This is going around on Facebook this morning. Don't know how true it is but its a scandal if it is.

*The Royal British Legion are not selling poppies in certain areas on Nov 11 this year. *This is because some minorities say that it will upset them. The poppy is a symbol of reverence for our fallen heroes of all the wars the BRITISH military have fought in. BRITAIN STAND UP AND SAY 'WE WANT THE POPPY SOLD EVERY WHERE IN THE UK'. THIS IS OUR RIGHT TO REVERE OUR FALLEN.. PLEASE RE-POST**

Poppy sellers have also been banned from some areas of Birmingham

Whats your point, morddwyd?

Sorry, service humour.

As has been said, many poppy sellers are ex-service, and only officers are called "Sir".

We both laughed at the time.
