Yet another reason for wishing to be rid of the Olympics

From Hansard:

Sandra Gidley: To ask the Minister for the Olympics pursuant to the Answer of 22 April 2008, Official Report, column 1889W, on the Olympic Games 2012, what provision will be made to reduce any potential spread of sexually transmitted infections".

Dawn Primarolo: I have been asked to reply.

The national health service in London is currently working with both the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and the Olympic Delivery Authority to assess the sexual health needs up to, during and after the games. Lessons learned from previous games in host cities such as Sydney and Athens are also being considered as part of the planning process.


Lucky old Gidders in Romsey and Dim Prawn in Brizzle will be far away from the Typhoid Marys and Martins that are Ruritanian pentathletes and Absurdistani synchronised swimmers, but pity east London.....

To be honest, there's more risk to the athletes catching something from some of the promiscuous sluts that inhabit London.

Could be - in which case perhaps East London's 'finest' will do their best and give an entire generation of athletes etc social diseases thus rendering the 2012 and 2016 Olympics a wash out.

8:54 - Sounds like a plan.

My prediction is, Beijing will be the last Olympics. If it staggers on as long as London, then London will be the last and there will be a fin de siècle air about it.

First, there are no records left to be broken, no matter how many steroids are swallowed. In China, someone may manage to shave 1/100th of a second off some record. Maybe.

There will be nothing left to beat by the time London comes creaking into view. (That, incidentally, is why the Olympics cartel has introduced synchronised swimming, which is not objectively judgeable. I believe ice-dancing is also on the menu. Anything to keep that cash cow alive. How about hopscotch? How about sychronised hopscotch?)

Anyway, do we really want to host a closing night for the Olympics? Let someone else have them if they're that stupid. Beijing should be the last. It's a revolting show, anyway. And the Olympics Committee could be dismantled, retire their gold polyester blazers and start paying for their own travel and accommodation.
