2018: the next party!

The simple spectacle of 888,246 ceramic poppies slowly flooding the Tower of London’s moat has been immensely popular and powerful.

Each poppy, one for every fallen British soldier of the great War, was paid for by a member of the public.  The moat filled in the weeks leading up to 11th November (I took the above picture on 20th September) and will now empty.

Am I the only one irritated by the crass TV commentators who muse about how a 2018 commemoration might top this, as if looking forward to the next party, the next “event” worthy of media coverage?
