Three hours, £27 million pounds spent, ’nuff very typical British complaints, and one offensive tweet from Piers Morgan later and the Olympic opening ceremony has come to an end. Was all that commentary of civil war, rebel violence or drug trade when certain countries passed through really necessary? Ah well, despite that (and the very questionable un-mixed soundtrack) I’m finally feeling kinda excited and proud of my city right now. I think certain hotties wearing nothin’ but grass skirts had something to do with it (I see you Fiji!) Also, it was very difficult not to get emotional seeing Team Syria, Doreen Lawrence and Muhammed Ali passing through… And of course GRIME got a mention!
Let the games begin. Big up the first ever female athletes for Saudi Arabia, Brunei and Qatar, GO Team GB – 541 strong… and God help TFL.
