Lest We Forget

We would like to show our disgust at the fascist BNP using Remembrance day as a sick publicity stunt. At a few of our local cenotaphs the BNP have been busy placing poppy wreathes and using it as a photo opportunity and a publicity stunt. This is not the purpose of remembrance Sunday nor should it ever be. Remembrance Sunday is to remember all those who fell in the two world wars, one of which was to rid Europe and protect Britain from fascism. The war dead would be spinning in their graves if they knew that their day is under the threat of being hijacked by people with the very same ideas that they paid the ultimate price to protect us from.

Millions of British men and women died to keep Britain free from fascist tyranny and should be remembered for it and everyone who does should do so with pride and honour, but the BNP hijacking it for their own gain is a sick joke and a spit in the eye to all of the brave men and women from both wars.

Lest we forget, fascism doesn’t start with gas chambers, it ends with them!!!
