New rash of subverted poppy appeal billboards across London.

There has been a new rash of subvetising of poppy appeal billboards in London. The slogan "for his sake buy a poppy" below a picture of a solider in the battlefield has been changed to "for his sake stop the war in Afghanistan".

The subvertising has been appearing at various locations across the London area. It is thought to be the work of anti-war activists outraged at the ongoing war in Afghanistan. So far the local London press has been keeping quiet about this probably to prevent copy cat actions on similar billboards.
