David Cameron’s £93million bribe for London Mayor and taxpayers foot the bill

David Cameron’s £93million bribe for London Mayor

and taxpayers foot the bill

FF BOJO BRIBE copy

Further revelations from esteemed Tory peer Lord Ashcroft in a new biography about David Cameron reveal how he paid £93 million pound bribe to his former friend and University secret society member, Boris Johnson.

The book, being serialised all week long by the Daily Mail and co-written by award winning journalist Isabel Oakeshott reveals Cameron paid Boris, known as BoJo, to stop his “making mischief” in Tory election strategy.

Cameron, a member of the notorious Bullingdon Club, which is an upper elite boys club at University that burns money in front of poor people and trash restaurants for fun, has his co-member and cousin George Osborne to phone Boris Johnson, who was also in the club. The three are the most prolific chums to this day and have closely guarded secrets of one another’s debauchery since their privileged youth.

George Osborne was tasked with offering Johnson a waiver to quieten his behaviour. As editor of The Spectator magazine, Boris told the now Chancellor by chance, Osborne, Johnson was “looking at a blank page” Mr Osborne was notably worried and responded by offering Johnson a cool £93 billion pound bribe after BoJo asked for £90million for policing strategy in his bid for London Mayoral candidacy pledges. The order was also allegedly approved by David Cameron, allowing Osborne to seem in charge. Johnson previously threatened to demand a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, the Tory pair felt would jeopardise their political careers.

Mr Cameron and his close pal Osborne just bought another election through hush money. Bribery is often frowned upon with high extents of the law. Johnson joked “That was the best ever paid column.”

The-Bullingdon-Club-001

Lacking conviction, corrupt leader David Cameron charged the British taxpayer, in secret, with the public funds helping his, Osborne and Johnson’s political careers through the public purse, which is an act of treachery requiring prosecution. Cameron continues to be at the heart of political corruption on every choice he makes and has destroyed the fabric of the once great United Kingdom.

Even conning the taxpayer once again as enough for David Cameron and his chums to abuse the state and blame the poorest and most vulnerable as victims of such abuse. Alongside the working poor, Cameron has systematically thieved from the states own till and takes no accountability for his abuses. He blames the taxpayers and cheats them vividly. Great British values at its finest. Cameron has proven that he is no Christian he tries to hide behind and this is not at all about Conservatism. This is about one man abusing his right in a democratic nation for self-totalitarian rule at the expense of the public. Regardless of political affiliation, David Cameron has defrauded the public, their finances, public services and wages, a criminal action that he takes no responsibility for. It is time for the Met Police and the Supreme Court to intervene.

MagnaCarta

Cameron is not Conservative in the slightest and his public shadow is distorting the political process with democratic right Britain was once truly respected for. No one man is bigger than the country or its laws, no matter how much they may be changes to protect selves. That once again, is systemic corruption which holds no basis for defence.

Cameron has also attempted to denounce Magna Carta, in which all the laws of Cameron has broken and is bound by, as well as the general ones in existence today. You cannot simply whitewash the pre-text because you say so. That is not only corrupt, but a dictatorship.

London 2012, Closing Ceremony

London 2012 began its handover of the closing ceremony with a jam packed concert flowing from decades to showcase Great Britain’s best in the musical spectrum.

