I just think it is a good way of pecefully showing objection. Big red pashmina here :-)

Me too. Red dress :-)

Very red lippy and red scarf for going out later.

You see I unfortunately associate this with sectarianism. As in Glasgow, you get people being attacked for wearing certain colours associated with football teams. Or they do stupid things like attacking traffic lights because they turn to green.

And you do realise that by wearing red, you are also aligning yourself with the communist Korean regime currently causing so much trouble?

Oh good. I shall enjoy that, too!
And it's spelt bollocks!

Or alternatively to cause awareness if heart disease. It being the biggest single cause of death for women.
Which I must admit was my first thought smile

I am happily going about my normal business today and I don't think I'd register you wearing red, green, yellow or whatever you want.
I hope nobody reads anything into the fact that my suit today happens to be dark blue. hmm

If you're wearing a dark blue suit and carrying a little boxy handbag, that could be misinterpreted...

Yeah, it wouldn't cross my mind what color you are wearing or what it's for. I'm wearing neon yellow. It's not a political statement, or a health statement, or anything else. It's just a nice dress.

I'm not sure it'll do any good as a way of peacefully objecting, but if it makes you feel like you've had your say, there's no harm in it.

im wearing a red dress, red cardigan, red watch, red flower in my hair and bright red lipstick.

If it gets colder, i may put on my red duffel coat.

lol at being aligned to the north koreans.

As if anyones going to be thinking that?

Given the number of guardsmen and Chelsea pensioners wearing red, you'll look as if you are paying a tactful tribute - it's clearly the second dominant colour of the funeral.

so kotinka we've established that I can't wear red for the sake of korea. now, im currently in black pyjamas lazy I know is there any problem with black? am I offending anyone in australia perhaps? and while im at it, I was planning on putting a green top in today.... any problems there..?grin

In fact, after reading this thread and realising I was wearing a red top, I've changed it for a grey one. Thanks OP!

Well as long as you feel like you are achieving something thats the main thing confused

Branleuse Wed 17-Apr-13 10:35:19

yep careful.

Dont want anyone thinking you object to spending 10 million on a politicians funeral in times of austerity

Branleuse Wed 17-Apr-13 10:36:12

obviously wearing red isnt enough. Maybe i should go and protest in london instead?

Dawndonna Wed 17-Apr-13 10:36:38

Apologies Kotinka

I think its pretty well known that red is associated with communism. I don't think anyone needs me to make that particular association!

scaevola Wed 17-Apr-13 10:47:43

The bit of the coverage I've just seen has a lot of red (uniforms, and the Union Flag on the coffin is draped so red is showing dominantly).

It wouldn't have occurred to me, until I saw this thread, that wearing red today had any significance.
