Muck, Brass, Chinese Olympics .

This weekend the International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge had the following to say when asked about a possible boycott of the Chinese based Olympics :-
"We believe that the boycott doesn't solve anything. On the contrary. It is penalizing innocent athletes and it is stopping the organization from something that definitely is worthwhile organizing."

Excuse me whilst I laugh , cry or choke . What I wonder does Mr Rogge have to say about innocent Tibetans , displaced , abused and rendered stateless. Are they not penalized ?
But we aren't talking morality here are we Mr Rogge ? With the Olympics we are talking mega money ( referred to in the north of England as brass ) These northern parts are renowned for being direct . Indeed they say, " Where there's muck there's brass ".
muck is dirt , corruption etc . Oh yes Mr Rogge the Olympics has a lot of this doesn't it ? ..
Doping ,doping , the same each time . Why ? these innocent athletes can win contracts worth a fortune and big business gets to produce even more expensive sports gear made in slave labour sweat shops .. Guess where ... why China ...
With so much money up for grabs small wonder Mr Rogge believes that it is definitely worth organizing .
