“Show some respect”

Here’s the front page of The Sun today, covered in poppies. God, Britain really has ruined that beautiful flower.

“War heroes last night called for pro-Palestine marches on Remembrance weekend to be cancelled, demanding ‘show some respect.'” It’s wild. As if calling for a ceasefire of another war couldn’t be the highest possible respect you could show to people who lived through WW1.

(Also, all the actual heroes of that era, the ones the poppies are supposed to be in remembrance of, are dead. We don’t know what they would have thought, although I doubt it would be “continue to bomb innocent people.”)
