One couldn’t help but notice at the end of Olympics that it was the Conservative Mayor Boris Johnson that took center stage, despite the fact the Prime Minister was in attendance. The parading of the Olympic flag signalled something much more significant. It was an indication of the fact that the future of the country was being handed to the Conservatives and it would be the Conservatives at the heart of 2012 Britain.
It was Labour and their officials that won the Olympics in 2005, despite a plethora of other Conservative and public figures lending a hand, yet it will be the Conservatives who reap the rewards and play host to the world in 2012. Gordon Brown did his best to try to up his profile at the hand over ceremony however the day belonged to bumbling but brilliant Boris.
You kow things are bad Gordon when you envy, and are overshadowed by, the bumbling blonde bombshell of London.
