Our soldiers come home--the lucky ones hale and hearty, others wounded, sometimes so badly that their lives will be ruined for ever. And all too often as above, clothed in pine.
I find it utterly REPREHENSIBLE that, because of some governmental cock-up--and virtually every problem in this country is by way of a governmental cock-up, no matter what other excuses they may give--that our soldiers, coming home on leave, are going to be expected to augment the farce known as the London Olympics.
THESE PEOPLE HAVE FOUGHT FOR THEIR COUNTRY AND SHOULD BE SHOWN THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE AND BE ALLOWED TO SPEND THIS INVALUABLE TIME WITH THEIR FAMILIES, WHO NEVER KNOW WHEN THEY ARE GOING TO SEE THEM AGAIN.
The London Olympics will be remembered as one of the greatest charades in our history. Britain won't win many models because not enough money is given to train our athletes as well as they should be trained--too much money is being wasted on ridiculous cuts, and by giving charitable donations and bail-outs to those who should be financing their own mistakes. I'm sure that if we were in the fix, these people wouldn't come rushing to our aid.
As if we won't have enough to worry about with security alerts there will be strikes, go-slows, vastly inflated prices, anything by greedy people to disrupt this ceremony for their own aims. There may be a sighting of Lord Lucan, or something similar. Good people from around the world who have saved up for years to come here will be leaving, telling their friends what a shit-hole Britain has become, and through absolutely no fault of its people--but those at the top, who in their entire lives have never known what it is like to want, to go without, to suffer.
So, Messieurs Cameron and Clegg, the arch buffoons in Britain's expanding Circus of Misery, what are you going to do about this latest folderol--blame someone else?
This seems to be the trend nowadays, whatever the problem.
