Does anyone ever notice that the big poppy wearers of old London town are absolute hypocrites? As an Irish Republican, I am politically opposed to the British Army and so of course I don't wear one.
However I notice that the Irish people that do wear them and wax lyrical about the great British army, are the same Irish people who are vehemently opposed to the IRA for killing civilians, they are morally outraged!
Yet they have absolutely no skin on their nose about supporting an Army that has killed innocent Irish men, women and children. The moral outrage against the IRA rings very hollow when they are more than prepared to wear a poppy to support the soldiers that murdered people at Bloody Sunday, Ballymurphy and all these children.
