And the 2012 Olympics is meant to be “a showcase for British talent”. Yet out of the entire country, teeming with artists – professional, amateur, student, infant and the odd trained elephant – these nasty designs were the absolute best they could dredge up. Who designed this drek? A human? A committee? Who chose the winner? Another committee? I want them all punished.
I have to agree.
I am on record in this very blog saying that I think Wenlock and Mandeville did actually work, when they were animated and trying to get children interested in the Olympic thing, but I have changed my mind. The whole London ’Lympics is turning out to be a tawdry white elephant. With all the talent the UK has to offer, it isn’t a very good advert at all, frankly.
