The greatest show on earth…

Well was it?  Yes the official figures are out at it appears that nearly 27 million UK viewers at one point tuned into watching the Opening Ceremony. Well what did you think? As it started at first I thought it was going to be better than it was.  Yes we all love the English countryside…

Oh Lord….

Help me to keep my big mouth shut until I know what I am talking about… Yes, that is a brilliant campaign slogan for Mitt Romney… Especially after his fiasco questioning us Brits on the Olympics. One thing us Brits are good at is hosting a party or an event.  When it comes to showtime,…

Now where did I put that flag..

Black Cabbies – Olympic Nightmare

Now I don’t know about you, but when the winning bid was announced on the 6th July 2005, I jumped for joy.. my god Britain has won something.. how amazing.  Normally our bids are thrown away and scoffed at, but we managed it at long last… Bravo Britain. Little did I, like many others, realise…
