So a political message to Cameron, huh.

I thought he looked pissed off when the cameras caught him leafing through the schedule instead of paying attention. :)

Overall, not as tacky as I thought they would be, but very standard and 3rd world-ish in pomposity. From singing "Jerusalem" to "Abide with me" and every little carefully selected little bit of history in between ...

Mary Poppins ... :lol:

How is it that the Brits don’t have a history yet they’ve existed for millenniums?

What kind of stupidities are some of you manufacturing in your heads? :?

Who said they don't have a history? (Magna Carta, Shakespeare, Cromwell, the British Empire, Abolition of Slavery, Churchill etc)

Only they gave more time to Harry Potter, Mary Poppins and Mr. Bean. If you've got a culture and a history then don't be embarrassed about it. Celebrate it.

Watching that incoherent mess of an Opening Ceremony you'd think they were ashamed of their history ... Don't you agree, GR?
