What a loser! The Dalai Lama has a gun to the head of his people. Brown is under no such threat but is keen to appease the authoritarian Chinese. Well I have no such scruples, and I can confirm right now that I will not allow myself to be considered for selection for this year's Olympics. I am sorry if anybody feels let down, but we have to make a stand.
