Well done to the Royal British Legion for publicising its request to Nicholas Griffin of the Odious BNP' not to wear poppies during electioneering. Quite aside from the fact that it is inappropriate for such emblems to be used outside November - think of one blogger who tales pleasure out of putting Happy Xmas (War is over) on pub jukeboxes in July - it is another sign that the extreme right is happy to hijack symbols and campaigns.
In The Guardian, the open letter states,
- The Royal British Legion has accused Nick Griffin, the BNP leader, of trying to politicise "one of the nation's most treasured and beloved symbols" after he repeatedly wore a poppy badge during the European parliament election campaign.
Anyone know whether Griffin's poppy was made in Warsaw or not?
