Hang on, where are all the normal people (non celebs) that carried the torch ? Why must MSN highlight the VERY WELL PAID celebrities ? Its the general public that should appear in this bulletin. When will MSN realise  we want down to earth real stories not over paid idiots on these pages. The soldier that received terrible dibilitating injuries should be on here as a true judgement of the heroism of normal everyday working class people.

I agree with Jim. The tourch should of been carried by people in this country that make a difference. I was so annoyed when Andre Olley, who has done charity his whole life and has helped many kids and adults turn there lifes around through boxing was turned down and it was given to a young female runner who has done nothing for society. Pathetic saying olymics is about 'the people' when it is not one bit.

What happened to the young lad in Wales who was told he would carry the torch, only to have the offer withdrawn in favour of 2 MD's of sponsoring companies?
True highlights of our corrupt society!

The carrying of the Torch was invented by Hiltler at the 1936 Games How apt that her Majesty gets her wing of puppets to use this.

Local business and residents have had their homes and Rights trampled all over!

Seb Coe is rceivinga £350,000 Salary

Cheif Exec Michael Deighton is getting £800,000

Their are another 16 Execs on the London Olympic commitee getting £150,000each.

12 Bilion Pounds of TaxPayers money being carved up to host this propaganda event.

AUSTERITY! Only when it comes to non Ruling Class people having their services and jobs slashed.

I'd hoped to see a photo of L/Bombadier Ben Parkinson who carried the torch in Doncaster. It was definitely my highlight from the torch relay.
