Olympic Rant

Thank goodness the horrible Boris Johnson has faded out of the limelight and into the sewer with Rupert Murdoch, where he really belongs.
After scaring people out of London with his silly chummy Olympic message, broadcast on every tube platform on the network, he pursued more 'antics' (getting stuck on a zipwire) before the media finally appeared to realise that the Olympic Games is about sporting success and not about bumbling, publicity seeking middle aged men in ill-fitting suits.
What a relief it is to watch young people excelling at sports, and how good it feels that in the UK we have teams that reflect the many different cultures who have made their home here.
I am not into sports at all but you'd have to be an idiot not to see what it means to a lot of people, and not to appreciate what a great supporting crowd there is at every Olympic venue.
