Good Old Boy #68

5 Live were covering the 200m heats of the Olympics in the early hours this morning, and had a brilliant interview with defending champion and G.O.B. Shawn Crawford. Sonja the interviewer asked him if when he saw Usain Bolt win the 100 metres, it made him go 'uh oh'.

Crawford got extremely excited and said that he had watched the 100 metres and that it was brilliant. He then explained that it hadn't made him go 'uh oh', but that Bolt was a 'bad dude'. He repeatedly both of these points several times for emphasis.

A few minutes later, 5 Live did a speak your brane bit where listeners texted in whatever was passing through their minds. This triggered a long discussion about how bad it was that primary schools don't allow competitive sports, with both presenters pitching in eagerly to agree with this idea. It seemed to me a little bit curious to blame politically correct 'all must have prizes' school sports days for Britain's lack of success in the Olympics given that this is just about our most successful Olympics since the days when the tug of war used to be an Olympic sport.

But the thing which puzzled me more is this conundrum. I read on the internet amusingly and insightful articles about how the BBC exists to indoctrinate us with left-wing propaganda. So how is it that the wicked Marxist presenters at the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation all support having more competitive sport in our schools?

Because competitive sport helps train cadres and builds the revolutionary spirit, comrade.
