Demands for Britain First to Take Down Photo of Sea Cadets

Every year the town centres all over the UK are filled with people supporting the poppy appeal. Most often you will find people of all ages, including cadets. Personally I think it's brilliant seeing all these dedicated youngsters and it really puts a smile on my face.

This week a couple of Sea Cadets who were out selling poppies were approached by two men wanting to take a photograph standing with them. It was confirmed later on that the two girls did not know these men. They were from the organisation Britain First who were claiming to be there protecting young people like the girls, when in reality there was no need for it as the cadets are always sent out with the adult support needed. Britain First posted this picture on their Facebook page and it was immediately requested to be taken down. There were multiple reasons for which people were outraged by the appearance of it, one of which was the no consent claim from one of the parents.

 In my opinion something like is just proof of the need to provoke by some. Britain First is not exactly the most liked political party and this is only making it harder for people to like them. Nottingham Sea Cadets felt the need to express their non support of the group on Facebook, demanding again that the picture be taken down. 

Please rest assured we do not support Britain First. The cadets were approached by these and asked for a photo. They...

According to Britain First's own article on the matter, they had decided to take action after last year's reoccurring abuse on the poppy sellers. They said they ' stood guard' over the sellers making sure they were safe from Islamic extremists. Unfortunately they went about it all wrong and sparked a whole long list of responses. The images are still up on both their Facebook and Twitter accounts where people are still having to remind them that Nottingham Sea Cadets and parents of the girls have already asked them to take the image down once. Sea Cadets UK spoke up as they explained their anger towards Britain First for using the image of the girls out of context and for a group they do not support.


We are aware that an organisation we do not support or endorse is using an image of Sea Cadets to promote their own...

It is sad that in such times we still have to fight for the true meaning of this week. As much as they have posted about Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, Britain First have upset hundreds with their constant referral to the late Lee Rigby, who was killed by Islamic extremists in May two years ago. At first it only seems like an innocent post, but they are only trying to promote the beliefs of their organisation by reminding people how he died. Just last week The Royal Anglian Regiment also asked that one of their troop's photo was removed from the the Britain First Facebook page. Britain First really have pushed it this time, and it makes it all the worst when it is done deliberately on a week that is made to remember those who have fought for us. I am just so glad that there are enough people out there who are supporting this day in the way it should be celebrated.
