Boris Johnson:Lord of London’s Rings

Boris Johnson, and his five Olympic rings of virtue, or whatever…

Lord of the Rings!

On Wednesday 27th June, re-elected London Mayor Boris Johnson unveiled the five Olympic rings over the side of London Bridge, with Olympics organiser Lord (Sebastian) Coe.

Lord Coe, fresh off the Olympic torch relay run, fast-tracked into London to commemorate the event with the Mayor.

That’s a big boat…

After the glorious unveiling, good ‘ol Mayor Boris explained the meaning of the five rings, also poised by Channel 4 newscaster, Cathy Newman.

“Look at those five rings. Baron Pierre de Coubertin said that they symbolised the five great Olympic virtues of athleticism, sportsmanship, exertion, poverty, chastity…or whatever. Well, roughly those ones.”

The chastity claim was the killer line that made all burst out with a right ‘ol chuckle. Thank you Mr.Mayor.

The NEW Archbishop in 10-12 years?

So, Great Britain, what do the five rings stand for? Leave us a comment explaining their meaning. Perhaps you could become the Lord of the Rings.

The pinnacle of London Town 🙂

Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, quietly unmentioned on the sidelines, took a photo on his mobile phone, who has not been reprimanded for his grave misdemeanours surrounding the Leveson inquiry, phone hacking, and the Murdoch empire’s takeover bid of Media outlet BskyB.

Ever involved with his phone…
