The 'lefty' Olympics commences...............

Olympic opening ceremony grapples with weighty issues
LONDON — A celebration of free healthcare, the trade union struggle, the battle for women's rights and a fleeting lesbian kiss: the Olympics opening ceremony Friday did not shy away from weighty social issues.
Unsurprisingly, the show devised by Oscar-winning British director Danny Boyle drew accusations from the British political right that it had strayed into "leftie" issues.
Aidan Burley, a lawmaker from Prime Minister David Cameron's ruling Conservative party, tweeted: "The most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen -- more than Beijing, the capital of a communist state! Welfare tribute next?"
He followed that with: "Thank God the athletes have arrived! Now we can move on from leftie multi-cultural crap."
Several people tweeted their support for his comments.
Alastair Campbell, former British Labour prime minister Tony Blair's communications chief, retorted on Twitter: "Brilliant that we got a socialist to do the opening ceremony."
Cameron's Downing Street office distanced itself from Burley's comments, tweeting a message from the premier reading: "The opening ceremony has been a great showcase for this country. It's more proof Britain can deliver."
Burley was removed from his job as aide to the transport minister last month after attending a Nazi-themed stag party in a French ski resort.
Ahead of the show, Boyle -- whose film "Slumdog Millionaire" won eight Oscars in 2009 -- denied he was pushing a political agenda.
"The sensibility of the show is very personal," he said.
"A group of us have created it, but we had no agenda other than... values that we feel are true.
"Not everybody will love that but people will be able to recognise as being honest and truthful really. I felt that very strongly. There is no b(expletive) in it, and there is no point-making either."
The show bringing the curtain up on the London Olympics began with sections showing idyllic rural Britain being overtaken by the Industrial Revolution, before moving on to a 10-minute sequence celebrating the state-run National Health Service (NHS).
Britain's first televised lesbian kiss -- from a 1993 episode of soap opera "Brookside" -- was shown in a fast-moving montage of flim and TV clips.
Later in the ceremony, dancers formed the shape of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament badge and other performers represented the struggle of trade union movements.

The ceremony was basically a big act to promote multiculturalism, I doubt there where many black industrialists during the industrial revolution, or many Asians living in our country before we got involved in India and Pakistan, but suddenly there were a lot, and we lived together in piece. Although the fact that they did have Isambard Kingdom Brunel in the show was indeed good, as he was a true British-man.

I think the dead White baby in the middle, symbolises the national debt on which the NHS is funded. Selling off the next generation as debt slaves, is what government is all about. So the next generation has to be represented in the ceremonies along with grim reaper.

And, all this under the cold, hateful watch of the Queen. The old criminal didn't crack even a half-smile the entire time even as her fawning brainwashed subjects sang "God save the Queen" to her. Perhaps she was late for another blood feeding. Or just seeing so many countries she doesn't own anymore may have had her in a foul mood. Will that bitch ever die?? John Lennon? Killed. Gandhi? Killed. Jesus? Killed. Queen Elizabeth? She lives on like your McDonald's meal left sitting in the fresh air for 80 years. Seriously, I have £50 for the first person who throws a shoe at the old witch!