Leading us into the show was the gorgeous Emilie Sande a fresh new name who had made her own over the last year or so in today’s current era. After belting out read all about it atop a newspaper wrapped stage, refined actor Timothy Spall appeared out of the roof of Big Ben as politican Sir Winston Churchill.
Quoting superb lines from playwrite William Shakespeare, whom everyone can learn from, reading from the play, The Tempest, Spall did a pleasing job to star the ceremony, while most probably missed the Celloist Julian Llyod Webber below due to dodgy camera angles. Shakespeare, of course, was born in Straford upon Avon should any of you been unaware. The stadium was in Stratford, East London.
Jacques Rogge and Prince Henry of Wales were introduced as they took their seats. Many did not know the name of he prince and many viewers assume his was a mistake by broadcasters. Someone may wish to explain his name to others. He took his seat next to the Duchess of Cambridge, who married his brother and fututre King of England, Prince William, earlier this year, who was absent due to a prior engagement.
Being told to stand for the national anthem, neumatic drills set off. Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt was seated directly behind Prince Harry. Unbelievable. Anything to get himself noticed. Do yourself a favour princes, make sure you distance yourself as far as possible from Hunt. Damage limitation.
Michael Caine appeared on the screens in his trademark vocals from his films before Batman and Robin were launched from a three wheel yellow car with TIT on the side of it. TIT, which stands for Trotter’s Independant Traders is a cultural reference to a popular TV series called Only Fools and Horses, featuring two brothers in a council house aiming to hit the big time with business in the east end. Their classic fancy dress episode where  they saved a councillor from a group of muggers dressed at the caped crusader and his sidekick was the reenactment on stage. The councillor had refuse a plan made by the brothers, who then had her revoke as DelBoy Derek Trotter, dressed as Batman, told her to grant them a chance.
Music group Madness came along in an act of a street party, a British tradition, celebrated by some over the Queen’s diamond mjubilee earlier this April, followed by Blur on soundtrack with trumpets playing their hit, Parklife.
Tempo soon changed with West End Girls as the Pet Shop Boys were wheeled on in cone head getup to pleasing results.
Next up were teeny boppers, One Direction, signing what makes you beautiful. The acts mimng were met with scrutiny to all those watching and asked why they were placed on the show. OneD were formed two years ago, on TV reality singing show, The X Factor.
The bin men came next as Stomp smashed their clutter instruments leading onto Spelbound performing some bouncy routines.
Ray Davies from the Kinks then arrived in a black cab, to sing Waterloo Sunset. Fans were slightly bored and unenthused of the beginning of the show to this point, so perhaps placement should have been rearranged instead.
After showing a mock up of the Gherkin building, Emelie Sande returned to sing a full on hit. Some debated why she returned while others let it pass as she was now signing a ‘proper’ lengthy song.
Indie rock band Elbow held the stage next with some good work though most had never heard of them, as flag bearers entered the stadium. Gold sailing medallist Ben Ainslie carried the flag for Team GB.
While Elbow belted out open arms, the formation was devised as all the Olympiams formed the flag into sections around the stage to watch the concert at he front of the show. This was a valid choice, though took a while as home viewers joked about hurdling sheep.
As they were ushered into cordoned off sections by joined hands of people dressed in blue suits with a lit bulb atop their head, further adding humour to the brainwaves or not of the show in parts, had the song playlist we had all just heard of acts mentioned above replay as it did on the sound system once again. Viewers and on goers we’re highly upset with this, wondering why more acts could not have sang instead. There was no need to replay the song list hey had just heard, in their view.
White boxes reminiscent of Rubix cubes were constructed to build a platform as Kate Bush ‘s running up that hill blared on soundtrack. She was not here, sparking further fury. Should’ve booked her to sing Baboushka with Eurovision’s Russian grannies. That would have entertained.
After medals were presented for the last time to the Men’s Marathon winners,  volunteers were thanked and appreciated.
Then the party started picking up its pace. Rock band Queen’s opening lens of Bohemian Rhapsody began to ring out. Fans went wild. Then John Lennons imagine started to play. Fans respected Lennon but were baffled as to why Queen started playing only to be cut off.
Children began singing imagine as crowds began to be annoyed with the hypocrisy of sterotypical children signing when placed on the stage as a political agenda to the conservative party government. The kids outdid themselves and proudly sang and sign languaged the words for those watching in a caring manner.
Lennon’s imagie made people respond “Proud to be British” which they are, but just not too proud of the way some of it has been handled by the government in the country.
It ended with a fantastic dome jigsaw as kids crammed to gather on the stage to bury the,selves under an igloo rock that bearded the very face of John Lennon as a mark of respect, with Yoko Ono’s blessing. It was an excellent display.
Pace gathered as “Freedom” began and George Michael beated onto the stage with some funky dance moves, as well as belting out his new coming single, I’m Alive. He was happy to be there.
Kaiser Chiefs raced to the scene on backs of bikes, singing just can’t get enough in a short span before leaving quickly as pop supremo David Bowie’s Let’s Dance rang out. Advertisers and sponsors who marred the games with empty seats finally got their attendance they wanted with a mass pay off as billboards were driven into the stadium. Featuring poosters of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, were driven to the stage as Fashion, Another of Bowie’s excellent hits played. Bowie, was not there.
The boards broke down as crowd roared to see the very supermodels behind their posters, clad in gold cajoled dresses. They then proceed down a catwalk of the stage to meet in the middle with a couple of guys including model David Gandy and a few other females.
The tone quickly changed as Annie Lennox steered out on a ship at its trainload front look hellish. She wasn’t performing Wild Boys by Duran Duran with a modern twist, instead she performed Bram Stoker’s Dracula Portugal to the theme of Little Bird. Some instantly gave the Titanic comparison.
Ed Sheeren, a good guy, was on next as most were uninterested, even if understanding he is talented to some level. It didn’t fit the tone after Lennox or the brief of the show , most felt. Perhaps placement could have been better arranged.
Russell Brand, ex hubby of Katy Perry and comedian and slight actor sparked more interested dressed like Willy Wonka, you can guess what alliteration came from some viewers, as he came out in some flower power bus. Where was Scooby Doo to save us? The mystery machine would have been better.
He handed over to DJ Fat Boy Slim who was inside a massive octopus. Did it all hit the squids? 🙂
Jessie J then brought the show back. Signing Price Tag fans erupted with a singalong they enjoyed. She flew past on the back of a sporty vehicle windswept in pure class. Then we saw Tinie Tempah in the back of a car take to the stage with Written In The Stars. JJ whizzed around the stadium as Taio Cruz Dynamite proved a massive reaction to get the spirit partying.
All three stars met up in the centre of the stage to sing a fantastic Bee Gees track, You Should Be Dancing. The trio did a great job here, though some felt was a bit too long winded and lost some momentum.
The show was about to change for the best part of the evening. Turning dark, five black cabs pulled up, as a thunderous tune boomed over the sound system. This was it. Fans went wild. Ahhhhhh….

