I thought before today that London would have a job eclipsing the Chinese but this closing ceremony has bored me near to death. A couple of Steel Bands and the Pearly King and Queen will show them how to do it.
Just another thought, are the Chinese being extremely petty or are the American team not attending the closing ceremony? I have not seen any sign of their flag or athletes! nor, come to think of it have the French been shown.
FE. My mince pies are crying with laughter at the thought of you giving out Cockney rhyming slang. I'd better sit down or my old Roberta Flack will give up on me. I've got a funny feeling that your accent is far from being a cockney one.
