Lest We Forget

Will the Scottish players' shirts or armbands feature the Scottish poppy, which conforms to a natural one in having four petals and no leaf?

The Canadian poppy appears to be similar.

But that is an aside.

At Prime Minister's Questions, Jeremy Corbyn raised the matter of a military veteran who had died because he had been subjected to a benefit sanction.

Instead, though, all coverage is of the wearing of poppies during a football match, which in itself is an extremely recent innovation.
