Something Sensational To Read On The Train

I’m so Bored with the O Lym Pics (Continued)

Well not so much bored as pissed off, but that’s too many syllables.  This story about the so called ‘Sporting Giants’ programme smacks of desperation, but the term “gravy train” springs to mind.  The fact that having an aptitude for the sprot in question, or indeed an interest in it, does not seem to be important makes me feel very cynical about all this.

How many I wonder of these ridiculous schemes are going to happen over the next 4 years, and how much of our money will be thrown away?  What makes me ‘laugh’ is that not all of the candidates were tall enough, and had to walk not only had to war platform heels but also tiptoed around!

So why not have other schemes where people of different body shapes are targeted?  It would also be possible to target people with Alopecia Universalis (who would have smooth, streamlined bodies) for swimming?
