There is a huge difference between not honouring the soldiers, and burning the symbols of respect for them in the streets on a day where people around the country (and other parts of the world) pay respect to those soldiers.
Which is why I said the UKBA is completely incompetent for letting them in.

They would hate it and probably react with mass riots. Food for thought.
Indeed they will, but again, I will not stoop as low as to cause trouble because their interpretation of the symbol is different from mine. If they are expressing their distaste loudly but they don't cause trouble, I would probably just ignore them. If they cause trouble, then lock them up. Its that simple.
