So this thread is not about politics? Those we remember, those for whom the Cenotaph was built in Remembrance of, were 'Marching as to War', and sent there by politicians. We expect those same politicians to show appropriate respect on Remembrance Sunday when laying their wreaths on behalf of the country, the electorate, and their parties. When they turn up looking dishevelled or are inappropriately dressed they attract rightful criticism. That isn't politics, it's the voice of freedom. Shutting down such comment, or even pouring scorn on it, is politics as witnessed by the current prevalence of the offence principle in today's world.
