I am sure you will have noted the FIFA ban on the England team wearing poppies at the weekend friendly against Spain. I tuned in to the BBC’s Nolan show this morning (Stuck in traffic and I’m a masochist!) and who was the guest expert commentator? Why none other than my old pal from the Sunday Morning Live green room, the former Biship of Hulme, Stephen Lowe. (You will recall my slight verbal altercation with him yesterday in connection to the wearing of poppies, he being somewhat conflicted about whether to wear a Red Poppy.) Can you guess the view the former Bishop was advocating to the fury of quite a few listeners? Yes, that’s right, he heartily approves of the FIFA ban on the England players and feels that the Poppy is somehow devalued if everyone wears it. He also made a passing reference to the “Empire” origins of the Poppy. Now, I have no issue with this socialist cleric holding the views that he does, after all we live in a democracy. But I do wonder WHY the BBC seems so keen to provide him with platform after platform? Is it because his views resonate with them in the same way as my views appall them? Where is the balance?
