British Airport Authority have said that no reception should be held for the returning British Olympics men and women because of concerns for health and safety. This is consultant speak for “we’re to mean to fork out for organising this”. Instead we’re told that fans should wait for the official reception in October!
Britain has won the most medals ever in a century but some pen pushing bureaucrat thinks we should all wait until October to welcome the athletes home.
I just saw on the TV that in fact there is a reception being held at Heathrow but it consists of a grinning Gordon Brown.
What a mean spirited country we are.
