Britain, Britain, Britain
11 August 2012 | by (Surrey) – See all my reviews

Wonderful choreography, music, and theme tell the story of Britain from its green roots to dark industrial might. A recognition of the country's emotional, cultural, and physical wealth.

Engaging and enthralling people of every nation with intelligence, whit, and charm; a moment of self-deprecation and self-praise, properly delivered with an all-rounded English-ness.

Music from every corner of every type, culturally relevant the ceremony throws out a message of turmoil, of arrogance (perhaps), and of success.

The Baby Boomers, the elderly, the young are enthralled and moved; they get the light, the sound, the message:

"We've done it; we did it brilliantly; I'm bloody proud to be a Brit. (And all those moaning buggers can get back where they belong: in their Early Graves)."
