    Sorry I don’t usually gripe but I thought the whole thing was far too americanised!

    There were some brilliant moments ie. the Queen joining in on the Bond theme, Mr Bean and of course the cauldron, but where was the real history of our country.  The monarchy through the ages were totally missed. Richard the Lionhart, Henry VIII and his wives, Queen Victoria and King George VI should have been included somewhere and would have provided interest and learning for our children. The monarchy is our history.   They should not have been pushed into obscurity by the massive over emphasis on the achievements of civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

    I also thought Team GB’s outfits for the parade were totally over the top and again very americanised.  Why put the team in white and gold when our flag is red white and blue?  This  gives the impression that we are the golden team when in reality the americans will take most of the medals.

    The smartest team on the parade were most definitely Bermuda.
