Yes, a fantastic ceremony but was it a little left leaning perhaps? While there is hardly anyone in Britain who is not proud of our NHS the hospital bed sequence, was (to use the current verb) quirky! And very long! Who were we preaching too? Nearly all first world countries apart from one have a free or government supported health service. Did we invent the concept? Would anyone else in the world know what it was all about? I did love all the multicultural references by the way as that is how the country is now and that is not political IMO. I see CND got a look in as part of our history? Was that something that changed the course of our country's history? Why not bring things up to date and celebrate the City of London, the International centre for financial dealings?
