Misguided calls to extend the poppy display

Much noise is being made by people too lazy to get to the Tower of London during the last few months who now, suddenly, what to see the Remembrance Poppy Display before it gets removed from the 12th November.


Calls are being made to extend the superb poppy display at the Tower of London beyond the 11th November.

I disagree. It is the difference between respectfully commemorating something and wallowing in it.

If people want to see it again, then a similar idea could be implemented in the lead-up to the centenary of the end of the war in 2018.

Despite the Standard leading the calls for an extension, they printed it:
