British Legion not allowed to sell poppies in Birmingham

The news is that Birmigham City Council changed its application system and that the British Legion will not be allowed to collect money in the run-up to November 13. The legion is not permitted to collect anywhere in the city on 12 November.

Given the dates and the charity involved, one would have thought that Birmingham City Council would have remembered that Birmingham is in the United Kingdom.

One also hopes that, despite the reasons given for the cancellation, there are no other reasons why Birmingham City Council would be willing to stop the British Legion from collecting money during the said time of the year.
