Agree we should put our hands in our pockets, but I’m not sure that they should be described as “lovely” and “looks really good”.

Poppy badges & brooches in various guises have become more like a fashion accessory of late. The direct opposite of what they were first designed for – to remember the futility and suffering of a whole generation. The old paper poppy was unassuming and fragile like life itself.

However, anything that gets folk to contribute to the appeal has to be a good thing. Just don’t wear it all year like some people I know!
