Thank god it’s over

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Beijing Olympics has finally, finally finished.  Thank christ for that, perhaps now we can get back to normality?

The Olympics is shit, the Beijing Olympics has been shit and the London Olympics is going to be unbelievably shit.

China shouldn’t have been given a second thought when it put in a bid for the Olympics.  Being given the Olympics sent a message to oppresive, human rights abusing dictators all over the world – keep doing what you’re doing and you will be accepted.

It will be difficult to top the tickery, fakery and general naffness of the Beijing opening and closing ceremonies but London will manage to make 2012 even more shit.  You just can’t have what is still nominally a socialist government handling a multi-billion pound spectacle without it being turned into an absolute crock of steaming horse shit.

    I’m glad it’s over too – not least because of the rampant Scots/Welsh/British nonsense spouted by the media – and Gordon Brown using the circus for his own ends.

    Completely spot on!, but be cheered by the fact that Broon and McLabour will be out by a huge landslide two years prior to the 2012 Londonistan games.

    If he loses his seat will he be punted upstairs to the Lords or will he have to come back here?
