The first poppy
Telegraph View: We praise Tony McNulty for wearing a poppy before the week running up to Remembrance Sunday.
Almost 100 years ago, Frederick Delius composed a tone poem, On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring. It would take a quirkier musician to be inspired by the first poppy of autumn. In this case, the Tone involved is Tony McNulty, once a minister, yesterday a participant on the BBC's Daily Politics. In the ex‑ministerial lapel nestled a poppy, bloom and leaf.
Not long ago, poppies in memory of the fallen were worn in the week running up to Remembrance Sunday, this year November 8, and retained until Armistice Day. Last year, the first television poppy-sighting was on October 21. Mr McNulty has beaten it by almost a week. If some may mock him for pre-popping his poppy, we praise him for a greater good: contributing to the Royal British Legion and showing that he understands the sacrifices the poppy signifies.
