Even the grumpiest of us (this includes me much of the time) have to acknowledge that Saturday, 4th August was a phenomenal day for British sport.
But one unfortunate side-effect is the increased intrusion of sleb culture into politics. It was bad enough when a few appearances on HIGNFY made Buffoon Boris London Mayor (one appearance on HIGNFY is worth twenty election broadcasts) but now he's being touted as successor PM in increasingly desperate Tory circles. Someone, somewhere is hoping an emotional link will be made between golden locks and gold medals.
The irony is that Boris didn't win one gold medal (can you imagine?) any more than his soon-to-be predecessor won a General Election.
