    Well done, BoJo. You might have buttoned your suit up though, eh?

    This bus ****e isn't doing anything for me, although I quite liked the inclusion of some traditional UK music etc.

    That's quite an impressive bus; the ones up here can barely get up a hill, never mind open up to produce a stage.

    I'm probably showing my detachment from pop culture here, but I have no idea who that woman is. Some "British superstar"...

    The theme of the games is the whole "down with the kids" theme, hence the logo; so I guess Leona fit that better.

    Yeah, a bit more of a global appeal I suppose.

    Plus, I don't think she's got turned her microphone on - the sound quality is awful.

    I hope it will be reasonably grand, but ultimately everything we do through the government seems to be tinged with an incredibly self-conscious desire to be seen as 'progressive' - then ending up with crap like the 2012 logo, or the Scottish Parliament building... we should keep to what we're good at.

    Someone should do something about that. :woo:
