WHAT fun it must be to be a policy maker in a party that is never likely to get in power...

The prize for the most irrational policy for the upcoming London Assembly elections goes to the friendly British National Party (BNP). And top of their hitlist? The Olympics.

After all, an event that encourages global fraternity and celebration of different cultures just doesn't float their boat, does it? Their solution is: To hand the Olympics BACK to the Greeks.

Their manifesto reads: "The Olympics are part of Greece's heritage and we therefore believe they should be held there permanently."

So I suppose, a BNP country would mean we keep playing footy and rugby but cancel the boat race and the London Marathon this year - leave

that to the founders, the Egyptians and Greeks.

Even better, if you want to celebrate Christmas this year, you best get yourself on a plane to Bethlehem.
