"A group of [British] war veterans has been banned from selling remembrance poppies in part of a shopping centre - after their stall was branded a fire risk. The Derby branch of the Burma Star Association has set up a stall in the city's Eagle Centre for several years. But complex bosses said the group were unable to do the same thing this year for health and safety reasons.
Anything to do with the military drives the Left into hysterics -- witness their constant opposition in the USA to the ROTC and allowing military recruiters onto college campuses. So my guess is that this was just a bit of pandering to the British Left.
