I'm in no way a poppy nazi, each to their own etc. However, when it comes to TV shows, where they are given to the presenters and guests anyway, I feel they should be worn even if only to set an example. On this weeks Mock the Week (accepting there were two Irishmen on there) not one of them was wearing one, that suggests to me either a collective decision or a cock up, I suspect the former.
It was more obvious because in the clips of the people they were lampooning, they were all wearing them........

Tbh, I couldn't care less who wears one and who doesn't regardless of nationality.

If wearing a poppy is anything other than your own conscious decision it's meaningless. It becomes the same as PR droids plonking hats on formula one drivers before interviews.

To be honest all the fancy poppies, small poppies, special edition poppies, jewel encrusted specially designed by a fashion house poppies etc all get on my tits.

You're showing your respects to the fallen, it's not a fashion parade.

Agreed. If it isn't bought from a RBL collector or display, then the RBL are getting nothing from your purchase. Why should some dodgy EBay sweatshop in Hong Kong profit from remembering the fallen?

My missus' "filing system".

We have a filing cabinet, and in fairness, she's pretty good at filing things like manuals and receipts away. But the way she files stuff...?! Washing machine, fridge and freezer all filed under "B" (for Bosch, obviously - we'll skip blithely over the fact that one of them is actually by AEG - a minor matter); Pressure Washer under "K" for Karcher; the Russell-Hobbs Kettle... aha well, I'm sure you're getting the hang of it now: that's under K for Kettle, obviously.

As much as that irritates you Kh, that has really made me chuckle.

Surely you could find most, if not all, of those manuals online? And what kind of kettle do you have that you need to keep the manual for?

On the subject of poppies, I am reading a collection of David Mitchell's newspaper columns and funnily enough, read this one just the other day. 6 years old but I agree with his take on it:

Having to spend £23 on a taxi to get to work this morning because no buses turned up.

No official silence planned this morning, still did it though even though other people were talking.

Having a really crap day.

Then no buses turning up to get me home.

And to top it all off one of the cats was sick on my sofa.
