“…the opening ceremony may have been too British for some tastes, but who cares? We paid for it.
I’ve accustomed myself to loathing so many things about this rain-soaked dime of a country – its meanness, racism, imperial shame, Eton mess of a government and mediocre royals. Boyle reminded me of a Britain with a prouder history (public health services, killer music, birthplace of the industrial revolution, etc.) and a more hopeful future – and that vision moved me to tears.”

– Stuart Jeffries, The Guardian, 4/8/12
