Nothing Must Spoil The Fantasy.


Franklin Rosemont

Trying to keep calm and cope with hearing about the Olympics constantly interspersed with the Silver Jubilee.

We listen to BBC radio a lot and watch BBC TV but intend not to do so during the Silver Jubilee which is from 2nd to 4th June.

I find it amazing that they are celebrating that this head of state, has been there for 60 years just like any other dictator.

She has never done a days work in her life, although she is often referred to as hard-working, it must be exhausting having to endure living a life of such luxury as she does.

Neither have the rest of her family ever worked, last night there was a program about the corruption in Azerbaijan where the Eurovision Song contest is being held this year.

They talked about the fact that the president’s family had accumulated huge wealth, his two daughters own plenty of real estate as well as TV stations and other companies and even the teenage son, who is 13 owns an island in Dubai.


This doesn't sound too different to me, then the financial situation of the Royals, who by the way are not English but usurpers from Hanover.

I don't intend to watch the Olympics as far as I'm concerned it is nothing to do with the beauty of sport and just about the Olympic Committee and multinationals making more money.

Knowing that Dow Chemical is sponsoring the games is revolting, especially after what happened at Bhopal, India in 1984.

The torch relay is also pretty sick, seeing as it was Goebbels who introduced the torch relay at the 1936 games in Berlin, hosted by Adolf Hitler, no wonder they don't mention this important detail.

Nothing must spoil the fantasy of the Olympic Games, which is supposed to be a celebration of sport by amateurs and not professionals who are now the only competitors.

It was started against communalism, nationalism and to promote cooperation, far as I'm concerned it's become a big festival which is all about money and nationalism.
