Helen Lewis (New Statesman) was not wearing a poppy when she appeared on Sunday Politics yesterday.
However she disguised this fact by wearing a very busy dress of red flowers on a dark background, so most people will not have noticed.
This seems a very mealy-mouthed compromise.
Either she is a socialist red in tooth and claw protesting against the militarism of the imperial British state.
Or she is a running dog revisionist of the new bourgeoisie, betraying the revolutionary masses with her cowardly compromises.
One cannot run with the fox and hunt with the hounds Ms Lewis.
