Poppy Cocks: Gaunt and Choudary Need To Remember

by | 7th, November 2008

“VILE HATE PREACHER INSULTS OUT POPPIES,” screams the Star.

The Sun cocks an ear to the West. It picks up its hotline to Omar Bakri. The Sun’s dial-a-loon denies all knowledge.

“Not, me, guv,” chimes Bakri, Beirut Hackney Cab Driver 5641b. “But I wish I’d have thought of it. While you’re on the blower can I wish death on Pudsey Bear instead?” Save it, Bakri.

Back to the Star, and Anjem Choudary says our poppies are crap. Our poppies aren’t even real poppies. Our Great British poppies smell of NOTHING.

Our Great British poppies taste of NOTHING. And can you make a decent shot of smack out of them? NO!

Choudary goes on to say that any Muslim who wears a crappy fake poppy is backing “British nationalism”, not to mention shunning hardworking Afghani florists who slave to grow poppies which can be enjoyed the world over.

Poppying Out

Over in the Sun, there is “FURY” that poppy sellers are being kicked out of shops.

To the Eden Centre, High Wycombe, Bucks, where a war veteran, his wife and a former TA soldier are being told that selling poppies for 14 days contravenes Code 56 sub-sections HG15p of the local poppy by-laws. Poppies should only be sold for four days.

A few words and some mortar fire and all is well. The poppy sellers are allowed back inside the shopping centre.

Can We Forget?

It is a victory for common sense, and Jon Gaunt, the Sun’s perplexed man, is considering poppies and their causes.

Gaunt says Jon Snow isn’t wearing a poppy “…AGAIN”.

Snow, the Channel 4 news reader, is without a poppy?

“What is it with this berk?” asks Gaunt, who knows as well as the next man in the street that we shall wear out poppies with pride on Remembrance Day, which is November 11 (unless the liberal elite have changed that, eh, Gaunty?!).

Snow has time to find a poppy. (Hint: They sell them openly in Buckinghamshire.) And Gaunt can get one, too.

Gaunt’s picture above his Sun page shows him to be wearing a shirt open at the neck, no jacket and no poppy.

Gaunt cuts a slovenly figure. He should make an effort. Gaunt and Choudary need to learn respect and its meaning, and are advised to hang out together in the garden centre this Remembrance Sunday and see what their forefathers died for…
