Olympic Hopefuls

The grovelling we have witnessed this week towards visiting IOC officials has left me thinking that we've lost any true sense of national pride. I won't comment on the seedy history of the modern Olympic movement, there's more than enough material to keep one busy but visits to number 10, tea with the Queen and what appears to be super-diplomatic privilege turns me off the entire idea of this potentially expensive beauty contest which may yet end with British taxpayers picking-up the bill, as promised last week to the IOC visitors by Chancellor, Gordon, "I've a huge budget deficit" Brown.
