Potemkin Bollocks for the IOC

Members of the public gathered at Stonehenge to demonstrate that the whole country is in favour of hosting the Olympics...

Yes, Glorious Comrades a spontaneous outpouring of love and support from the Public (who just happen to have a huge professionally produced banner!)
How like in Dec 1939 when the order was sent out "COMRADES WILL REPORT IN THE RED SQUARE TOMORROW AT NINE O'CLOCK FOR A GREAT SPONTANEOUS DEMONSTRATION".

And this is from The Telegraph - who should have a sense of reality and they call it professional reporting.
A Pound to a Penny the "happy smiling" members of the public were bussed in by their employers - Local Government, or other tax-payer funded organisations. They seem to be following the example, of for instance, the front page of the newspaper Labor[Trud], Dec. 30, 1936. "The whole country exalts, laughs, and gleams with merriment/because children live joyfully/the country is marvellous for them/and each hour, whether study or leisure/has become unusually joyful/because, for us children/our great Stalin is our best friend."

Unless there's been a seismic shift over night pushing Somerset towards Wales, Dorset out into the channel and causing a new chain of mountains along the Devon and Wiltshire borders, who, apart from local government wankers, believes that Stonehenge is in the Southwest anyway?

The southwest doesn't begin in Chertsey?

It shows the great strides the Comrades have been able to take under the Dear Leader. I think it's wonderful how despite years of repression (in the past) the Dear Leader has managed to motivate people to forget their past suffering and unite in pursuing a gaol for the good of the Dear Leader and the state which of course is good for all the Comrades.

Congratulations to our Dear Leader for another step on the road to freedom.

"pursuing a gaol for the good of the Dear Leader " I think that was typo for "Goal" but it is very appropriate! Thanks Anon.

I'm beginning to wonder if the replacement name for the UK, Blairistan, isn't more accurate than just amusing...

Thanks Tim, yes a typo, but an improvement.
