Half-way there and All’s Well – sort of.

Whilst it’s been a great week for the Olympics and Team GB – and I don’t just mean the athletes; everybody in the country has put on a great show for the world and the enthusiastic support from spectators for all the competitors (especially if they’re from Team GB) has been superb. The organisers have been building a great team to put on the Games and the British Olympic Committee have spent the last seven years building a team that wins medals.

And we’ve only got one thing wrong.

Why oh why did we tell everybody to keep out of London – and our good old public servants to ‘work from home’ (i.e. lie in, shop and watch the telly) – in the mistaken belief that London was going to be sooo busy.

London seems to manage ok normally in July/August when it’s rammed with tourists and it manages ok when there’s also a test at Lords, Rugby at Twickenham and a couple of Premier League fixtures taking place happening simultaneously with a gig by some pimply pop star I’ve never heard of. So what’s the big deal?

For months it’s been a source of wonder to me at the fuss being made and why Boris wasn’t serving his electorate by telling one and all that London was open to business and they should ignore the sirens of despair instead of which he was bunging ‘Olympic Bonuses’ to transport workers so that they would do what they were already paid to do.

Now that it’s been shown that additional burdens have not been put upon these heroic workers can we have our money back please?

Actually I lied. We actually got two things wrong. We insulted the bunch of psychopathic maniacs that passes for a regime in North Korea by waving the South Korean flag at them. Awesome. A truly inspired insult which deserves a special gold medal all of its own for the person responsible.

Whereas in reality no doubt some jobsworth undoubtedly castigated him/her rather than congratulating them.
