Perpetual Poppy


On the approach to Remembrance Day we are increasingly starting to see all manner of designer poppies - even the Royal British Legion does a rather handsome enamelled one. However, isn't the production of a perpetual poppy a tad self-defeating, in that it while it may give a short term boost to revenues, it could result in fewer people buying the old paper and plastic poppy in subsequent years? Also, it opens the market to private individuals who may have bugger-all to do with the Royal British Legion's poppy charity.


Just a thought.