Spicey Cabs

“So tell me what you want….” The Spice Girls burst onto the scene, all five of them to electrify the spectators all over the world. The spices cans continued as the girls climbed atop their taxi’s holding guard rails as they set off to whizz around the stadium and “Spice up your life!” “Arrrribbbaaaaa!”
The crowd was filled with madness and enthusiasm galore, prompting many to seek the revival of the five piece band to make their long awaited comeback as felt they were needed in the world one again. The Spice’s stole the night, as some dodgy dancing from London Mayor Boris Johnson and Prime Minister David Cameron was witnessed. The dad and uncle dancing moves made the whole of Britain cringe with laughter for their put of touch swaying and hand clapping.
Transition from lively spice to mundane spice, one Gallagher brother then took per the procession to sing an Oasis hit, which cold not follow his predecessors as well as many wishing both bro’s could have been on stage together.
With a weather forecast looming and “Blue Sky” most were unaware of what was going on as a cannon was launched and a figure fell into the stage breaking it. Emerging from beneath the crowd changed its mood slightly as they saw Eric Idle full on to sing Always look on the bright side of life from the classic Monty Phython series. For those that didn’t know this was the presenters jobs to fill in the blanks all over the world.
Gladiators arrived on stage, as then did a Bollywood take over to express the cultural changes over time. We wonder what the silent MP Aiden Burnley had to as about this one.
Business picked up in an unexpected and excellent act took to the stage. Rock group Muse, winners of numerous best live act gongs with NME and other music industries proved their place on the line up with great live music once more. Shocking more than anything was that someone thought to book them when most assumed they wouldn’t be selected. We were glad they got recognition. They did it in glitter blazer sequins. Dazzling.
Freddie Mercury was then portrayed on a large screen. Uttering every word perfectly from his live tours, the audience were eating out of his every word in unison. It was an amazing collaboration.
Guitarist rock god Brian May dominated the stage with a powerful strumming sensation ripping the arena with sound as Roger Taylor on drums supported him. Both Queen rockers met with the returning Jessie J to perform We Will Rock You in amazing scenes which Freddie Mercury would have applauded.

In an unexplained move we were told the Greek national anthem would be up next. No one understood why. No one explained why.
A welsh choir began signing the Olympic anthem. The flags started to come down. London 2012 was beginning its departure.
Boris Johnson waved the flag, as he passed it to Jacques Rogge, who then waved and transferred it to the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes as the Brazilian anthem played. Memorise it, you’ll soon here it a lot more.
We then saw a random sweeper with a broom on the stage. Scared that another security blunder occurred from letdown company G4S, one security guard charged onto the stage to have a word with him. Telling him off, the cleaner, equipped with broom, broke into a dance. The security guard soon blame overcome with the beat and showed him how it was to be done. An umbrella lady and a vibrant samba crew joined the party with some green headed clones, stealing the headdresses of Queen Nefertiti it would seem, to partake in some Pharoa frolics and dance us into 2016, as the man from del monte came on also. It was a mass celebration to raise the part spirit as London handed over to Rio.
Chairman of seven years for the games Sebastian Coe took to a never ending speech of self portrayal to enhance his own reputation on the guise of attempting to coverup with a stance on it being for London. Coe had been the focus of many empty seats, where overpriced tickets, and sponsors who didn’t turn up to sit in those seats marred the games seven years in the making. Blamed for the reason, sponsors only received 8% of tickets. Thousands of seats were empty almost every day.
To save face Coe ended stating “Britain did it right.” In order to prove to the world who constantly knock Great Brtain, GB proved it was more than capable and able to do so. GB acknowledges that. The only problem GB has is the put of touch issues with the government towards its people. Apart from that Great Britain DID do it right.
Jacque Rogge told us to “never forget” and “we all deserved the rot to be called Olympians” for those who excelled to make it a “happy and glorious games” before saying “thank you London” for the hospitality to the games and all the nations and Olympians competing. The crowds were riveting to all in a mass union of respect and heartfelt passion for what they do as well as being a part of sporting greatness welcoming them to the capital.
Pop group Take That, minus Robbie Williams, were about to finish the show. Singing Rule the World the quartet supported the country and one another, as lead singer Gary Barlow had suffered heartache with the loss of his baby, Poppy, just days before. Tremendous respect came from the country as a nation stood with him as he did his duty for Queen and country.
Dancing extrodaniare Darcy Bussel flitted around the stage as a lit Phoenix burning behind jetted her in to the sound of church, occult, gothic chorus themes. Bussel joins TV dancing reality show, Strictly Come Dancing, most know in country’s by it’s spin off sister series Dancing with the stars, from which it DWTS originated.
 
