    The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London Olympics because they are deemed "too British".
    Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be "offensive" to other countries taking part in the Games. The display team have performed at more than 4000 events worldwide, but the Department of Culture, Media and Sport have deemed the display team "too militaristically British". Red Arrows pilots were said to be "outraged", as they had hoped to put on a truly world class display for the Games, something which had never been seen before. Being axed from a British-based event for being "too British" is an insult - the Arrows are a symbol of Britain ..
    The Red Arrows have been excellent ambassadors for British overseas trade, as they display their British-built Hawk aircraft all over the world.
    The Arrows performed a short fly-past in 2005 when the winning bid was announced, but their fly-past at the Games was to have been truly spectacular.
    It is to be hoped that common sense prevails.

    How utterly ridiculous. The Red Arrows would represent our nation perfectly. They have been under increasing pressure over the last few years and looked like disappearing for ever. That would be a great shame.

    I actually live close to RAF Scampton and enjoy watching the Arrows practicing on a regular basis.

    So come on folks, get petitioning and lets see them do our Country proud in 2012.

    Excuse my language, but what a load of ******* ridiculous fat hairy ********, they'll be telling us next that the St Georges will be banned for fear of upsetting someone.

    Excuse me while I look online to order a large penis suit to wear because obviously the tree hugging fuckwit who came up with that policy is a big fat spineless overly-politically correct pussy, and im gonna wear my suit & **** them good and hard!!!!

    Dunno at this rate by 2012 calling it britain and england might be too offensive. So the country formerly known as england will just be land.

    I’ll be emailing the link to my friends and colleagues. Yet another nail in the coffin of Britain, more so England and common sense.

    What is it about this country, I think the most discriminated person in GB is the able bodied white English male. Please don’t get me wrong, this is not about colour, race, ability or sex. Our so called representatives, be they local or national government seem to have a such a perverse sense of guilt and political correctness that they think it’s appropriate to bend over and take anything that comes it’s way. Of course the policy makers have nothing to do with real life and I honestly believe they have no idea whatsoever how ridicules life for the everyday person is.

    Update..............i've got my penis suit on order from the local fancy dress shop, it should be cumming soon.......boom boom!!!

    Anyway, did anyone see the Pride of Britain awards last night with John Smeaton & his terrorist bashing buddies? Love his attitude and love the coments he made on the video clip about not standing it if Glaswegians cause trouble, let alone anyone else. Spot on attitude in my view and the boy deserves more than just that award, Deputy Prime Minister perhaps? Gordon's a scot after all so why not a another for his Deputy, someone with balls though!!!

    I haven't a clue mate but you will have to pay for your own identity card anywhere between £90 and £300 according to the press but you won't be obliged to carry it.So WTF is it for.Illeagals and undesirables will still be pouring into this country unabated.

    See, there's three kinds of people: dicks, pussies, and assholes.
    Pussies think everyone can get along, and dicks just want to **** all the time without thinking it through.
    But then you got your assholes. And all the assholes want us to **** all over everything!
    So, pussies may get mad at dicks once in a while, because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also **** assholes.
    And if they didn't **** the assholes, you know what you'd get? You'd get your **** and your pussy all covered in ****!

    like all above wot a load of ********!
    if your english, be proud! am a scot and proud of it
    am sick of people who tell us it MIGHT OFFEND , these people have either came to OUR country to work or for these games because its on a whole a good country, not run by a dictator(blairs left lol) ,you have the right to say you dont like something yes , but it has to show common sence !
    the red arrows go from show to show thrilling crowds no matter wot colour/religion the are there to "wow" the crowds show people wot our brave men & woman from the armed forces can do , i only hope common sence prevails and this decision is reversed !
