Two stories out of the United Kingdom today!! Both sent to me by a relative who understands what is happening. The first is about the British Legion, an organization supposedly representing military past and present. They have become “woke!!”
Read on and hopefully you are as disgusted as I was. I worked for this organization when I lived over there. Trust me – this thinking was not around then.
Fred, Wondered whether you saw the “Two Minute Silence” advert from Royal British Legion.
I did not think it portrayed the remembrance of those who lost their lives in the world wars or more recent conflicts. They did not fight for ‘a better future’, they fought and died for freedom from a cruel and oppressive tyranny!
It looks like the new £55k Diversity Manager has begun the transformation of poppy day into something completely different. More of our history being rewritten and money which would be more appropriately spent on our struggling veterans is being used for what looks like political propaganda. Portraying a large coloured family sitting at the table with what looks like a white ‘waiter’ standing over them ready to serve a roast dinner – how does that representative our fallen? Can you imagine it the other way round?! ( note from Fred: I am not trying to belittle black peoples role in the British military but in WWI and WWII we saw very few blacks in Britains military, the few there were coming from the colonies and not all in combat positions. Even today, decades after the Second World War, we find that in Britain’s woke military blacks make up less than 12% of all positions. The British Legion was primarily to support military personnel from the Great Wars. )
I am completely baffled by the words ‘Those who serve on testing sites! Testing sites meaning Covid testing sites for Gods sake. Nothing like a real bloody battle field.
Anyway, I’ve written to them and await their response….
Here is the reply she received from them:
It seems they want all her personal information- for what nefarious reason? Plus they end saying the query is closed!! ( Note from Fred:- intimidation, I am sure, is the reason for their asking for all her personal details. )

ON this Remembrance Sunday, I cannot help but muse on the blatant hypocrisy we shall see today. Remembrance Sunday is about those who gave their lives in two world wars so that we could all live in freedom.www.conservativewoman.com