Busting her moves, Bussel left, though seemingly over fans started to leave. Others wondered at what point it would end. The Wo were the final act of the evening to close the ceremony completely. Most did not know Who they were. The reason they played last was because it featured one word only, which had been the strapline for London 2012’s games. The one was talkin’ bout my “generation” as the strap line for the games was “Inspire a generation.”
Apart from placement of some acts and others omitted, with the absence of Sir Elton John, whom many thought and stated should have closed the show on a jivey end, and Bowie, Boyle and Bush uninvolved fully questioned some of the proceedings of those there.
The Spice Girls clearly dominated the event and with such short space and a track list replaying, could have allowed more time to them and add in a few extra acts. These mismanagement question how out of touch a government and organisers may fully be with a younger and wider audience which Danny Boyle managed to connect fully with on the opening ceremony.
To flaunt London, as great as it truly is, to the world, by being backward with portrayal in certain areas made a slight knock on the show which need to re-encapture the youth of today’s Britain positively, rather than focusing on families with babies and political values in order to “inspire” this generation to get up off their backsides, which they spend mos of their time doing, to encourage seeking work rather than forcing them with ransoms to their benefits and proving experience and attendance which the government snubbed due to their own snobbery for special guest and Rupert Murdoch to gain political exposure favourably. Tell me, did any of them pay for their extortionate tickets the multiple events they attended? Hmmm… Moaning that the country does not put into the pot is a double standard when politicians and special guests paid nothing to sit at the events first class to take liberties, perhaps? Oh, the irony…
The nation may be inspire for a week, but the after effects, with the Prime Minister and his deputy taking a two week holiday, returning in time for the Paralympic Games, leaving the country without anyone to run it in charge, hasn’t thought how to inspire when cutting sports and availability in the country as well as forgetting about how to support the over 25-30 category of the countries residents. They are the one’s you need to focus on giving opportunities to in order to make the country and its economy grow. Then the kids will survive when people can support the prize pot to open funds for sport.

London 2012, Day 6 Results

London 2012, Day 6:

Kay-ak Kingdom,

Britannia rule the waves!

Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott win gold

Paddle power in doubles Canoe Slalom flung Great Britain into first place to gain a gold medal in the C2 kayaking collision. Baillie and Stott took the honours whilst seeing off strong competition from… Great Britain! Britain won both gold and silver in the event with David Florence and Essex native Richard Hounslow take second. Slovakian twins Pavol and Peter Hochschorner received bronze.

Team GB have started their ascension to medal ownership, with a gold in the shooting events. Twenty five year old Peter Wilson shot 188 marks earning the golden medal. Swede Hakan Dahlby was overjoyed with silver at 186 points, Russia and Kuwait participated in pistols at not so near dawn, in a shoot off to claim the bronze bonanza, both tied at 185. The youthful Brit, with pin point accuracy, was greeted by his father afterwards in a mass celebration of passion.

Judo witnessed Gemma Gibbons successfully fell competition from France, by an Ippon manoeuvre in a respected outing by both in the 78kg weighting. Gibbons advanced to the next stage, unsuccessful to Kayla Harrison of Team USA, who hadn’t received medal honours for Judo for some time until today. Both overcame strong personal obstacles to lift gold and Gibbons with silver in a tremendous tussle at London’s Excel centre.

Gemma said the supportive crowd “were phenominal” and the event allowed her to “excced own expectation” while devoting the win to her mother as inspiration. Raising awareness for the sport and twelve years in the waiting proved a mother’s pride as well as the nation’s. Boyfriend Euan Burton, who sailed out yesterday congratulated Gemma, as did all of Great Britian.

Gemma’s silver

Altering the landscape, Gibbons is definitely proof how a real young female can shape as role models for sporting events, while motivating others in the process.

Kayla crunched Gold

4 man rowing followed from yesterday’s eventful successes, in the lightweight vessel, carrying South Africa to a gold medal in a valiant sweep of the sculls.

GB ended in second adding another silver to the proud nation in an exhaustive yet thrilling portrayal of passion. Denmark held bronze as the third team to cross the line.

Boxing

Anthony Ogogo sparred with Ukraine’s number 1 Ievgen Khytrov, in the 75kg tournament at round sixteen to advance onwards.

Get on your bikes and ride!

It was all off to the Velodrome for some hypnotic swirlism on bicycles. Shaky starts began for Team GB’s Men’s sprint as one sadly stumbled to begin with, though British heart.

The relay team of Hinde, Kenny and Hoy handled the v-dome with precise speed swishing round to earn gold once more in a mass rise for Team GB’s golden pot. Great Britain own fifth place in the medals rankings currently.

Cycle supremo Sir Chris Hoy levels Sir Steve Redgrave in medal standings at six a piece, one behind Bradley Wiggins seventh earned yesterday.

It was, however terrible news for the females. Victoria Pendleton and Jess Varnish were disqualified from competition early on as problems with cross overs arose. Pendleton explained that sometimes sport can serve too “eager” at the home crowds, and not necessarily either’s fault generally. Pendleton will have individual races upcoming at London, though Varnish will have to wait till Rio in Brazil to contest.

