We Now Return You To Your Normal Programming

Now that the Beijing Olympic Games has drawn to a close you will be subjected to the usual amount of crass public commentary, silly jokes and observations of pathetic behaviour that you have become accustomed to.

And the first observation of pathetic behaviour of note is that of the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson. At the handover of the IOC flag from China he ponced around with his hand in his pocket, didn’t hold the flag pole correctly so that he could wave it and after shaking the hand of IOC President Jacques Rogge he just saluted the Chinese official. I was a little astounded at his ignorance of official decorum and lack of dignity. Is this what we have to look forward to with the London 2012 Olympics? Let’s hope not. They won’t be perfect like Beijing 2008 as that’s not the British way. Stiff upper lip through all the balls-ups, and all that.

I wonder what his real surname is. Boris sounds too Russian to be English, what?
