I liked this reader’s comment:
“After the paramilitaries scuffled their way through the London leg of the torch relay I don’t think Britain requires advice on what’s “arrogant, rude and disrespectful” from China. Likewise, an unbuttoned Boris was an ideal pin with which to prick the pompous re-enactment of the “Triumph of the Will” that was the closing ceremony.”
Yeah, China is only arrogant enough to kill Tibetan protesters.
you know what is sad
I am from England and will guarantee that instead of displaying aspects of Britain, the history etc they will concentrate on multiculturalism ..Already some do not want the red arrows(Britains equal to the blue angels ) because it is too military and it might offend some .
They’ll be marching by the Islamic squad, then followed by the Sikh Indians and then have Pakistani music playing.
If you want to see the most PC olympics ever then tune into London in 4 years
Most free countries don’t have a pool of a billion ‘volunteers’ to pull from. The Chinese Ceremonies looked impressive, but at what cost? I imagine the treatment of the ‘volunteers’ would compare to the treatment at most of their sweatshops, but without the generous 10 cent per hour pay. I enjoyed the duo with Jimmy Paige and whoever that pop singer was.
I heard in England, they were taking odds on whether Boris would accidently drop the olympic flag during waving it. He’s knows as a being a bit accident prone.
They should be ashamed they weren’t wearing neon spandex and riding around on those gyro-cars from South Park like their gracious hosts.
Who is he and is he a long lost son of Benny Hill?
