The article analyses the “proud to be British” mood that has resulted from the London Olympics, especially the success of the Team GB athletes etc.

 

Sadly, reality will kick-in after everybody goes home. People will switch back from the Olympics to austerity, recession and a weak UK Government. For sure, David Cameron and Boris John will seek to gain political capital.

 

I fear that there will be a big post-Olympics hangover, especially for David Cameron.

 

What do you think?
