Mayor for London, Boris Johnson, has gone on the attack against what he calls "Olympo-Scepticism", as the Olympic torch reaches the nations capital and host of the 2012 Olympic games.
Boris says that we need typical British jitters and pessimism so we can legitimise the sense of "joy & exhilaration" we will all feel when the games get underway. Then proclaimed, "...Now the Sun is coming out in symbolic approval of what I'm saying".
During the interview on Sky News the Mayor was also encouraging Bakers to display their pretzel Olympic rings, in response to a "brand-army" apparently going around shops and businesses in London claiming copyright on the London 2012 brand.
Boris just gets better and better.
