Watching a great programme on BBC One about the Torch Relay - Im almost sorry the Olympics are mere hours away and it's coming to an end.

Just inspired the entire summer (of sorts!) here in the UK, Jubilee street parties and the Torch Relay.

Complete strangers actually TALKED to each other - it was amazing. I'll never forget this summer (and not just for the mainly shite weather!!)

I agree - it's been a lovely tour of our great United Kingdom - some great sites and amazing stories!!

I went to see it come through my local town - it poured down but I stood with many others for over an hour to see the torch go past chatting and laughing with people I had never met before and will probably never see again. We only saw the torch for a few minutes but I was glad I went - even if I had to go home and change out of damp wet clothes. I just did what all true brits do - I made and cup of tea and had a digestive biscuit (or two ;))

PMl at Boris Johnson in Hyde Park :rofl: -Politically correct as ever :D




As the crowd chanted his name, the Mayor predicted that Team GB would "win more gold, silver and bronze medals than you need to bail out Greece and Spain together".
