    I love the olympics and I think although we are a naturally cynical nation, come the time there will be a real sense of unity and pride, genuinely.

    Well I must admit, I'm not in the slightest bit interested in them and feel, even with a smattering of outside london venues, that it's still very much a london based event.

    HOWEVER, you're right we're cynical with zero national pride so ok, if it does some good there then so be it.

    We NEED some national pride and identity.

    Was listening to 5 live earlier and one of our rowers was saying that the best bit of the whole olympics in Sydney for him was Kathy Freemans gold - he said the emotion was palpable - sport has the ability to transcend all the barriers of race religion and petty politics if even for a short while, and as such should be celebrated.and I utterly exclude football from that equation

    Too many things are seen in terms of their opportunity cost ' that could have been spent on x nurses or x kidney dialysis machines'. I don't want to have been part of a generation that left no legacy, no concord moments, no man on the moon moments'

    I hope that for a fortnight we smile and enjoy the spectacle and the colour the highs and the lows and we show the world that we are a great nation
