A few weeks back, I made the following post on Facebook, expressing my dissatisfaction towards the amount of government funding being injected into the Olympic games:
Despite viewing the games as an obvious “cover up” for the real problems Britain is facing at this point in time, I did say to myself I would support the athletes and maybe watch the odd event on TV, if I found the time.
Discovering later on this evening that the opening ceremony had clearly wound up Tory MPs, EDL members and anyone concerned with how “multicultural” the games appeared to be, I found myself drawn into the Olympics that little bit further.
Take a look at this wanker by the name of Aidan Burley (Conservative MP), who expressed on Twitter his paranoia about how the games were being run by “lefties”:
David Vance — “Right of liberal, deficit realist, editor of ‘A Tangled Web’ and ‘Biased BBC'” — seconds this:
(I’m guessing they didn’t like the NHS tribute, then?)
Meanwhile, EDL member Marc Hagan has an obvious problem with black kids:
(Obviously, he failed to recognize the amount of Muslim women representing their countries in this year’s games; and white and black people mixing with one another, clearly demonstrating multiculturalism is doing just fine, despite his whining.)
All the fancy stuff of the opening ceremony won’t paper over all the cracks of a Government-back Olympic games, but it served to annoy a number of Tory/far-right fuckheads. That’ll do at least.
