the olympic torch in London - its just embarrassing!

The Olympic Torch going through London today is hilarious! I am so glad people are protesting and have the right to protest! On the live news footage of its journey people keep getting arrested and pulled out of the way and there is banners and attempted torch snatches and crowds shouting. Its brilliant! I love a good protest.

Just saw the prime minister greet it in the protected and closed off Downing Street and you could still hear crowds shouting "shame on you" 

If I had better health I would be there to protest too. The olympic association made a decision which was controversial and now have to live with that decision. I cant even feel sympathy for the people running with the flame, they choose to accept that role!
