Would be a great cause if it commemerated all victims of all wars
As it is it doesnt, so it isnt
I take no pride in the way Britain behaved in countries like India and especially Ireland
I am a proud scouser but never been a proud "Brit"
It has absolutely nothing to do with whether you are a proud "Brit" or not. We are talking here about supporting the Royal British Legion who do a magnificent job in supporting numerous causes, helping service men and women rebuild their lives after life changing injuries, helping the widows and their children manage after losing their husband/wife, father/mother. My elderly mother living alone was able to call "Poppy care" to help with minor jobs around the house when she couldn't manage, this was a free service provided by ex-servicemen who were paid a modest salary by the Legion untill they could find work. I don't care if the British Legion doesn't support other nations , we can't support the world but thank God we have an organisation that supports our own who didn't ask to be killed/maimed/traumatised in Iraq and Afghanistan more recently.
