Isn't that what you claim Irish "natives" to be?
Let me explain this to you.I know all that - what's your point?
NI needed defending from the scum IRA that declared war on the whole of the UK in January 1939.
As for those numbers what did you expect given that most of the Catholic population in Northern Ireland wasn't going to join up. That left just the UL community to contribute to the UK war effort, and defend against the IRA's "war".
What are the numbers as proportions of the populations of Eire and NI?
Nobody has to wear a poppy in the UK, despite the hysterical claims of "poppy fascism".
What's the big deal?
every 1st division soccer player, apart from the very brave James McClean & a Serbian guy wears the British Army poppy,What's the problem?
People are free to not wear a poppy, and there is no poppy police patrolling the streets, forcing people to wear one.
What I wrote :It is several generations ago.
As I said before - you referred explicitly to the Invictus Games. Nobody from that campaign in 1941 participates in the Invictus Games.
Just admit you got it wrong.
They were imperialists among imperialists. I doubt they killed any more people than the Spanish or French.Never forget that if your buy one of these poppies, you are supporting british army terrorists who have killed and maimed millions of people all around the world. Never forget that. The biggest mass murderers the world has ever seen and you are funding them!
Why are you talking in the past tense? They are still murdering innocent people! This whole poppy thing is part of the propaganda campaign to increase the number of recruits. To send more people to their death with the lie of a noble cause trying to justify it. There's nothing heroic about dropping bombs on innocents, about robbing countries, about raping women, about shooting innocents dead, abouty setting up peadophile homes, the list goes on.They were imperialists among imperialists. I doubt they killed any more people than the Spanish or French.
