One of the least attractive features of the English countryside is the number of pointless road signs and indeed signs in general.

The single worst aspect of this fact is unfortunately as England has become, daily it would seem, a bigger and bigger ‘Nanny State’ local governments and literarily anyone who has spare cash to burn has erected a sign.

There is, as you can see from this one below, little point to the signs which usually state the obvious (or “bleeding obvious” as I heard the Vicar say).

Currently the valiant, but useless Don (Quixote) Cameron, Prime Minister of the UK has said that his government will do everything they can to stamp out useless signs and I expect there is a sign posted on a billboard somewhere saying just that!

You don t say

Usually if I see a sign that has been deliberately altered or ‘defaced,’ to be more precise, I tend not to include it in my little collection of silly signs but as it’s Olympics fortnight I thought I would make an exception for this bilingual sign.

Swim in Poo

I believe that it’s also important to mention the Olympics today because Mr Cameron the Team GB Prime Minister has said that the Olympics should have a lasting legacy! Makes ten sound like the royal family for some reason – I suppose it is always because royalists are trying to justify their existence too when this last Diamond Jubilee Bank Holiday proved that the royals are a bigger waste of money than space by costing the nation several billion for an extra day off, and still they whine to give them a royal yacht, I just don’t get it do you?

Mind you he, Davy Cameron that is, did say all that Olympic nonsense at the same time as his government has announced that they will be getting rid of a lot of school playing fields, the very place where school age athletes train.

Still as more than half of the Team GB medal winners come from schools where rich parents pay a small fortune to educate their children in what the English call “private schools” these days and so that shouldn’t affect Team GB should it.

But sadly the mainly private school educated chumps in the Cameron government weren’t content with just snatching school playing fields, so that their rich buddies who donate to the party could build houses and industrial estates that will probably remain empty because of the recession, they went a little further and will sadly cancel the two hour cigarette break for school teachers who teach games and another subject.

All of which makes the sign above rather relevant because the UK as a whole and England in particular seems to be swimming in the very stuff it mentions – politicians who needs them?

According to articles in today’s English press, Mitt Romney has questioned whether Britain is ready for Olympic Games.

Yes believe it or not the Republican party presidential nominee actually questioned our/Britain’s ability to host London 2012 Olympics and asked whether the country is genuinely willing to “celebrate” the Games.

Mitt

So with one simple thoughtless comment Uncle Mitt has done what the London Olympics Organising Committee couldn’t do, the Prime Minister of the UK – sorry I forget his name, tall inconsequential faffy type of chap… you know, what’s his name? And indeed the rest of the people involved in the London Olympics, or should that be according to Lord Coe after so many years of calling the London Olympic Games the “London Olympic Games” – the “UK Olympic Games,” I’d call Mitt ‘a bit of a Prawn” but I like Prawns so I won’t, i’ll do better than that and let my cuddly readers on both sides of the Atlantic decide what to call him!

Of course no one in the UK, most of whom are jealous of London and Londoners if they live outside of London didn’t like the Olympics!

We, that is, the people, and Cats of course of the UK, don’t actually like most things including ourselves, but when some jumped up asset stripper and presidential no-hoper comes to our country and suggests that we are a bunch of idiots who couldn’t organise a polygamist wedding in a Tabernacle or whatever it was he said it strikes home I can tell you.

Only the British allow themselves to be criticised by the err… British and no one else, I bet Mitt and his various wives, if he is a true follower of the faith, can expect to be one of the 3,500 people in the new modern London Aquadrome who won’t be able to see the top board in the diving competition because of the curved roof which obscures the view of the highest diving board.

What a shame that the UK Border Agency immigration staff were working at Heathrow Airport when they let him instead of being on strike as they promised they would be, or is that why he came early?

Still I pity poor Mitt I wouldn’t like to be in his brogues, during this trip and then when he so many more foreign policy mistakes on the next legs of what is probably his first trip outside of the US, and then gets roundly beaten by the presidential incumbent who let’s face it has disappointed too many people all too often.
