I don't need to wear a poppy to remember the people that died, so no I don't wear one.

I also go to the remembrance service on the Sunday at the local memorial.

Agreed. This will be the first year for some time that I won't be wearing one.

Is there a specific date that all mps/tv presenters/anyone in the public eye have to be wearing one or face being drummed out of the country?

They should wear one every day of the week just to show the maximum amount of respect.

While I find the people demanding everyone wears a poppy distasteful, I don’t think anybody looks down on anybody that does wear one.

It should always be a choice with no controversy whether somebody is or isn’t wearing one.

I haven't worn one for the last few years, but I am considering buying some white poppies this year as their message resonates with me far more than the image of the traditional poopy with me these days.

I like to buy a poppy because it feels good that the money helps support people who have been injured (physically or mentally) due to war. Personally I don’t feel that it glorifies war; if anything, it stands as something that highlights the horror of war.

Farage, Robinson, Hopkins, Britain First have butchered the meaning of the poppy, so many think its a "british" thing its scary, not that millions died in 2 conflicts and that they were pawns in peoples war games. I havent see a "if the poppy offends you" post yet, which I'm quite pleased with, though it might be because I've blocked them all on twitter.

And to answer the question, i don't wear one because i cannot be arsed, I still donate and understand the meaning of the poppy, its a shame most do not.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Happy to chuck in a quid or two but I don't wear the poppy anymore. No-one should have to feel pressured into donning one.

The only disagreement I would have with the Poppy itself is that it shouldn’t be necessary. Our government should be making sure that veterans have all of the care they need.

But obviously that’ll never happen and so it is a good cause that I am happy to support and chuck a few quid into every year.

Bollocks am I wearing one just to appease the absolute arseholes that demand it though.
