Time to buy your poppy

Every year mainstream politicians, newsreaders, and other people in the public eye seem to start wearing their Remembrance Day poppies ever earlier.  However, the first poppies to be seen in 2017 were not in the lapels of politicians, but for sale near the entrance to a gym near Tooting Bec tube station, in the London Borough of Wandsworth.
