Beach Volley Ball Trooping

Trooping is neither modern nor part of the Big Society. The sand will remain in Horse Guards as a community sandpit and those shouty, marchy up and down people can go elsewhere.

And the Red Arrows won’t be allowed at the Olympics because they’re too aggressive. It must be true, a man in a pub called lsquared told me it was all part of a plot by Zanu Liabore.

Joking apart - what will happen come 'silly season'? Beating Retreat, Guard mounting from Horseguards, Major General's and Colonel's Review and the Troop? God help us. I hate Harriet Harperson.

The sand there now is only temporary. It will be moved after the practice, which is a couple of weeks in August. All will be clear from then until the Games, when the whole place will be a disaster area for months - sand, massive stands, and the GOC London kicked out of Horseguards for the duration.

How are they going to prevent every feral cat in London from shitting in it??
There's not many of them around these days - along with swans, carp, and squirrels, they form a nutritious and correct-in-a-diversity-way part of someone's diet. In fact, if I were you I'd keep moving if you ever get to london, and for God's sake don't go near the Thames, in case the Jap tourists see you and think it's the Olde English Whale Meet Again buffet :)

Am I alone in not giving a flying fook about the LONDON Olympics? I know the party line is 'the whole country will benefit' but I can't see many people outside of the Greater London Area profiting from the event.

The worst bit will be DC, in the usual fake tan and hair dye, making creepy self-serving appearances to say how wonderful it all is.

The good people of Weymouth will find themselves getting fucked-about almost as much as your average Cockyknee. So that's nice.

We have been paying for it through Council Tax for the last 6 years so we should get something back (apart from a major f*ck-about while it is on).
