London 2012: Oh dear me

Judging by the eight minute performance at the Beijing Olympics closing ceremony, I believe that London has cocked it up big time. Talk about being utterly predictable and well, rubbish. I have no idea why Michael Johnson thought the segment was wonderful. Everyone here was stunned silence by the unremarkable and frankly cringeworthy performance.

Team GB looks miserable during the party when other nations were having a wild time. Even the double decker buses in London isn't like that (oh I wish it was). And Boris with that unbuttoned jacket... at least he got the flag, maybe he ought to be in the relay team.

Anyway the whole 16 days has been wonderful. Thanks to the BBC for the TV coverage and congratulations to China for a great event.

I wish I had more of a chance to watch it, but I agree, the coverage I did see was excellent.

Hopefully the Paralympics will receive similar coverage.
