Guess who got a letter in the Torygraph?
Any regular reader of this blog (all two of you!) will know by now I send out quite a few letters and comments, most sent to the large national daily newspapers often fall on stony ground, but ever so often, one gets printed.
The above letter, much to my surprise, went in the Daily Telegraph LETTERS PAGE (you will have to scroll down to the Olympics letters) on Thursday 21st August. If the above is a bit too small for you to squint at, here is the full text of my masterpiece.
"Sir - In the past, it was the Communist and other dictatorial regimes which won the most gold medals at the Olympics.
Now that we are winning more gold medals than ever, does this reflect the fact we are no longer a free liberal democracy and have become a state monitored and controlled regime ourselves?
Walsall, West Midlands."
The trouble is, we all know what the Bard said about saying things in jest.
