Something Sensational To Read On The Train

I’m so bored with the O Lym Pics (continued)

This diversion came as a welcome relief from all the back slapping and embarrassing drivel we’ve been presented with recently.





It would have been wonderful to have seen the horrified expression on the faces of the politicians and the London 2012 organisers.


I did not watch the closing ceremony, but the British segment does seem to have been quite excruciating.  The inclusion of David Beckham atop an open top Routemaster, combined with Jimmy Page accompanied with vocal refrain from someone from the X Factor does not come across as cutting edge, and reflects a complete lack of imagination (I assume that the X Factor singer was included because Robert Plant was wisely not available).  Had it is been 40 years earlier, then the sight of Bobby Moore et al atop the same Routemaster, with music provided by the up and coming Led Zepelling (or indeed Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd etc, etc), it would not have been embarrassing.


How wonderful it would have been for Londoners to be able to vote on whether the city should actually want to host the Olympics.  The ‘No’ campaign would have won with considerable ease.
