    Keiran, A friend sent me the following with a Downing Street Pettition web address which gave it some credence. Please tell me it is not true
    “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.”
    Regards Mike.
