Evenin' all. First post under my new avatar (used to be Grumpy Old Man but I've.......errm......been away for a bit). Anyhoo-to business........................ Firstly, if this one has been done before, I apologise: if not - THEN BLEDDY WAKEN UP!!! I've been reliably informed by a gentleman, whom I used to put on Show Parade with alarming regularity some years ago, that HM Gubberment have decided NOT to use the Red Arrows to open the aforementioned 2012 Olympiad as it maybe deemed to be too British!!!!! What kok. Complete and utter kok, in fact. Ladies and Gentlemen, I invite you to voice your dismay at this piece of art school socialism at the following link http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/RedArrows2012/ Please treat this as your FPF and give it a demm good snotting!!!
