It must be heady, intoxicating, to be a nothing, to volunteer for the Olympics and then to start ordering people about, clipboard in hand, telling world ranked international athletes to stand in line:
# I’ve just been to the Olympic Park and the area around it is filled with people in pink jackets who are ordering everyone on the right to move to the left, everyone on the left to move to the right, everyone who stops for a second MUST immediately move on and everyone moving on MUST immediately turn back or move to the side or stop.
# I think it’s great that he spoke the truth about how he was treated. He has a massive voice and carries a lot more weight than ever you or I could achieve. Why should he be treated like a half wit and tolerate it. Difference is the state can’t arrest him for pissing the establishment off.
But there always has to be one, doesn’t there?
Rules are there to give order to proceedings which involve so many participants, customs, cultures, languages. I think he is just being petulant. Being a fast runner does not entitle him to have his way on everything.
Rules are rules and zey are to be obeyed at all times!! All rules must be blanket, no exceptions [unless you are of the criminal class above us].
And another thing:
What is all this about the gold medal winners having to carry round the life sized one-eyed cyclops mascot dummies – what gold medalist wants to be hampered lugging that crap around ?
Yep – notice Bolt didn’t want his, it was forced on him and he offloaded it at the first opportunity – how utterly puerile, how utterly New Britain. When you infantilize a nation, it acts like infants.
