Every morning I have a shower and a tea and watch the BBC News Channel (I probably would watch Sky News except the editorial is identical and they have adverts and all I want is to discover the basics. It is currently on about the Olympics because they are lighting the torch. According to the BBC wonkette sent to Olympus for no apparent reason other than her jollies if lighting it from the Sun doesn’t work they have a “back-up” or a box of matches. The BBC wonkette is now interviewing a woman who has lived in Olympia for ten years. Like Wow! Apparently there are many VIPs there. Well, I guess the local prostitutes need employment as much as the next person. Which brings to mind something I saw earlier this morning. According to the BBC News we are facing “Pubic Sector Strikes”. Public Sector I can cope with but if the pubic sector goes we is fucked (or rather not). They are reading a poem now. In Greek. Now I appreciate the Bubbles are the cradle of Western Civilization but to paraphrase Tsiolokovsky (or Goddard or Von Braun or any of the rest…)
Some Greek fucker is now wittering on about peace and how he reckons we can keep the flame burning – he ought to go to Syria. Well, yeah if Putin doesn’t turn the gas off.
And moreover how the bastarding fuck does this promote peace? Some bugger is now saying spending a fortune on a sacred flame is saving Greece. No it isn’t. Not having blown squillions up the wall would have been better for a nation on it’s arse. Greece is on it’s absolute arse and we are getting there.
Now Seb Coe is talking about how twats stealing money from ordinary folks promotes peace. Not in my head it don’t. Seb Coe is standing on the original running track in Olympia. I bet that didn’t cost 20 billion quid. I’m really annoyed now. Peace and Friendship and all! Just learned something. The lighting of the flame is “strictly for the VIPs”. Well, it would be wouldn’t it?
