Well, he's a damn sight better than Billy from Eastenders carrying the torch, I'll give you that!He's not but he's put a hell of a lot of effort into ensuring there is an Olympics here in London and for that I do not begrudge him his recognition for his contribution
Ah, but then we'll have another 4 years of public adulation for all the medalists, and then, there will be the build up to the next games with all the same medalists being looked at constantly to see if they can do the same again.Amen to that brother.
The other morning on BBC Breakfast (no longer Breakfast News I notice), they were saying how they were in a studio overlooking the Olympic Park for the next few weeks. The presenter was pointing out the stadium, the sculpture thing and so on, and then said something along the lines of "Over in that direction is Walford, where the torch will be later today"Well, he's a damn sight better than Billy from Eastenders carrying the torch, I'll give you that!
Well he's never going to suffer that fate, given his millions, but closer to home and at his side, she may be an advert for hunger!Every time I see his photo, I can't help but thinking 'twonk'.
I'm sure he has done a great deal of work for the games (off the back of who he is) and so he deserves acknowledgement for that.
I read that he is/was to discuss world hunger with David Cameron.... I slept easily knowing the resolution was imminent.
As I don't live in London the inconvenience to me is minimal but at least now its finally happening. We can just sit down and watch some people who have worked very hard for years to prepare, have their moment in the spotlight. I at least have more respect for the athletes than I do for footballers who we get 24/7 the rest of the time. The football is the only bit I will be turning off deliberately.
