The public burning or destruction of the British Rememberance Poppy to be a criminal offence/act of treason

Additional Information

"Burn, burn, British soldiers, British soldiers, burn in hell." Were the words chanted when a group of protesters burned a reef of Remembrance Poppy's on Armistice Day 2011.

This should not be handled through the Public Order act but should be seen as treason against the state to do so in a public fashion.

I demand the government shows people like this that we do not take insults to fallen heroes lightly.

I strongly believe it should be included within the act of Treason or be a criminal offence in it's own right.
