Look at the medals table and answer me this, how in the name of Jehovah can South Korea and Australia be ahead of us in the medals standings. For Gawd's sake I could understand if it was rice growing or micro chip making or bloody surfing or prawn barbieing but bloody winter sports, come on to blazes; there's some bams on a wedge from the lottery fund that are not producing the goods.
And whilst am on, speed skating aside, what chance do the dutch get to practise downhill ski-ing.

GB is not really a winter sports nation due to our climate.
one thing did puzzle me I saw at montegobay airport that jamaica used to have a bobsleigh team i would have thought snow would occur much in the mountain tops out there, unless they had an artificial run.
1. All our school playing fields have been sold to developers. 2. Wouldn't matter if we still had any because children are not allowed to be competetive any more (we can't have losers as they might get upset). 3. Head teachers fear of Health and Safety legislation means kids are not even let out to play in the snow in case they hurt themselves. That is if the school hasn't been closed because of the snow. .......
