      lol - They haven't even officially opened the games yet and there is a list of other gaffs too.

      • Romney's original comments yesterday claimed that they weren't ready
      • Lord's cricket ground turned away spectators trying to get in to watch archery amid confusion over ticketing
      • Itís embarrassing enough for Olympics organisers that The Whoís famed former drummer Keith Moon didn't accept their invitation to play at the Games. Even worse is that the regrets had to come from the bandís manager. (Because, you know, Moon has been dead for 34 years.)
      • Advocates for victims of a fatal 1984 gas leak in India have criticised London 2012 officials for accepting Dow Chemicals as a major sponsor
      • Getting the place of birth wrong for members of the GB Men's football team

      I thought that the opening ceremony was very good last night.

      I wonder what is going to happen if Team GB does not win as many medals as in China. The pundits are on about what a great lift it will be to the country when we get a big medal count, they don't mention what will happen if the team is a failure. Will we all be down in the dumps?

      I am old enough to remember when the only Olympic gold we won was by a horse called Foxhunter, which became Britain's favourite animal. I don't remember the suicide rate jumping up. These were the days when the Olympics were truly amateur and winning a gold medal was only for the honour, not to turn the holder into a potential millionaire.

      I also thought the opening was good, but I think it would have been lost on the rest of the world. I don't really think they would understand what it was all about.

      I thought it was brilliant, but I totally agree, no one apart from the UK would get what it was about.

      It makes you wonder what they will have lined up for the closing ceremony.

      From the 2008 Olympics:

      China: 51 Gold, 21 Silver, 28 Bronze
      GB: 19 Gold, 13 Silver, 15 Bronze

      Bottom line, we have no chance of getting as many as China, USA or Russia. For me getting just one more medal than 2008 means a successful but would be disappointed if it was a bit more than that.