The female Chinese team were dismayed at the final gridlock, riding to second, sparking fury as a mistake caused relegation, where Germany topped the podium with gold. South Africa took bronze. One of the Chinese team were rightly upset, however eventually took some time to re-compose her will. Complaints as to why China received medal honours but Team GB were relegated from competition were slightly confusing yet clarified briefly. View as a roughly a round robin tournament style. They lost their round of two countries battling, therefore were relegated, which meant they lost to the opposing team. In knockout stages, that means GB would not advance. China were in a position of deciding first and second. Hopefully this clarifies further.

GB’s dish of the day Mark Caven(dish) joined the Olympic announce team, where presenter Jake Humphrey earned the quote of the day, – “Super slow speed” in reference to slowing down the replay. Can anyone ever attain slow speed? Is speed not fast, as well as super? Only a thought.

Our Cav!

You spin me right round…

Stickler for rules, if you break them, whether misfortunate or not, you must abide by them. That is what makes us human, and also owners of a proud and British heart. You fall off your bike, you get back on, (proverbially.) Such is the heart of Great Britain. It was unfortunate.

Unfortunate events late last night saw an unfortunate member of the public killed by a shuttle bus carrying international journalists, as the games would not have wanted this to be as widespread as possible. Every journalist should strive to deliver the vehicle of news, just a shame he had to die to deliver it. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Daniel Harris, 28, who had received blame for not wearing a helmet.

It is easy to blame the deceased, they cannot answer. In order for a fair press, addressing issues causing it should be discussed not the individual’s unfortunate mishap. The bus driver also comes into question. So much for the G4S security measures.

Campaigning for safer bikers on streets, wear ya helmets!

The upsetting death has initiated a helmet wearing debate, which cyclist winner Bradley Wiggins urged fellow bike riders to put on a helmet for extra protection. The media misinterpreted Wiggins as asking for the helmet to become law. Wiggins is asking to raise awareness of safety.

David Cameron, who also joined royals Wills, Kate and Harry at the velodrome later on called it a “difficult situation.”

It was a good larff, wasn’t it?

London Mayor Boris Johnson, speaking with a helmet on, promoting London’s ‘Oyster’ card service, said “evidence is mixed” before cheerfully dismissing himself and riding off.

(Unofficial) Sir Boris of Johnson

Have you ever seen the roads in central London. As a pedestrian I have almost been knocked over by cyclists through no fault of my own, and some even jump red lights. (We may debate this after the Olympic’s fully.)

Dipping elsewhere…

Soni’s Swan Song

200m Women’s Breaststroke finals commenced, seeing Team USA’s Rebecca Soni enter first setting a new world record at 2.19.59 in an impressive defence of her own title. Satomi Suzuki of Japan and Iuliia Efimova of Russia secure second and third places. Not Soni’s last by a long shot.

200m Men’s Backstroke gave mass upset to Ryan Lochte as favourite, where Tyler Clary of America overtook in an un-intimidated run down the pool to lift himself a gold medal knocking off one notable competitor. Shockwaves continued as Ryosuke Irie swept past to claim the silver medal, leaving Lochte at third with Bronze. Clary also set an Olympic record in the process, at 1.53.41. We had a feeling of Clary in our mind, as we pick one non-mainstream name whilst watching, and saw something in Clary. Great job.

Almost made goggles of the day…

BBC presenter Clare Balding said it was “not about where you finish, it’s about time that you set” Thank you CB 🙂 The goggle bear was also there with Mark Foster and aussie fave Ian Thorpe, until Thorpie tried to knock him into the water! Tut Tut! 🙂

Goggled lion!

Women’s backstroke began with semi-finals as Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Franklin duked it out in the heats both for Team USA with Beisel tipping the time at 2.06.18 to Franklin’s 2.06.84.  Both proceed to the finals. Franklin’s pink goggles pleased us. It’s the goggles, trust me…

Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe came back from hardship of knee injury and pneumonia in March and May this year to prove a strong Olympian contender in her comeback.

Men’s 50m Freestyle Semis were also underway. Cullen Jones was a pick that sure enough drove home a 21.54 race, while Fratus of Brazil won the second heat.

Markus Deibler was next in line for the 200m Individual medley, as Chad Le Clos relinquished his place to concentrate on another race. Nothing wrong with realising what’s more important/where strengths lie further in.

Cool necklace, got anymore?

James Goddard qualified yesterday among keystone Michael Phelps and stalwart Lochte. Lochte proved a gentile sportsman after paragon Phelps made monumental history at the games, with a triple crown of his own, claiming his twentieth golden medal following from Athens, Beijing and now in London. Rigorous training paid off once more, at the most crucial point for the now new G20! He even had President Barack Obama (allegedly) on hold in a telephone call for congratulations. Epic feat. They had the green boots on…

Hey Michael, Barack here…

Phelps is most certainly the golden goggle guru.

The Golden Goggles!

He clocked 1.54.27. Lochte took silver as Hungary’s Cesh held Bronze.

Just as Team GB dominated the games earlier, Phelps plucked a turkey!

Women’s 100m freestyle saw Great Dane Ranomi Kromowidjojo of the Netherlands rip through the water to wrest gold from competitors at 53.00 exactly, forcing a new Olympic record in the process.

