HoneySuckleDreams Posted July 25, 2012 Share Posted July 25, 2012 I can see both sides of the argument.The Olympics as a great sporting spectacle? I love; the Olympics with the corporate snouts in the trough? I hate.This quote from the Times today sums it up for me: “The Olympics are meant to be a celebration of human endeavour. However the ’people’s games’ in London are subject to the whims of global corporations and financial institutions who seek to ’legally’ avoid tax and saturate sport with their own marketing in an attempt to sanitise their reputations, never mind limiting ticket availability and securing VIP lanes,” Kate Morris (Occupy London)I, for one, am going to be supporting the human endeavour, no matter what colours are being worn Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
