Interesting.

Future soldier. Never again. But there's always another. Funny how that message is never to the forefront of Rememberance Day. So, if people aren't saying/demanding "never again", isn't that them allowing it to happen again? And they'll keep crawling back to the cenotaph decade after decade, repeating this over and over.

Strange cause he’s his own man and not a sheep?
but if he wants to get a paying job on telly he has to wear it . he can be his own man in his own house , not on the BBCs time.
bad and all as poppies are I lost all repect for the FAIs team when they won black arm bands for the Diana spenser .
Really showed what side their bread is buttered on

James McClean has God on his side.

'A top Church of Ireland cleric has criticised the "ostentatious" wearing of poppies by everyone from sports commentators to 'X Factor' judges almost as a fashion statement while adding that he admired Irish soccer star James McClean's decision not to wear the symbol.'

I couldn't believe that when I heard that. Even more baffling that they could have done something to remember those killed in Loughinisland at their next match in USA 94.

This is long on respect:

Not surprisingly the teeshock wearing a poppy this year. Good old Fine Gael representing the west brits.
