In search of a European identity

90th anniversary of the end of WWI

It’s looming – and from today it’s apparently officially acceptable to wear a poppy.

No longer are the Remembrance Sunday parades packed out with survivors of the Somme, even veterans from the Second World War are getting rarer by the day, and the curmudgeon in all of us feels like asking if anyone remembers why they bothered seeing the state of the world today.

But none of that matters. And no, it doesn’t matter if you opposed the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan either. Donate. Though none of us can ever understand, we must remember.
