The bloody olympics

Is it only me or does anyone else think that the closing ceremony for the Olympics is crap? What a total waste of time, effort and money? These end of games events try to outdo each other in their complexity, people organising, people moving (alla Nazi and Communist propaganda films), waste of timing and fireworks displays. You sit there and think, 'what the fuck', 'impressive or what?' and the commentator explains the symbolism to you. So what's the point of the symbolism if you can't work out what's going on? It's all a load of bollocks. Leona, who the fuck, Lewis and Jimmy Page are supposed to wet our appetites for the London games. NO THEY DON'T. Grandpa and granddaughter. It was toe curlingly naff. Naff, naff, enough.

Look, I enjoyed our success, a gold a day was a good effort. There was some really good stuff but, way ahead, the best bit for me, was the Spanish synchronised swimming team. What a bunch of good looking women, frolicking about in the water. Delicious. Tell me they're not on drugs?

Well said Alex. Quite agree what a shambles an exploding bus, very London. It makes me wonder what has happened to the UK.
