Poppy on a Burqua - The Daily Mail


#1

In the UK, Remembrance Day recalls the war dead. Paper poppies, to recall the battlefields of the Somme and others, are worn by lots of people, we pay a small donation for them.

The day approaches.

While IT are sorting out my login, I came across this fine piece of journalism:

The author is “Richard Littlejohn”. An olde Englishe name, if ever I hearde one, reminiscent even of the Crusaders.

He makes a point. It’s not a totally invalid point, I guess, but not one I would necessarily raise.

But it’s nutrition-free, hateful journalism, with so many sound-bites I could eat for a week.

The UK does seem to be taking that recent European swing to the right - or has the Daily Mail always churned this stuff out??

Aye, that’s pretty much their raison d’etre. There was a very nice article I saw yesterday about muslim kids selling remembrance day poppies as a gesture of solidarity, and, you know, them being involved in WORLD WARII as well, Littlejohn, you evil fuck… God, I hate the Mail.
