No Poppy Ceding

The whole point of wearing the poppy is negated by compulsion.

Still, if it were indeed to be worn by the players of a football match between England and Scotland on Armistice Day, then what, exactly, would be the penalty, so to speak?

Yes, I do still wear the poppy.

I take the point of those who say that it has been twisted into an expression of support for recent, current and proposed wars.

But I refuse to surrender it to the people who have done that twisting.
