I nearly choked on my bran flakes whilst watching BBC News just now.
There was the Olympic torch being jogged through south London, en route to the Globe Theatre, through a mass of the populace who had crowded the footways to see it pass. Hundreds, if not a thousand or more, were saluting it - with nazi salutes! I was horrified.
Then I realised.....mobile phone cameras.
Stand down the stewards - what stewards? The G4S stewards. They didn't turn up, hence the police. "Alas, poor Buckles, I knew him".
Still, at least I didn't brand south Londoners as a bunch of nazis on purpose.
(by the way, did G4S bid to run the stadium big screen video package job, by any chance?)
There was some sad news this morning. A Greek javelin thrower failed a `dope` test and was withdrawn. Putting a positive spin on it, does that meant he actually passed a `stupid` test?
The original Globe theatre was burnt to the ground when some loon lit a torch during a production.
