Can you believe this?

Please forward this onto any fellow patriots that you know! Thanks:-



The world-famous Red Arrows have been banned from appearing at the 2012 London
Olympics because they are deemed "too British".

Organisers of the event say that the Arrows military background might be
"offensive" to other countries taking part in the Games. The display
team have performed at more than 4000 events worldwide, but the Department of
Culture, Media and Sport have deemed the display team "too
militaristically British". Red Arrows pilots were said to be "outraged", as they
had hoped to put on a truly world class display for the Games,
something which had never been seen before. Being axed from a British-based
event for being "too British" is an insult - the Arrows are a symbol of Britain
.

The Red Arrows have been excellent ambassadors for British overseas trade, as
they display their British-built Hawk aircraft all over the
world.

The Arrows performed a short flypast in 2005 when the winning bid was announced,
but their flypast at the Games was to have been truly
spectacular.

It is to be hoped that common sense prevails.  If you disagree with this
decision, sign the petition on the link

Be fine come the time, they'll have trained up some polish pilots by then so won't be 100% Brittish!

Hi All, just to let you know this is not a factual statement. Nothing has been decided for the 2012 games. The Arrows doing a fly by has neither been ruled in or out. This has been doing the rounds, just rubbish. Cheers Ray

But if Gordon Nrown and his cronies have anything to do with it, and it will save a few quid, then they'll be all for it...   Besides, this is a warning shot across the bow, so that they don't even think about it.
