Sports and Sovereign Decline

Have you ever thought about this very curious relationship? Britain is really going to the dogs, we top most bad lists in the world for being the worst, be it knife crime or teen pregnancy. Yet during Labour's disastrous and treacherous handling of this country for the past 12 years there seems to be one thing which has improved: British sport. We are doing extremely well in most things, yesterday heavy weight champion of the world, British. Or take the Olympics we were the fourth best nation in the whole damn thing. I am not terribly into sports I must admit but I thought this a very curious coincident which could not be passed over.

You could replace Britain with any Eastern-European Warsaw Pact country and as a post it would still hold true. And look what getting rid of socialism did to their sporting records...down the pan.

Not, let it be inferred, that I think the Ashes-winning England cricket are a bunch of androgynous communist dopeheads. I think if ridding ourselves of the Left costs us a few gold medals then it's a price with paying.

Some back-of-a-beermat calculations gives me Olympic medal table overall positions since 1900 on average are 7.5th under a Tory govt against 5.9th under Labour and 2nd under the Whigs. Make of that what you may!

Right... that destroys my entire theory, Oh, well it is not as if I have not been wrong before.
