All I can say is thank you Great Britain and all who had any involvement in London 2012 in its entirety, despite the detractors, critics e.t.c. It has been an enormous success and is something the like of which I will never experience again in my lifetime.

Totally agree, even with the abysmal coverage of the Olympics here in the USA by NBC. What I did see was truly amazing and enjoyed the events.
No live coverage of the Paralympics by NBC either, total disgrace and their network executives should be ashamed, but that's an emotion they are probably not capable of, similar to politicians and their expenses comes to mind.

A huge well done for all those involved for making it a success, especially the volunteers. Thank you.

Watched the Paralympic closing with pride, particularly that brave soul who climbed the pole despite having both legs blown off in Afghanistan in service of Queen and Country.
Compare him to that useless Royal inbred, representing the rest of the inbreds at the Ceremony, who trained for all of 3 months in the Marines before running home to Mummy and the theatre.
How he has the gall to represent this Country at such events plus presenting himself at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Day, in military uniform, bedecked in medals he neither won, earned or deserved is beyond me.
Perhaps a side effect of inbreeding is developing a skin thicker than that of a rhinoceros, it is patently obvious from him and his siblings that it doesn't do much for the grey matter.

If praising a soldier who lost both legs in the service of his Country and who carried out a courageous performance at the Paralympics and criticising an inbred, who has done nothing for his country except dress up in military uniforms and bedeck himself with medals --- oh !! and I nearly forgot --- badly organise a round of "It's A Knockout s being a d*ckhead then i'm sooooooooooooooo proud of it!!!

If you cannot say something respectable I suggest that you say nothing at all, despicable skate that you are.

The brave guy that lost his legs was serving Queen and Country at the time and no doubt would be appalled at your attitude.

For those who obviously have difficulty in comprehending simple English, I will try to make my opinions clearer.
In both my previous comments I have heaped praise on the soldier who lost his legs in the service of his Country and bravely climbed the pole at the Paralympics.
Given a starring role and a grand entrance at the closing ceremony was Prince Edward, who ran away from the marines after only 3 months training, insists on dressing up in the military uniforms of services in which he has never served and wearing heaps of medals he has never earned.
Edward has done nothing worthwhile in his life except to ponce around in the theatre with a company that went bust and sponge off the taxpayer via the Royal List.
I can't see how he can hold his head up in the presence of real soldiers and heroes, but as they say "where there is no sense there is no feeling!"

Not a fan of Edward then?
Actually to an extent I agree with you about this rather useless Royal ; unfortunately your vicious verbal attack on him completely detracts from any positive comment re the bravery of the soldier climbing the pole & I suspect this
is why the other comment were made.
Much respect to all olympians, able bodied & not & well done the organisers of all events. Great show

osprey saint, this must come as a surprise but I work very hard for a living, fortunately I have never been out of work and have never taken a penny from the State.
I respect the bravery of our men and women serving in our armed forces.
I think questions should be asked of a coward who runs away from the marines after 3 months training ponces around in the theatre, has the gall to don fancy dress service uniforms and medals and insult brave service men and women by attending Remembrance Day in his fancy get up.
Oh by the way, some of my hard earned money goes in taxes towards the £140k he is paid each year for doing nothing.

3 months eh? Yep, it's not a lot, but judging by your attitude I'm guessing you wouldn't last 3 weeks. Soap and pillow sacks for you I think.

Fair enough, we have some things in common then, and it doesn't surprise me. I have to say that I don't know what really happened with regard to the Royal Marines but it is obvious to me that he was not cut out to be a Marine so there was no point continuing in that role, Marines need team workers not hangers on, who would cramp their style, and they would not tolerate failure. Edward may be anti-War anyway which is his right, he was probably bullied into joining by his traditionalist father. He didn't chose to be ranked in line for the throne and that must be a massive burden on someone trying to find a niche in this unforgiving World. Yes he will never be short of anything, but won't necessarily give him any happiness. I refuse to be judgemental on him and I am sorry if I seemed judgemental on you, but that is only because I don't like your attitude or the way you go about expressing it, but it is still your right to do so, but remember he cannot answer back.

ospreysaint-- let's agree to disagree - as an anti-Royalist,I should have thought that with all their free time and the fact that they are very well paid by us, the taxpayers, the Royals could do more to earn their corn.
They live a privileged life dating back to the feudal system which has no place in a modern meritocracy.
Much has been made of Prince Harry serving in Afghanistan but after seemingly endless periods of leave, why is he on a 4 month tour of duty, no doubt home in time for more naked billiards at Christmas, when the ordinary squaddie from the council house is on a minimum 12 months?
One rule for the privileged few another for the masses that keep them!
