Itís a fundraising thing, so buying the poppies for her dogs will fund that charity.

Plenty Irish died on that fateful day. Most wars canít be justified but we manage to commentate and celebrate wars that have happened on this island and then feel that the fascist imperialism of Britain needs to be scorned!

Probably because one is fascist and imperialistic and the types we do like to commemorate were fought to rid us of that imperialism...

Which part of the civil war or recent troubles do you like to commemorate?

Meanwhile over in England, someone either has massive balls of steel or a major death wish...

Remembrance Sunday disrupted by fireworks in Salford

A man who disrupted a Remembrance Sunday event with fireworks had to be rushed away from angry veterans by police.

The fireworks exploded in the sky as hundreds of people stood in silence at 11:00 GMT and listened to the Last Post at the cenotaph in Eccles, Salford.

A man had set them off from a window ledge in a disused pub across the road.

Angry veterans began shouting, "Get him out!" and trying to break down the pub door before officers took the man away.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said a 38-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and was being questioned.

Poppy fascism at its best:

Just caught a glimpse of that Coven on ITV (aka Loose Women) discussing the topic Ďshould we be made to wear a poppy?í

Agreed - he should either have red carded them or buried his hurl in them.

Which part of the civil war or recent troubles do you like to commemorate?

Didnít know nationalist commemorations were only for that and not events like the Easter Rising... Let those who want to wear their poppies wear them, and let those who want to wear the Easter lily wear them also.

Youíve never been to a Easter parade and listen to the speeches? I suppose you hear what you want to hear.

Following up on the story of that remarkable man.

Salford man jailed (4 months) for setting off fireworks at Remembrance Sunday event

Somehow miraculously managed to escape being ripped to pieces by the angry mob frothing at the mouth  in a KKK like frenzy.
