Drips Off The Old Block
The London Olympics mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville (named after two English towns), were unveiled yesterday.
True to form, in keeping with these games, they represent nothing on earth.
The only element that could be claimed to be symbolic of Britain is the single "camera lens" eye that each creature has, representing the excessive level of surveillance that the people of Britain are subjected to by the government and other bodies.
