Olympic Flame

Lord Coe says that the Olympic flame and cauldron is not a tourist attraction, and defends a decision to keep it out of sight of thousands of Olympic park visitors. So what gives Lord Snobby the right to make that decision, after all it's the British public who paid for the games, and what was the tour all around Britain with the Olympic torch all about?

Makes you wonder if they've got it tuned out and just kept the pilot lit to save on gas. :wink::D :grin:

:lol::lol: I wondered if the copper was starting to melt and that's why they were keeping it hidden away.

 

They turned it all off on Sunday night by the way so the cranes could move it :evil: but it was re-lit by an elderly gent who was a torchbearer in the 1948 London olympics.

 

Not fair on the kids who had the honour of lighting it at the opening ceremony and isn't it supposed to stay lit for the DURATION of the games.

 

Anyway.. YES people should definately have been able to see it as it's a big part of the games !!!
