Well our forecasted Indian Summer here in United Kingdom sort of lasted less than a week but as always the weatherman here are more opportunistic than accurate. It has always been difficult business to forecast the weather here and at least gives us here a lot of opportunity for small talk about the weather much to the amusement of the rest of the World.
Here the Olympic started in London and to be fair the people who have gone to actually watch the games have shown more enthusiasm than everyone else who not there. I watched the opening ceremony which was done to usual British style and contrary to nasty little Conservative MP was not really left wing but a celebration of our county.
As for the rest of the games they have already been marred by politics this time from America who have managed to insult the United Kingdom twice, the first time Mr Romney saying we were not ready closely followed by the United States media blatantly editing out the 7/7 memorial in the Opening Ceremony replacing it with a banal interview. Personally it shows the arrogance of some Americans who believe they were only people in the world to face an attack in 11/7. I have news for them the rest of the world have been facing terrorist attacks since the 6os and all I can say to these Americans get over it like the rest of us or just ship out!
These insults have already ruined the spirit of this years Olympic Games for me so I will not be watching it as much as I would of done.
