The leadership of the Labour Party and their camp followers at the Guradian are claiming the Olympic medal bonanza was a massive triumph for multiculturalism, diversity and political correctness.
"Just look at Mo Farah, a Somali tribesman who insisted on competeing in tribal dress with his four wives following three paces behind him as he ran the 10,000 metres one writer in The Guardian comes close to writing.
And what about Jessica Ennis, an African tribeswoman who thanks to Labour's lax approach to enforcing immigration laws was able to show the decadent western women that there is more to winning Olympic medals than Christian Loboutin shoes, determination, dedication, self sacrifice and effort. Jessica could not have won had we not created a multicultural society. Well not quite, Jessica is as British as I am.
And what about the parachuting old Queen and her skydiving corgis, and who'd have thought james bond was a real person?
The lefties are squeaking out of their arses as usual, trying to politicise something that should be non political.
It is effing marvellous how lefties can delude themselves. The Olympic games was a triumph for Britishness, tolerance and the generosity of spirit that moves us to accept outsiders whatever their colour, ethnicity or religion when they accept our ways and laws and take British nationality. Those athletes 'of colour' who succeeded and who we the public have taken to our hearts are those who have assimilated to our ways while to a greater or lesser extent keeping the traditions and customs of the culture that spawned them. Every nation with a large poulation has a lot of social diversity and that can be accomodated.
If Mo Farah, a child refugee, had not by his own will become as British as you or I, if he had held himself apart from British society, would he have won double gold? I doubt it. If many of our other had not become British to the extent that they accepted Britain as their nation of birth, but instead held themselves apart as some immigrants insist on doing, those people would not have competed wearing Team UK kit would they?
It was a triumph for Britain and not bad for Boris but Dave and Ed were not even a sideshow.
