Who's a Pretty Boy Then!

The Chancellor is due to present his budget in Parliament today

Alright, I was still pretty sleepy. I didn't even know he had a budgie!

He needs to employ The Olympic Committee if he wants to raise money. 8000 people chosen to run with the torch. What an honour. Oh, if you want to keep your torch that'll be £200.00. That's 1.6 milllion quid, thank you very much. Perhaps choosing 8000 people wasn't so much a case of inclusivity to the games but inclusivity to the funding of them!


  • You can keep the torch? I never knew that. I assumed there was just the one torch (with maybe a spare kept in the back of the van, just in case) and it was passed relay fashion onto the next runner. But I suppose it's just the flame that needs to be passed on, not the actual torch.
    So, if nobody wants to shell out to buy their torch, Seb Coe is gonna have to keep 8000 of 'em up in his loft.

  • Keep the torch? For £200.00? How much for the gas to keep it alight?

  • Masher - That's normally what they do. They reckon now hat having paid for 8000 they can't afford to not recoup some of the money. Perhaps just having one or two might have solved that problem.

    Toffeeapple. - I know. And imagine having to carry a big gas canister on your back as well!
