Poppy wreaths burned at memorial

Banned
Wreaths laid in remembrance at a County Armagh war memorial have been set on fire.

About 16 Royal British Legion wreaths at the memorial in the mall in Armagh city were damaged on Monday.

Ulster Unionist Party deputy leader Danny Kennedy said it was a "totally despicable act".

"Just over a week ago we came together to remember those who had paid the ultimate sacrifice in both world wars and in more recent conflicts."

"This act of destruction is a complete insult and slur on their memory," he said.

"Those who carried out this act would do well to remember that the poppy represents men and women from both communities and both sides of the border."

Too broad a statement but you probably already know that and are posting for effect.

So much for any peace accord is all that I will say. Random act or Sinn Fein orchestrated I wonder!!??

You know, someone could just have dropped a fag on the floor and they caught fire.

It could just be an accident.

Not all the Irish are mental. Just the ginger ones. And that bloke from the Corrs. And Shane McGowan.

People are entitled to express their disgust at British invasion policies we do live in a country were freedom to protest is available!!

Invasion? Interesting choice of words

Your right should be illegal invasion policies!!

People have a right to do lots of things..... thats why these people made their sacrifice and we should be thankful for it..

I dont think those rights extend to criminal damage though.

Sick inbreds

It was embarassing enough the other week when 60-70 people walked out of Parkhead (Celtic's ground) in protest over the minutes applause ( a silence was asking for trouble apparently! )
They also handed out flyers with John Reid's ( Former Defence Secretary, now Celtic's Chairman ) face on a picture of a poppy with the words ' War Criminal '.
What is wrong with these people?
Surely somewhere along the line a member of their family, however distant, has been involved in war????
Baboons, all of them.
No matter what your personal opinion about the whole Iraq thing, have some respect for those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Duty to their country.

Completely agree.

If people want to protest about the government or their foreign policies - defacing the memory of those that have fallen is not the way to do it.

These people should not be given the oxygen of publicity. The idiots always get the attention they want
