Letter: Poppies - tell me the difference

Date published: 15 May 2018

Dear Editor,

Can you tell me the difference between these two reports?

Residents outraged after council demands painted street sign be removed:

And this report:

The end of the Great War remembered with poppies:

To me they are doing the same thing – remembering.

I find it shocking when the council thinks it is different to anyone else.
