The Olympics- Don't you just love em?

Without in any way diminishing my belief that the Olympic Games as it is should be scrapped and instead held every four years in Greece, I would like to congratulate the men and women who are competing, the organisers for bringing together this sporting spectacle and the fans who attend in their hundreds of thousands for demonstrating the power of sport in uniting the peoples of the world.
As we have seen with the Jubilee and royal weddings, nobody can put on a show like the Brits even if they must allow announcements to be spoken in French first, rather than in English. I hope that the politicians don't try to muscle in on the Glory that rightfully belongs to those with the vision, the organising skill and determination to succeed in making these games both a sporting extravaganza in the present and a lasting  regeneration of a run down area of London for centuries to come.
