitely a few times in the past half decade where I’ve noticed a more forced poppy agenda.

People alive today had friends and family killed in WW2 (and obviously family members killed in recent wars) so it’s hard to say anything in risk of hurting who legitimately have a connection to it, but it’s become a proper grieving contest.

:lol: Like f*** does he not revel in this s***. Only thing that keeps him relevant.

In the Hans camp. When I was too young to have a choice on the Church front, I'd always be made to wear one. Now I just... don't. :dontknow: Will probably sound heartless but it just feels like there's an anniversary for everything now and it just wears me the f*** out tbh.

such a weird thing for some people and media to get so worked up about, there has to be something better for them to do with their time.

It's a bit ironic that the zealots condemning people for not wearing a poppy are usually the same people ready to jump into another war at the drop of a hat.

I wear one but doesn’t bother me if other people don’t. Hate the people that try to be different though and complain for no reason.

Remembrance weekend to remember (wey!) for me this year as I am on parade for the Lord Mayors Show in London.
