You say that, but have the tranny community come out in protest about the 'non-inclusive' games?
Maybe, given many of the competing nations' less-than-accomodating attitude to LGBTQXYZ folk, any potential protestors realise they'd be on a hiding to nothing.I’m surprised we haven’t seen transgender protests at these games, especially since several sports governing bodies have denied entry to them.
Maybe there have been protests, but the media has given them a stiff ignoring.
Cindy Sember representing England with a yank accent like that. WTF
Just caught a couple of mins of the mens springboard diving. Sri Lankan dude who is last on the standings, just nailed a massive belly flop. Even the commentators are laughing, but the wife is calling me a horrible cnut for joining in.
Sure it was the Cameroon team last time
Part of my sister's job at at UK university is to keep tabs on the overseas students here on student visas and report to the Home Office any that go missing. The university is responsible for them and loses funding if they stray from their lectures to, say, their uncle's taxi business. I would be surprised if the Games committee does not have similar obligations.
You think that's bad. In 2007 the UK hosted the World Scouts Jamboree, 42,000 of them from all around the world. Only about 30,000 of them went back, a good few thousand never turned up, just got into the UK and went fcuking AWOL.
I think you’re imagining things. I’m watching the men’s beach volleyball right now, and not once has either the BBC commentator or the on-site commentator called them “team England”.Can anyone explain to me why it is Scotland, Wales, Australia etc etc but Team England?
