Forgot to check how Spain did in Beijing-no doubt by the time London arrives the Catalans (like our friends North of the Border) will have demanded their own team.
Wonder if the SNP would have been so vocal without Hoy?
(that should wind our Northern cousins up some what but that is nothing to Val's wrath-she is half Scottish).
Have also enjoyed winding up the Aussies with another blog

Quote from my posting
An Australian Olympic Swimming Official was quoted as saying
"The Poms won't win anything , they have got only two pools back home and very little soap"

Talk about eating humble pie - he should "get on his bike".
Just as well he is a Bongo not Japanese or the big knife would have been out!
ps. Am told the Aussies can take it as well as giving it out - we shall see!!

one reply was:-
that's not a whinge is it?????

To which I responded:-

Did you use the word whinge?
Smirking Pom more like it!
Anymore Pom bashing from you young colonists and we will empty our prisons (and our sink estates) and ship them down under (ensuring they bring loads of water to help you out, we've had a c..p summer and have loads to spare))
And you can have Kylie and Dame Edna back too.
That'll teach you.

ps. It is surprising we won anything - the schools ban sports days because "we have to be a team not individuals "and the Labour Government has sold off 2000+ sports fields and I cannot remember when a new pool was opened.
Three legged races ,sack races , and egg & spoon races are banned in schools because of the "Elf n Safety" police.
Role on the Commonwealth games - crown green bowling,tug of war,long plunge,french cricket and synchronised skipping will sort out the men from the boys. Loads more medals methinks!

We will see what transpires!