Ranomi gold

Aliaksandra Herasimenia (Belarus) and Yi Tang (China) took silver and bronze, respectively. Brit Fran Halsall fought well with high calibre’s of competition in a sturdy effort, finishing 6th.

Men’s 100m butterfly Semi-finals saw Chad Le Clos devote his time to the event, entering a 51.42 just above Tyler McGill at 51.61. Milorad Cavic had 51.66 in third returning from a back injury for Serbia. Michael Phelps set his at 50.86.

Concerts took place down Hyde Park and the like afterwards, where most residents were unaware of, once more not attending, which features the popular singer Alexandra Burke.

London 2012, Day 5

London 2012, Day 5:

Driving for success

The day began early on with a raucous display of British history where Heather Stanning and Helen Glover became the first gold medallists for Great Britian and the first females in the Rowing Pair’s category.

The country was elated for both girls bringing back the proverbial bacon to Team GB.

We wouldn’t be outdone yet, where the Men’s 8 boats saw Britain lose gold and silver swiftly, to Germany and Canada who both claimed gold and silver, leaving Britain with a still respectable bronze medal.

Germany Celebrate win, later one went into the water.

Off to the Hampton’s. Hampton Court Palace saw the Men’s individual time trial Cycling events fly around the sites of Britain, with tour de France winner, Bradley Wiggins zoom around the course bagging  the gold medal rocking his golden sideburns.

‘Sir’ Bradley Wiggins commeth, perhaps? Wiggo is now Britain’s “most decorated British Olympian” the BBC coverage expressed. Can’t you say something else? It’s already been said.

Wiggo proved exceptional for Britain as its top ranking medallist, holding 7, toppling Sir Steve Redgrave, on 6, and fellow cycler Sir Chris Hoy. Wiggins hold 4 gold medals.

Chris Froome also bagged the bronze medal in the same race for Team GB. Germany rode in second in a competent effort.

More water babies came forth, proving intense competition.

Chad Le Clos qualified in the second semi of the 200m Individual Medley with Hungary’s Laszto Cesh with 1.56.74. He filled in eighth place to qualify, causing slight speculation. Remember, you don’t have to win, just qualify. Perhaps he’s keeping his poker face close to hand.

James Goddard (GB) also joined the race coming in third in the first semi, behind powermongers Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps. Lochte’s green sneakers are his lucky charms. Also gotta love the fashion sense. Lochte added colour to the challenge, with a 1.56.13 to Phelps 1.57.49 causing more ripples to their friendly rivalry.

Olympic Record was set once more by Team USA in a remarkable 4 x 200m Freestyle relay for the Women. Italy gave a funky swivel wave in a fun filled challenge. Allison Schmitt brought it home as last in pool ‘runner’ in a romper stomper at 7.42.92. She even sparkled with her earrings on once again, way to go. Australia and France entered silver and bronze standings.

200m Breaststroke Final claimed Team GB another medal, this time in silver as Michael Jamieson entered a 2.07.43 swim in a proud moment after Daniel Gyurta charged home with 2.07.28 giving Hungary a gold medal. Tateishi of Japan entered third.

He Gyurta Gold!

Randmi Kromowidjojo set an Olympic record in the Women’s 100m freestyle semi’s.

Backstroke semi’s began, where BBC commentators mentioned Goggles. Hmm, have they been reading up here? We don’t mind Clare Balding and Foster’s having a mascot with glaring goggles. BBC could get me in if they wanted. 🙂 One loves the smell of Chlorine.

Lochte maintained first place, also the previous record holder in this event, set in 2008,  as Tyler Clary also qualified for Team USA.

What Goggles do you wear Mr.Lochte? Readers wish to know.

200m Women’s butterfly saw Liu Yang Jaio of China claim the gold and an Olympic Record at 2.04.06 at the tender age of 20. Belamonte- Garcia of Spain took silver while Hoshi of Japan claimed third.

Men’s 100m saw goggle guru James Magnussen of Australia narrowly miss out on first place by a touch of the pool. Nathan Adrian of Team USA clocked 47.52. Magus clocked 47.53. Canada came in third.

Is still our Google Guru

Taking nothing away from Adrian, who proved a player and charismatic young force in the race put his rivals on notice. Magnussen also entered an enthusiastic swim.

Gymnastics

Back to the single men’s Gym events, where many young diehards attempted to taste success. Ukraine’s Mykola Kuksenkov gave some clean and valuable flip double twists, whilst John Orozco of America sailed out early on as contender due to a stumble.

Team mate Danell Leyva put on an excellent display alongside both Japanese gymnasts.

Twinkle toes!

Great Britain’s own Kristian Thomas and Daniel Purvis held credible outings at the games, where Thomas, as previously stated from his performances on Day 2 in the team event, was the standout force. On pommel horse, Thomas’ double swivel criss cross and Gymnastic floor mat work was exceptional. It was highly clear that Thomas was marked down in the competition, making a farce of the judging committee, which games officials may wish to look into.

