Aww you bought a purple poppy for your dog, that's a wonderful story! The rest of course is your usual political correct leftist claptrap!


Whatever. Your contribution has been your usual homophobic claptrap. ‘They’re all the same as long as they shut the hell up and don’t tell anyone’. That’s how it goes isn’t it?

And I’ll guarantee I’m less leftist than you are. Just less inclined to judge people that have absolutely no detrimental effect on me whatsoever.

They didn’t produce poppies affixed to a Swans badge in a bygone era. But that’s fine. As it’s not what is important.

Respect is innate and sincere, not outward displays to show others you care.


In my world, I believe it shows a lack of respect to change the colour. That is all I'm saying.
The fact that mine has a swans crest affixed is irrelevant.

JP suggests that an individual should have a choice. Secondly do those that protest the colour being different actually by the red one.

Jackportis the brand. “A gifted poster”, “planet swans have a real talent on their hands in the name of Jackportis” sky sports 2018. . JP fully supports posters of LBG, mx orientation and ethnic minority groups.

Nothing says respect like using Remembrance Day for a bit of anti gay bigotry in my opinion.

They haven't changed the colour. Red poppies are still available.

Yes and they should all be red, not any other colour.
Does that help you?😀

I don't believe that i have posted anything homophobic in this thread whatsoever! In fact in the main i've been anything but that, in the sense that i wish all LGBT people would act in the same manner as us all, and not demand equality but at the same time wish to shout from the roof tops how 'different' they want us to know they are. It's severely hypocritical really. And a 'rainbow' poppy is well, let's just say is the height of hypocrisy.

Indeed. The red one, strangely enough the colour they grow in the fields, should include all that served and laid their lives down in previous conflicts. Those who identify as minority groups are included in the red one. No need for multi coloured ones or other coloured ones. Just the red one.

For a lot of us the ceremony on Remembrance Sunday has profound meaning, a solemn act of Christian communion. After the minute silence as we are called to attention, flags lowered and heads bowed the hymn is sung. It’s very likely the one, true selfless act many of those in attendance will commit to that year.

It’s an act of unconditional tribute, not a political football.


An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.

That's a different argument.

It's good that red poppies are available and I'm sure that about 99% plus of all poppies sold will be red. If a few alternatives are available, such as football poppies and rainbow poppies then what's the problem? As long as money is being raised for the British Legion which is supposed to be the important thing isn't it?

Personally I think if you're such a red poppy purist you should be against football poppies. They seem a bit tacky to me but each to their own. If it's only the rainbow poppy you object to then it may be your attitude to gay people that's the problem.

You are the person who thinks the existence of gay people should be hidden from children yes?

Apologies if you're not in advance.

Don't be tvvat, I don't have a problem with anyone.
I have a problem with poppies that aren't red.
Anyhoo, I think you know where I stand on this one so I'll leave it there.👍

Yeah I knew you were opposed to the teaching kids about LGBT issues. I was just wondering if it was you who didn't want kids to even know they existed. Anyway, you say it it wasn't you. That's fine then.

Have a pleasant evening.

Being outraged about changing the colour of the poppy while seeing nothing wrong with having a football crest (of all things) on it is genuinely one of the most bizarre opinions I've read in a while.

I wish we would remember our dead by not killing more people in pointless politically driven wars. I also wish we'd respect them and their sacrifices by not selling arms to maniacs to destroy millions of other lives.

Perhaps then we could stop worrying about the colour of manufactured plastic poppies and really respect what they died for, by actually respecting the post war dream that their deaths should have supported, gay, straight, or whatever floats your boat.

No mate I'm not outraged at all, I'm saddened by it all.
Oh and if you think my opinion is the most bizzare thing ever posted on here, your either new on here or your not paying attention.

There is a vast difference from showing you are a Swansea City fan displaying a red poppy to show respect, other than displaying a rainbow poppy to let everyone know you are gay. A red poppy with LGBT in the middle? No problem for me. Hope this helps.

I hope none of us or any of our friends and relatives ever get to the situation where we'll be shot at, watch colleagues die or obliterate in front of us.
Despite that hell on Earth, we WON the world wars.

We never celebrate wildly do we our "victories" of 1918 & 1945
We have memorials instead. Now traditionally we were taught RED was the colour.

Whether it's tartan, pink or turquoise doesn't matter a jot in these ever changing times.

The fact of the matter is that those that wear that poppy are remembering the brave, brave heroes that fought for us .
I wonder how many of the "hard cases", "toughies" would go to the trenches today?

RIP to those that died. Respect to those that made it home.
