War dead are not honoured by constant bullying

There are certain members of the public, alongside unionist politicians and most of the media, who are intent on vilifying anyone who does not wear a poppy around Remembrance Day.

But such bullying is close to the fascism against which so many people fought and died.

They fought for freedom - and that includes freedom of opinion.

I am very, very seriously considering exerting that right by not wearing a poppy when I attend the cenotaph service next year.
