Why though, do those who have heroically served Queen and Country need to go cap in hand to a charity for support? Shouldn't the government that recruited them, conscripted them and deployed them pick up the tab to fully care for them ?
The fact that Mecannylad has put a couple of quid into a collection tin to buy a poppy in order to ensure that disabled soldiers are looked after is a shameful reflection on the UK's policy for its war heroes!
The Poppy therefore shouldn`t be just a Symbol of Pride, it is also a Symbol of Shame! ….. Shame that a charity is doing what our Government should have a moral duty to do!
