That’s it; they’re all over. No more Olympics, ever. (I can only wish…)
With the benefit of hindsight, it’s astounding that no one saw this coming. As the Olympic torch splashed through the canoe slalom venue in Essex today on board a raft as part of its journey around the country, spraying water splashed out the famed Eternal Flame.
Yes, who authorized that? Brilliant. He or she should be made the most senior civil servant in the land, as he / she is eminently qualified…
Day 50 proved a tricky one for the torch relay, after a crash between two motorcycles earlier forced a delay and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s turn carrying the flame was marred by pouring rain.
What, has cooking become an Olympic sport now? If so, Jamie Oliver would have to make way for the more fiercely competitive ‘Iron Chef’ types.
