The 2012 Olympics are over unfortunately, as within days the English and England are made to look like complete idiots as the Police man an armed operation costing 50,000 pounds a day to keep Julian Assange from escaping the Embassy of Ecuador in Knightsbridge.
The mind boggles so much had been done to raise the image of the UK – United Kingdom as GB athletes turned in a stellar performance to bag a staggering 29 gold medals for the UK. Then the aftermath is another security farce much worse than any G4S did when on security duties at the Olympics village and the associated sports venues.
Now the whole world is watching and laughing as the totally clueless UK Police act like total imbeciles as they crowd the Embassy of Ecuador in Knightsbridge right in the very heart of the city only yards from Harrods. What a totally ham fisted and ludicrous display of gun and muscle power from the UK Police.
Inside the Embassy of Ecuador in Knightsbridge is one unarmed defenseless man namely Wikileaks owner Julian Assange!
