Even if it means huddling in a bar, probably eating pork scratchings and sipping a G&T.
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed it too, but the British tone for the London Olympics 2012 has altered somewhat. What was once tagged as a sure reason to leave the country and stay as far away as possible has now acquired a more enthusiastic and (dare I say it) patriotic feel. I know of people coming back from their travels just to be within the city whilst the games are on. Although certain areas are still being avoided by those in the know-how.
It’s possible that our attitude to the event has evolved into mere acceptance: it’s really going to happen now, so we might as well get involved in this.
We’ve also become remarkably accepting of the guaranteed underground rush. We’d actually like to get involved in the hype and atmosphere, even if it means huddling in a bar, probably eating pork scratchings and sipping a G&T.
This is, after all, a rare chance to show off some real Britishness…whatever we consider that to be these days.
We’re ready for you London Olympics – Game is ON.

WHAT EXACTLY IS BRITISHNESS? Have your say…
1) A keen interest in drinking – be it tea or beer
2) We have history – this could be because we like to argue with everyone…but at least we’ve got an interesting background
3) A challenge – we’ll give anything a go, really. Just dare us.
4) The more the merrier – we like to mix things up and the Capital embodies just that. Louder = better.
