Olympic Madness – Lee Thompson flys his kilt at the closing ceremony

What an honour to see Lee Thompson, the saxophonist from Madness, in his St George Cross kilt at the Olympic closing ceremony last night.  Looks like the Englishness may have been an issue though as a couple of small Union Flags had been stitched onto the front.

True. He was not allowed to show the England flag in the Olympics as it was against the rules. Did I mention how much I loved the Olympics?

(He also let his "crown jewels" fall out of the kilt which is what is hanging below him.

Lee Thompson chose a wittily subversive way to gain exposure for the cross of St George.

Ridiculous that the St George's flag was not allowed - great picture and show of Englishness!
