Keep poppy views to yourself, please

Published 13/11/2015

How dare Tom Cooper (Write Back, November 10) comment on the wearing of the poppy in the United Kingdom.

He must be going out of his way to be offended - ie watching the BBC.

I have family and friends who served in the armed forces and I am extremely proud of them.

To avoid future offence, perhaps Mr Cooper should watch RTE (only if he has a TV licence, of course).
