I've never noticed any indication that the wearing of poppies has been hijacked by the right wing, so I'm assuming that it's mainly happening in Europe.

Yeah I agree, specially after looking at the twitter feed link that you posted, that the whole thing is now lacking it's original meaning, the way that everybody is jumping on the bandwagon.

I think it's specifically Britain and even more specifically England where the right wing louts have been hijacking the poppy for their own ends. That's been happening for a while, but the commercial companies jumping on the bandwagon to enhance their brand is very recent and needs nipping in the bud.
