This has NOT gone down well with the Mailites and they are now on the verge of declaring the Royal British Legion as enemies...



Remembrance Day will now honour civilians and victims of terror after the Royal British Legion announces the red poppy isn't just for fallen soldiers

Fed up with all this P.C. rubbish. War Veterans, and those who lost their lives for our freedom, deserve to be honoured, full stop. It's a matter of respect and gratitude, enough of trying to appease everyone. Keep this day for the Veterans alone, it's the least we can do for them and their memory.

Why ARE so many veterans gunning for the British Legion? It's one of Britain's best loved charities, but despite £70m cash reserves, it is closing down hotels for ex-servicemen and is accused of letting bureaucracy stifle cries for help, writes SUE REID

Umm...
The Haig Fund is to provide support for ex-servicemen and their families, and those affected by conflict. It is an act of remembrance, but it's much more than that.

But no, to these low-grade morons it's all about respeck for are boys and grief porn. When what the ex-servicemen actually want is a bit of help.
