Remember the brave, forget the politics

There's an interesting discussion going on over at Slugger in relation to who will be wearing a poppy in remembrance of those who died in British uniforms in World Wars I and II.

I thought this was an interesting comment from 'Conor':

"I will remember those dead but wont wear a poppy, a truly one sided unionist symbol."

I find it both funny and strange that a flower can evoke such hostility!

I'd like to ask those who refuse to wear a poppy on the grounds that it's a British symbol if they would ever buy their loved ones a rose, which is of course an English symbol?
