THOUGHTS ON THE OLYMPICS FROMTHE POOREST REGION IN ENGLAND

The staging of the London Olympics has been paid for by big business sponsorship.

The training of the British Olympic Team has been paid for by gambling revenues.

The unsubtle protest against big business and rampant capitalism in the opening ceremony cost £27000000.

The aim of the London Olympics is to make lots of money for big business.

The aim of the competitors is to come first.

There will be just a few winners. The vast majority of them will not be the sportsmen and sportswomen taking  part in the Games.

There will be many losers. The vast majority of them will not be the sportsmen and sportswomen taking  part in the Games.
