I cannot remember the last day, that I wasn't reminded of Britains slide toward corruption and the increasing curb of personal liberty.
I see daily how the country is in a frenzy of excitement as the sacred flame from Greece makes its way to the Hackney and Stratford Olympics, whipped up by an on message BBC, who blandly cover the hysterical scenes daily and at times hourly on BBC news channel with absolutely no journalistic treatment whatsoever basically, BBC which often kids us about its fearsome independence but is acting like sleazy Public relations outfit.
I know I'm a miserable cynic and yes of course there is nothing wrong with celebrating this event, but that said, a news channel is surely for news items, the daily six o'clock news is for news. I just wonder if they have to devote so much airtime, maybe they could perhaps question aspects of the PR fest such as the CO2 emissions from all this malarkey.
Any how as it happens I was reminded by a helpful email informing me by Transport for London of the more details on how occupation forces of Olympic dignitaries top knobs and honest Olympic committee members from tinpot countries will be riding roughshod over the travelling public during the events.
Still I suppose the fantasy of the Hackney and Stratford Olympics, is preferable to the ragbag of bent cabinet ministers, crooked cops and journalists we hear so much of.
