Daily Mail (who else)

Quote from yesterday's Daily Mail's Poppy Outrage story.

Mark of respect: Harriet's grandfather 'Jack' Sidney Phipps, who served in the Royal Worcester Regiment during the Second World War
I can easily understand less than 100% accuracy in regimental names, but could Royal Worcester be the original 'falling plates'?

Did they have a Doulton as sub-editor yesterday? Should he be fired?

I think the Daily Mail have a bit of a sauce, printing that sort of story. I also wonder what would Sir Roderick Spode make of this?

gotta love the Mail at times, always eager to use the mistakes of others as a club to beat them over the head with, buuuut when it comes to their own the become extra-ordinarily closed mouthed.

Remember the outrage article they printed regarding the BBC using an image Airacobras in a series of webpages about the Battle of Britain, the Mail's own article and picture captions included a multiple of ridiculous mistakes including the dates of the war as a whole and that the Hawker Hurricane was of the same family as the Supermarine Spitfire.

That was pretty bone, china.

TV pet-rescue presenter last week referred to a 'Lance Colonel of Horse'. What ever happened to 'Researchers'?

Hmmm think she might have a big future ahead.
But maybe not with Hollisters though,

I now think this was a put-up job- a shop has a strict uniform policy (which they are quite entitled to have) which doesn't allow brooches, watches, jewellery- It's not rocket science to twig there was likely to be an issue with a poppy and to force a confrontation.

Of course, it's regretable when a firm doesn't give permission to wear a poppy but it's far worse if an employee is demeaning the whole poppy ethos by using for their own agenda.
