London 2012: Four years later

Four years ago, we held the Olympic Games in London.

We welcomed to world to our country with open arms, and we genuinely feel like we were part of something huge. Something important. Something to make us proud about Britain's place in the world.

Now it's 2016, and look at the state of us. Hateful, selfish, insular, stupid, threatening to throw out the people we called our guests. I'm ashamed.

So, here are some of the photos I took at the time of the Games, the test events, the people and the Good Times.

Here's to the return of better days.

Quite so! I suppose it's really a small compensation that nearly half (probably more now) were entirely of the opposite persuasion.

We'll still welcome the world.

It's been 3 months.
Is it time for:
Sic Transit Gloria Mundi?
Or was that,
Sic Transit Gloria Gaynor?
Or will you survive too?
