Well done Great Britain

Much as it pains me to see the vast amount of tax payers money (and I include Lottery money, the stupidity tax) wasted on a glorified school sports day, I salute the achievements of the British athletes at the Olympics, but especially the winners of 47 medals. None of them appear to have resorted to using artificial stimulants, most of them were gallant and gracious in victory and defeat (especially Adlington, Brabants and Hoy) and best of all they didn't have to sink to the depths of synchronised swimming or artistic gymnastics to win their prizes.
