I was watching a Premier League game over the weekend, where the players had poppy patches on their uniform jerseys.

They wanted the footballers to be allowed to wear poppy armbands, but there is so much pressure to wear poppies these days. Sadly they have lost the connotations of "never again" and remembrance of those who died in defence of our nation and are increasingly becoming a pro-military symbol. :(
