Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Forced to wear a poppy for so called British army Heroes.

The SPL is bringing politics into sport. It has told all football players they are to wear a poppy.
All players in the Scottish Premier League are being told to wear poppies during match play to mark this years poppy appeal.
Matches due to be held on 8 and 9 of November will see all players wearing the emblem in support of Poppyscotland.
This is a disgrace, how can any player say no. What if a player is a pacifist, the SPL says stuff the right to free will.
We do not all think the British army are brave heros to remember with pride.
They tortured the Irish for centuries and they are still torturing.
Sick.

These British soldiers on video here are not heroes or brave.
These british soldiers are common cowards and sadistic thugs.
The soldier who is commentating is obviously mentally disturbed, in need of psychiatric help, not a few extra pound charity from poppy sales to get pissed on cheap lager, to go bragging down the legion bar.

To think that some people line the streets cheering the likes of these cowardly thugs on as if they are all brave heroes, that is disturbing.
No questions asked, they literally imagine these salaried employees are heroic because of a uniform.
A uniform that has terrorized and murdered countless of innocent people across the world.

POPPYCOCK
When my grandmother passed away in the early 1990s I was going through some old photographs and found a card with the photo of a young soldier with a black ribbon attached. It was addressed to my Great-great grandfather and family from the War Department announcing the death of their son at the Battle of Loos in September 1915. He was aged 19 and conscripted into the Highland Light Infantry.

One year while travelling through France curiosity got the better of me and I visited the Commonweath War Cemetery at Loos and saw his name inscribed on a granite wall. No grave simply buried in a mass pit along with thousands of others.

When i got back to Glasgow I decided to try and find out what actually happened to him and his company in the battle. I visited the regiment's archives, stored in the museum on Sauchiehall Street.

I was given the officer in charge of the 10th Batallion HLIís diary to read. On the day my great uncle was killed he was sent to attack a train line being held by the Germans. The officers ordered mustard gas to be fired in advance at the German positions. According to the diary, prevailing wind conditions hadnít been considered and the mustard gas blew back into the faces of the Scottish troops. So there you have it. Chemical weapons and death by friendly fire...in 1915.

Do I feel like contributing to the Earl Haig Fund (to give the organisation behind Poppy Day it's real name) because of this tragedy? Certainly not.

These lions led by donkeys deserve our thoughts and remembrance along with the many other tens of thousands of conscripts slaughtered in Gallipoli and other places the Celt died for Anglo-imperialism. However, I wonít be contributing because nowadays the funds go to VOLUNTEER soldiers who have in my opinion collaborated with the ruling class in the name of imperialism in Korea, Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Recruitment in Scotland for the Crown forces is at an all time low and jingoism is the order of the day to reverse that trend for the overstretched British military. So now itís mandatory poppies, minute silences and aggressive recruitment in our schools, colleges and shopping centres.

Remembrance this November should be for the great Scottish Republican Socialist John Maclean who stood in front of huge crowds during the imperialist slaughter of 1914-1918 and called for mutiny amongst the troops and class war. He was jailed several times for sedition and force-fed while on hunger strike. He died an early death in 1923. So on November 30th, the 85th anniversary of his death, remember one man who would never have worn a poppy no matter how much pressure he was under...

John Maclean, the fighting dominie.
