How About Postponing The London Olympics Till Better Days?

How About Postponing The London Olympics Till Better Days?

R.F.Wilson writes from London: How about postponing the London Olympics till better days, when there would be money available to blow on useless sporting events that benefit admirers of obscure competitions, local officials and hookers and drug dealers mostly. Notice that I am not suggesting cancelling them altogether, for fear of upsetting all those devoted fans and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that for some unknown reason carries way too much weight. Let’s face it, Britain simply doesn’t have the financial muscle to host the Olympic Games. Yes, sure, at the moment the official budget stands at £10 billion, with the bill for providing security suddenly increasing by $500 million all of a sudden recently, but in reality it’s going to be much higher. Take the recent hikes... 

You Know What? F..k Sport And All That Comes With It!

You Know What? F..k Sport And All That Comes With It!

R.F.Wilson writes from London: You know what? F..k sport and all that comes with it, like meaningless sports news, endless sports coverage on the box, football and more bloody football and all those stupid interviews that sportsmen give that contain nothing of any relevance. And to hell with the hurt feelings of fans who are too thick to be interested in something worthwhile, getting all aggressive if you say a critical word about their favourite teams or players. It’s like some bloody mafia that is intimidating everyone who has no interest in sports. Look at what these football fans have done to Britain: Welsh national football team manager Gary Speed hangs himself and they turn their mourning into some sort of never ending ritual, as if he was a saint or something. No one is saying that... 

The Cambridges Choose Another ‘Worthwhile’ Cause To Champion

The Cambridges Choose Another ‘Worthwhile’ Cause To Champion

Adam Lovejoy writes from London: Have you heard the great news? The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry have agreed to become the official ambassadors for Team GB that would represent the Kingdom at the London Summer 2012 Olympics. Is it cool or what? Kate and the guys would be travelling around the country, telling everyone to support the British Olympic team. They will also attend training camps and help find future Olympians. Not to mention joining the Queen at the opening ceremony in June next year. So excited is Kate at the prospect that orders for new outfits with sporty motifs have already been placed. But enough of this rubbish! The Cambridges should find something more worthwhile to do, especially as the announcement of their latest stunt has coincided with news... 

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Stirring Trouble Team

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Stirring Trouble Team

Today we present more pearls of wisdom and witty observations. From the boys at Stirring Trouble. I bet the bankers are laughing at the ease with which they’ve managed to keep themselves out of trouble by redirecting the press and the public to other matters. You can’t have a free market that is operated by dishonest people. Once business ethics go, the concept of a free market goes as well. I notice that a lot of so-called religious people pray to God but turn to the devil when they need to raise some money. You know those titles and honours, they always go to the wrong sort of people. I mean Lord Prescott and Lord Sugar. It just ain’t right. The number of women over 40 with tattoos seems to be growing by the day. The silly c..ts are ready to do anything to get noticed. Don’t blame...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Stirring Trouble Team

Today we present more pearls of wisdom and witty observations. From the boys at Stirring Trouble. Don’t you just love the way British politicians, who’ve weaselled their way into power by constantly lying to their voters, get all emotional about hacks tapping phones. So you watch the X Factor and Eastenders religiously. How the hell do you expect to understand anything when it comes to real life? It’s official: money laundering will be included in the events programme of 2012 London Olympics. Let’s be blunt about it: people who obsess about celebs are thick. I’d even say bordering on brain dead. Since becoming a free mason a year ago David Cameron sure made all the right moves. Sad pathetic people, holding on to their mobiles to show others that they have a life. Mobiles... 

Britain’s Olympic Committee Knows Things About The War In Libya That Politicians Don’t

Britain’s Olympic Committee Knows Things About The War In Libya That Politicians Don’t

R.F.Wilson writes from London: So how long do you think the war in Libya is going to last: a month, two months or six? Well, judging by some recent developments it could actually go on for a year at least, if not longer. And that would mean that Britain, for example, might go bankrupt by that time, as it has already blown something like half a billion on all the bombings and missile launches and arming the rebels and giving them money to play with to keep their morale high. Some even say that it’s a billion already that has been spent on the war, but then again no one should think that establishing democracy in North Africa would come cheap. Anyway, the latest giveaway for the length of time it would take NATO to get rid of Colonel Gaddafi and his henchmen came from the organising committee... 

I Hope Sepp Is Re-Elected And All This Corruption Nonsense Is Laid To Rest

I Hope Sepp Is Re-Elected And All This Corruption Nonsense Is Laid To Rest

Ben Delicious writes from Zurich: Big fuss continues around allegations of corruption at the world football’s governing body Fifa. Serious doubts are cast on the re-election of Sepp Blatter, Fifa’s President, although Fifa has announced that it is going on with the vote, despite coming under pressure to postpone it. Will Fifa eventually show two fingers to the hacks, who are pretending that they have uncovered a wasp’s nest of corruption and are basking in the spotlight of their own righteousness. I hope the world football’s governing body does the right thing and tells all the scribblers to go f..k themselves. Why? Because everyone knows that all professional sport is riddled with corruption, starting from football and athletics and ending with some obscure sport like curling. That’s... 

Mass Outpourings Of Joy: What’s That All About?

Mass Outpourings Of Joy: What’s That All About?

Adam Lovejoy writes: You must have seen it dozens of times on the box: crowds of people rejoicing on the streets. Men, women and children, waving frantically and hugging and kissing each other, as if their lives were suddenly transformed by some miraculous occurrence. Hacks picking out the most cheerful individuals and asking them how they felt. ‘I am so happy,’ you would hear them say. ‘It’s the most wonderful day in my life.’ Or something very similar to that. Many of these mass outpourings of joy are sport related, like it happened in Spain recently that celebrated its national team’s victory in the World Cup in South Africa. Even more remarkably similar mass celebrations took place in Argentina that was knocked out of the World Cup, and yet the people of that proud nation decided...

My Advice To London’s Mayor Boris Johnson: Pull The Plug On 2012 Olympics

Now that everyone in Britain apart from Lord Coe accepts that it would not be a great idea to host the summer Olympic Games in 2012 in London, considering that there is no money available, StirringTroubleInternationally once again calls on London’s Mayor Boris Johnson to make that crucial decision and simply pull the plug on the Games. Yes, after the Government itself accepted last year that had it known that a crisis was coming it would have rejected the idea of staging the Games in London, Mr Johnson should tell the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that the British capital simply does not have the money to provide the same level of organisation as the Chinese did in 2008. Because, so that you know, that is what the President of the IOC, Jacques Rogge, has demanded. He wants London...

President Obama Gets Humiliated In Copenhagen. Even Though It Was Predictable

That was one big public relations disaster that the U.S. President Barack Obama has suffered: imagine, he flew to Denmark for the sole purpose of helping to secure Chicago’s bid to stage the Summer Olympics of 2016, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC), very publicly, ignored his pleas and awarded the Games to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro.Who on earth in the White House came up with this stupid idea in the first place? Because Mr Obama himself could not have decided to jet off to Europe, to spend five hours in Copenhagen, telling the IOC how Chicago was the best city in the world for hosting the 2016 Olympics, and then fly back home. At a time when more pressing matters demanded his attention in the United States. The White House advisors should have foreseen a situation when...