Perhaps their feeling that Thomas is too muscular for the event, which prefers slimmer toned atypical framed ‘models’ which should be no excuse.

It is not bias. I would mention it for anyone from any country. Look at the crowds, we cheer for every nation for sporting greatness, as done with dignity, respect and honour of the games.

Marcel Nguyen, of Germany entered graceful and delightful springs in the gymnastic arena and shocked everyone to enter second in a fluid victory.

Third fell to Danell Leyva for Team USA, while first was claimed by Kohei Uchimura for Japan, claiming excellent 15’s across the board.

Thomas entered in seventh place, which really should have been higher for his exceptional work on all apparatus involved.

Thomas, had a slight fall on the vault, yet gained a HIGHER score for falling than his other work which had no falls, was fluid work and held professional poise. How is that valid in marking process?

Further controversy filled the day.

Badminton revealed China and Korea being disqualified after abusing the game. Women’s doubles saw both teams serve the shuttlecock into the net in a clearly weak display of game fixing esq qualities. Both teams attempted to throw the game because they would go on to play easier/different opponents in future stages of the competition.

South Korea against Indonesia saw similar, though both only served four runs each before failing the points. Both these teams already qualified, so losing would gain them a better drawing in opponents so they wouldn’t play one another again.

Referee gets involved

Lord Seb Coe called the scenes he witnessed live from the arena as “depressing” and “unacceptable.”

The shame of Badminton, some asked what they had technically done wrong, as there are no concrete rules in place to stop this play occurring. The rules are flawed.

Britain’s 2012 games continued to be defined by empty seats once again. Organisers stated this would not be a problem.

Here is the solution –

The “accredited” seats, given to sponsors, media and the like, who aren’t there, should be given to others.

Previously we suggested on Day 1 Results that organisers should give the space for media and allsorts to young aspiring journalists, photographers and digital media people, including bloggers, as well as this writer.

With a government completely out of touch with the country, should help support its country in order to gain experience, (seeing as those experienced aren’t appearing) to drive forward professionalism, and increase social mobility.

Getting a skilled profession with no experience is not available. If you apply you have “no experience,” therefore no one is inclined, nor has the enthusiasm to look for work, while others are just unable to gain employment after the games end. Giving this opportunity adds experience and gets them off of benefits. Not giving this keeps them on benefits. There are no apprenticeships or internships out there. Bloggers don’t earn money. Photographers and writers barely scrape through or have to only add it to a ‘portfolio.’

Teachers, students and army troops were said to be comprising the seats. On Day 5 Mayor Boris Johnson touted college/school kids with free tickets. The handful of kids sat at the games. A minor ten or so doesn’t fill an empty stadium.

The government think that the young kids are ways forward. While there is nothing wrong with them getting the chance to see the games, after they do so they will not be fully inspired to do something, and go back to school/college to learn and aren’t making the country economically move forward.

The late twenties and early thirties are the one’s government need to secure and mould back into society and the economical structure by giving them helpful experience and re-motivating their passion. With a government telling us that this age group are the ones that have 50-60 extra working years in them, surely the answer is to provide for the young professionals of tomorrow, today?

They will continually be on the dole forever because there are no options available to them. It is that simple.

The governments stubborn approach as to who “should get them” and refusing people because they offer an outspoken stance to help the country is a backward transgression that demoralises the UK overall with no faith in the politicians running our country. That’s how they feel.

London has taken a massive hit since the games. Like a “ghost town” London 2012 was supposed to increase spending, though many feel the overpriced tickets, dining at McDonalds nearby and being on a tight budget or benefits cannot allow them to support their purse expenditure.

London in 2012

The media space is not covered by media promised to be there. Add in bloggers, writers, photographers and others to lead the charge. I’m also available, and ready to write. (I can be contacted on Twitter.)

Digital media is the media that is taking over. It’s time to recognise and move with the times. Do you really think newspapers are going to exist in fifty years’ time?

Help your country and they will provide for you, therefore re-building social mobility and economical stature. Don’t delay, start today!

World Pride: London

World Pride: London

As preparations begin for World Pride Day, celebrated in London on Saturday July 7th, formerly and still collectively known as London Pride, many speculate the event overall, as problems arise on the underlying surface.

In the run up to the event, which will see a Parade travel through Central London to celebrate liberation from oppression in the 21st century, Pride has been somewhat knocked by the handling.

Numerous do not feel proud, nor happy to be at the event, most feel has become a gathering for either all of Soho’s businesses to latch on to boost sales in bars and establishments, dejected from the event, as now being used to highlight to a worldly scale to show off rather than celebrate the country and its LGBT culture.

Some want to go but are put off, also feeling lost or non-important and shutout of the proceedings which is meant to encourage them to join in and be a t one with themselves and one another, from all walks of life in general, to meet people and be united.

For some this has not been the case. Feeling shut out or that the event has been altered to fit with a “brief” of some sort to show to the world what it offers when other world places celebrate.

Many simply don’t know anything about it, what happens and the festivals going on in the fortnight before the parade day nor the happenings after the march leading into the evening.

