Is this where the action is going to be tonight?

Part of me hopes he simply hasn't taken the suit off since The King's Speech.

Oh, dear - misjudgement no. 1 IMO. Hits the jingoistic touch the entire opening ceremony avoided. Everyone hears that voice and no matter what he says all you hear is fighting on the beaches.

Hmmm, hopefully it'll be good, but it's described as a celebration of British music and they book the spice girls and a rapper!?!?!? May as well include wrong direction, the cheeky girls and have it hosted by simon f**king cowell!!!

I wish it was Albert Finney rather than Timothy Spall, although maybe Spall's portrayal suits the campy tone a bit more.

It's not as bad as I feared so far actually, but I fear it will go downhill. I do hope they don't think this electronic pop is all we have tho, get Jimmy Page back out there, or maybe Ozzy and a bit of Paranoid!!! \m/

I can blame you for this now. From Madness to this lot

EDIT: beaten to it by Hoodie

Never understood how banging a drum lid can be impressive, Stomp just not for me I'm afraid (though I know friends who've seen them and said its the best night ever. Just can't see it)

This keeps up and they're really going to screw up goodwill. They'll need to walk Team GB around for an hour or so to get it back

Is that who they are?! I named them and didn't even know who they were!!!

I apologise unreservedly, if teh cheeky girls come on I will accept exile!!!

There was a spoof article I can't find now saying the closing ceremony was going to show the worst of Britain to clear all the tourists out, looks like it wasn't a spook after all!!!!!

We can possibly only save this by bringing out Bowie. He must have made a fortune off payments for using We Could be Heroes. He owes us!!

This has probably already been mentioned but who is responsible for the closing ceremony? Yes I have turned off.

I'm not watching this but I've seen the line-up and its awful.

I knew it wouldn't match the opening but I was hoping for something more than a concert to be honest.
