      Leaked Letter From David Cameron To The British Armed Forces
      + + + + +
      “I appreciate that you may be a bit busy at the moment, fighting a pointless war in Afghanistan and looking forward to a summer holiday with your family, but just before I give 20,000 of you the sack would you mind awfully helping out at a small sporting event we are holding in London, later on this month.
      You see, I have just given £475,000,000 to a private company called G4S, who were supposed to be handling security arrangements for the London 2012 Olympics, but they appear to have trousered the cash without actually providing an adequate service. However, I have managed to wangle an old warehouse for you to kip down in and some army rations left over from WW2, not ideal I know, but hey you should be used to lack of equipment and facilities by now.
      Gotta keep the costs down and all that. LOL.
      Many thanks,
      David Cameron.

      PS Theresa May will sort out the details as I’m off to a sun-kissed beach for 4 weeks. OK, yah!”

        yes and Hollande, the French socialist president is up in arms too about it, haven’t you heard that he is going to do all he can to save the Euro, and that includes having mass unemployment. Surely you must have missed his statements about the 25% unemployment in Spain! He is more interested in saving the euro than peoples jobs, you prat!

        let these countries go back to governing themselves with their own currency. It is the only solution

        They should have done it 4 years ago and they all would 4 years better on their way to recovery, but they are ofcourse now 4 years worse off!

    Still no response from any one on the left about forcing unemployment up in order to save the Euro? 25% unemployment in Spain! Doesn’t any one care? These figures are astronomical, leading to social unrest. It’s the same in Greece and on its way in Portugal too.

    Is unemployment only important if it’s a conservative administration causing the unemployment?

    In its desire to paper over the complexities and contradictions of real life, kitsch, Milan Kundera suggested, is intimately linked with totalitarianism. In a healthy democracy, diverse interest groups compete and negotiate with one another to produce a generally acceptable consensus; by contrast, “everything that infringes on kitsch,” including individualism, doubt, and irony, “must be banished for life” in order for kitsch to survive.

    We have presented to the world a textbook example of the kitsch that is Britain’s elites vision of itself.

    In terms of extravganza to fit greatest show on earth , I would think its up there with the best , stadium pixels and whole arena used to good effect all dazzels and lights very good , the rings comming together , managed to create party atmosphere for those in stadium and atheletes , some genuine wow moments , nice touch with heatherwick olympic flame . being as loads of people around the world were watching who dont live in the Uk using some film moments probebly made sense .
    What annoyed me the most was near total selection of youth pop music , there was no greace or elegance to some of scenes , even one with LSE doing chariots of fire , had Mr bean in it .Beckenham looked cool .The complete lack of beautiful classical british music in sets was a miss , why not some Elgar or Delius . No tribute to shakespear , magna charter , churchill (other animating his statue in video piece) , could have had some wonderful pastoral scenes . Dont know why NHS was included , or for that matter choice of childrens stories not including CS lewis , no mention of cathedrals or christianity ……. No marching military bands , no Irish or Scottish dancing , no welsh tenor or saprano . I would have 3 minis red white and blue doing theme tune from Italian Job

    Bit with Queen and bond would have been more thoughtful if helicopter had landed in stadium (I know wires for show and cameras made it impossible), and lost phone piece was hard to describe what it was saying about britain even with Tim Berners lee surprise .

    Musically a let down (even though I liked some of the pop music) and hsitorically a bit liberal and leftie in portrayal in some themes . Entertaining certainly , poster for labour ???…. mmm some of comments above seem to ponder if it wasnt somthing of Blairs delayed fuses ,

    Overall we are the hosts , we can do this and will do it , we can do a good job despite a bucket load of leftie rubbish , make it the world class sporting event it is and do our bit .

    Watching it tonight and the reaction online is quite depressing.

    I think it’s probably all over. Many on here are patriots but we have no-one to represent us or stand up for the England we love.

    There are now so many indigenous people who believe that mass immigration is a good thing and that to have their homeland stolen from them is modern and exciting.

    All societies die eventually. And ours is doing so I fear. At least we had our glory days that will live in the history books long after Kevin Maguire, Stan Collymore, Sally Bercow, the fucking NHS, BBC, multiculturalism, Obama worship etc is all just a bad memory.

    There have been dark ages before and we are entering one now. The ancient Athenians died. The Romans died. And now the English too.

    But we can remain proud of the achievements over the centuries, we lasted longer than most.

      In the last 100 years Britain has literally save the world from 2 great evils – first naziism, then communisim, as well as creating the anglosphere in previous centuries. Watching last night, I got the impression that Britain’s contribution to world history was a few second rate pop songs, some even mimed badly.

    (Note that in the recent BBC’s ‘Hollow Crown’ version of Henry V, the Duke of York was ridiculously played by a b**** man. And that after all the whinging that was made whenever a white actor played Othello)

    I would also have had some praise made to JRR Tolkien – seeing as Boyle seemed to have copied the hill from the Shire followed by the Scouring of the Shire.

    There was far too much dancing and pop and the NHS was a shameless political statement. The NHS is nothing to be proud of. There are many better health services with much better records than that. Surely the patients are far more important than those working in it.
