      I don't get this team GB anyway.  Surely it should have been team UK?  The Ulster contingent must have been well p*ssed off.

      As a Scouser - a mixture of English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish (not to mention a bit of Norwegian) team UK is fine for me.

      If they all went their separate ways I could support all the teams anyway.

      As for 2012 let's get something straight.  As they consistently say in the media - IT IS THE LONDON OLYMPICS.

      It is currently draining and will continue to drain resources from the rest of the country to the capital, as if they don't get enough already.

      So as far as I'm concerned it's nowt to do with me.  I shall just ignore it.  After all it's the LONDON Olympics and I don't come from London.

      Ken Dod did just that a lot of years ago, he went on radio and telly saying Liverpool had just got there independence from the UK.
      He said the East Lancs was closed, and so where the tunnels, and armed diddey men where holding the borders.

      The phone lines to the radio and police and TV where jammed.

      Mind you it was the 1st April.

      But so many people believed him.

      Brilliant... i do remember something......    we dont need em all....ha ha

      Sorry Oldred, I will have to disagree with you on this one, yes the Olympics are in London, but it would be no diffrent if they where in the midlands our Scotland.
      I'm just made up the UK has the Olympics, Its the people who have put a lot of hard work in, the runners, swimmers so on so on, to get up to Olympic standard, there the ones who get my support.

      I love sport, and I have never been to a Olympic games, so god willing I will be at this one in 2012.
