Dismayed at Olympic show; FEEDBACK 1.
But of course this ceremony was a spectacular start to the opposite ... individual achievement of the highest order by disciplined athletes representing nations and their individual cultures.
I also objected of course to references to CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament) and the disastrous NHS (whose incompetence killed one of my friends and condemned others to premature deaths) I always find it amusing that the Left parades the Jarrow March as a Left-wing cause but in fact the march was in support of a private capitalist company Palmers, which had been closed by a combination of the Government and the Bank of England arbitrarily deciding that Palmers shipyards should close so that politically better connected yards could stay open! A classic socialist stitch-up!
Ninety five per cent of the world wide audience would have been perplexed and most of the British audience, educated by a socialist education system, would have been equally ignorant of the allusions!