Pride do not update nor upload any information on what to expect, just a few names for a free concert and the map pulled from Google to show the parade event. Many don’t know whether they must stand in one space down the roads at railings or whether they must move with the parade. Others don’t know how to be a part of the parade or what to do with it.

Without any forward thinking, which has happened for years, many feel this is a big showoff event that is only for the twinks, or fit, buff toned beauties in their pants to show off, and in hindsight, gives the reputation of the LGBT community an inaccurate presentation, which continues to encourage abuse and hatred.

Some Islamic activists also plan to boycott the events around London preaching hate speech.

It is liberation that allowed you to stand there and abuse people, perhaps you should think about that?

Regardless, the biggest hit must have come when Patrick Williams, the chair of Pride London, finally resigned earlier this week.

It seems that the government and officials only jump on the band wagon, once the world does something. As diverse as London is, it chooses to stage an event once other parts of the world do so, so it can say we are doing it too. London used to be able to do its own thing and still be recognised for it.

Accusations that London Mayor, Boris Johnson and his seniors vetoed Gay Rights campaigner Peter Tatchell the opportunity to speak at the event on Saturday.

Mayor Boris, with his stereotypical pink cowboy hat

When questioned in City Hall, Jenny Jones who challenged for the role of Mayor posed the question to Johnson. Boris turned the question around to the campaigner being a member of the Green party. Most have no idea that Peter Tatchell was a member of the Green party, as never expressed by himself, as Jenny Jones mentions also.

Jones, a Green party politician, came third in the polls of seven candidates for the role of London Mayor.

Mistakes to the fiasco causing the head to resign as chair saw Smirnoff and Gaydar, plough more than £60,000 to allow the diverse event to function better, after Pride had not received enough financial support from the Conservative government. The Mayor had the opportunity to rescue the operation, which he claimed was “too late” to fund resources, which many feel is simply a blatantly lie or pass off to cover the fact they simply did not want to put money into an event for London’s LGBT community, liberation, and the most cultural capital in the world, London, currently in a state of Democracy, seemingly. The pride parade costs are claimed to be up to £100,000 or nearbouts.

Those running the proceedings are said to have used expensive contractors, from low support initially. Both City Hall and Pride bookers would not accept responsibility on both parts for causing a mass problem in running the festivities. Stakeholder, financers and advertisers were not included to help support the showcase further. The Mayor did not consult with a wider outreach of the LGBT community neither to gauge the level of detail wanting to be included to stage a solution. The GLA are believed to be demanding Pride to use certain contractors.

It is the Mayor’s role and duty to save and continue the Pride event. Many politicians have tried to cut the funding and allow the whole design to collapse in order for it to willingly fail to dissolve into nothingness. Pride is heading to its 40th anniversary, since beginning in 1972, which will see veterans lead the parade ceremony. London and its Mayoral team gagged the commission from being allowed to mention certain details to the LGBT community and press. The Pride event is seen more as a charity, than anything else. Last year Prime Minister David Cameron invited figures of the gay community who help drive the economy or support charities to a dining evening at No 10 Downing Street, by invitation only. Many felt it was to acquire what is now dubbed “the pink vote” in order to remain in politics.

What a shambles. Add some sequins!

Usually in the parade, floats are travelling though this year, they have been sensationally cut, but one item is allowed! Shopping Trolleys! Seriously! Decorate your trolley my dear, however no supermarkets have publicly advertised supplying them.

The event taking place just three weeks before the Olympic Games highlights a mass embarrassement to Westminster and the country at large.

With such a diverse, unique collective of independent people, unswayed by the mass media and capable of their own mind and decisions, while never hurting anyone in the process and just getting on with it, suffering continual abuse, while we have moved on from all forms of –ism consisting of racism, feminism, islamaphobia, terrorism and many more oppressive situations, the only thing left in the world to truly have an equal society is with the LGBT community. It is the one brushed under the carpet, but the last sole milestone to complete in stamping out abuse and differentially. If we truly live in a world that wants rid of abuse to faith, skin colour or any other form of abuse, surely this should be dealt with also? How can we allow something as big as Racism to become free to encourage Democracy, yet oppress others because it doesn’t “fit” the mainstream, or has are politicians filled with bigotry from the beginning?

Looking very shady…

Boris has barred Tatchell from speaking at LGBT events and in City Hall, which casts a serve level of discourse and distance to the LGBT community and what is really occurring in Westminster with its snobby politicians. One outcome is clear. Pride, and its community need to move forward rather than quietly trying to let it come into problems to use as an excuse to say that after 40 years, it can ‘quietly dissolve’ and disappear. The LGBT community are the most passionate, caring and supportive people in the world. They help charities and others, they support people in trouble. If you were dying on the street, they would wait with you, help nurse you and look after you instead of others who blindly look, leave or disappear and ignore. Many are individuals with their own mind who don’t follow crowds and contribute to society peacefully, supportively and democratically. If we were to loose this, to the street hatred we have now, encouraging mob culture, destruction and a lack in morals, we would all lose what London and the UK supposedly, truly stands for.

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…

London at night

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…
