A helping hand from a friend (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/othersports/commonwealthgames/8020432/Commonwealth-Games-2010-Delhi-police-detain-Australian-journalist.html)


Delhi police rescinded the Commonwealth Games accreditation of a photographer who had taken pictures of children working furiously trying to clear the rubble at Games sites.

However, the journalist - Jessica Halloran from the Sydney Sunday Telegraph - who was wandering around the muddy exterior of the village after simply walking through a checkpoint, was detained, not by Games security, but by a Team England official.

Ms Halloran told The Daily Telegraph she felt "really uncomfortable" being manhandled by the Team England official, whom she claimed was cold and rude and made a point of "trying to get me in trouble". Nice to see Team England upholding our standards. Silencing the Press, manhandling awkward nosy-parkers, etc.

Why DO we suck up to India? All that aid and the business concessions... and they are fierce competitors.

A bit off topic, but does the panel think she is wearing knickers ?

Maybe Uriah Heap would have made a great politician if he wasn't fictional but at least we have Vince Cable.

It's because in 2 years time everyone'll be saying the same about Stratford

And don't forget that in 4 years time the Scots are hosts.

It's going to be hard to blame British workmen for than one.
