Proscribe the Burning of any National Symbol of Patriotism or Respect
PROSCRIBE THE BURNING OF ANY NATIONAL SYMBOL OF PATRIOTISM OR RESPECT SUCH AS NATIONAL FLAGS OR POPPIES, MAKING IT PUNISHABLE BY IMPRISONMENT
BURNING POPPIES OR ABUSING SOLDIERS MAY NO LONGER BE ILLEGAL. Ministers are considering making it legal to use insulting words or actions to avoid "criminalising free speech"We have been disgusted with the lack of respect shown by some groups and individuals towards National Symbols of Patriotism or Respect.
The ceasefire at 11am on 11 November 1918 had "huge significance" for Britain and marked the end of a "terrible war"
We now remember this with a two minutes silence on Armistice Day (also known as Remembrance Day) at 11:00 a.m. local time as a sign of respect for the roughly 20 million people who died in the war.
Last year Muslim extremists interrupted the two minutes silence by chanting 'British soldiers burn in hell', followed by the burning of three over sized poppies, which was a calculated and deliberate insult to the dead and those who mourn or remember them.
Emdadur Choudhury, 26, of Spitalfields, east London, was fined £50 for offences under the Public Order Act. Whilst Mohammed Haque, 30, of Bethnal Green, was cleared of the charge. Both men had been accused of burning three over sized poppies on 11 November in Kensington.
This makes a mockery of everything we as British Patriots hold dear and think that these despicable acts should warrant imprisonment.
The flag is the symbol of not just our nation, but of different nations worldwide.
To burn a flag in our Country, whether that be one of our own flags or another nations, again we feel should be punishable by imprisonment.
On the 10th anniversary of 9/11 Muslim protesters set fire to an American flag outside the US embassy in London during a minute's silence to mark the moment that the first hijacked airliner hit the World Trade Center 10 years ago.
