The EDL and the poppy trade
No hyperlinks to racist thug organisations here, but if you google your way to the (a?) English Defence League site via words like ‘casuals’ ‘united’ and ‘poppies’, you’ll find that the EDL are selling customised poppies in advance of Remembrance Day.
Most graciously, they say they’ll be giving ‘a percentage’ of their profits to the British Legion, who are generally recognised to have a monopoly on the poppy selling trade at this time of year.
That”s one trade monopoly people haven’t been to bothered about challenging.
At least until now.
I wonder what the British Legion think of this ‘support’ they’re getting from the EDL, and what they think of the EDL using ‘contacts’ within the British Legion to pass on their contribution.
