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??
