@Nermal... re "won the games"
>"Has anyone read the full responce from the govement? I tried to read it last night and it seemed empty and badly constructed."
I think your own "responce" is more badly-constructed than the government's. Maybe when you "tried to read" it you failed and should try again?
>"The Red Arrows flew over London the day we won the Games in 2005" So we won the games did we?
Uhhh yes, we did. We beat all our competitors like Paris, Madrid, New York, and Moscow, and we won them, and that's why we're having them next, in 2012. Did you really not hear? Orrrrrrr..... did you think that sentence meant something about winning *in* the games? In a year when they weren't even on?
You were so determined to find something wrong with the statement that you blinded yourself to the completely obvious non-stupid meaning of the words and only saw the stupid one. Whose fault is that?
>"They probably took to the skies several times in August."
Well duhh! That's why the sentence goes on to qualify a specific occasion in August, if you hadn't interrupted it there. You can't expect one tiny fragment of a sentence to make sense all by itself out of context.
>"ok, getting lost here."
You mean you've forgotten that whole closing ceremony of the games when the Chinese formally handed over responsibility for the games to the representatives of London? It was only a few weeks ago. If you have such a short attention span, maybe this explains why you aren't able to read and understand a short and plain sentence.
>"So they will be flying in the run up to our games."
They already did, on the day in August that they're talking about, which was both the end of the Beijing olympics and the start of the run-up to the London ones, if you're capable of remembering about five words earlier in the sentence you're attempting to comprehend.
>"I'm not Normal"
Yes. That much is obvious.
