What a fantastic day for British Sport. A Gold medal for Helen Glover and Heather Stanning in the womens pairs. A Gold medal for Bradley Wiggins in the time trial. A Silver medal for Michael Jamieson in the pool. A Bronze medal for Chris Froome in the time trial. A Bronze medal for the mens 8 crew. The football teams are progressing, as are the mens quad sculls, the mens pairs and the likes of Luke Campbell, Larry Godfrey, Andy Murray, Etc, too many to mention. Very well done today to the entire British Olympic team. Win, Lose or Draw, this is now proving to be a fantastic Great Britain team and you have all made me for one very proud to be British. Good luck to everyone who has yet to compete and you are all GB Great Britons, every one of you. I just want to know, who was the idiot that rescued Boris Johnson from the supposed Zip wire? I personally would have left him hanging there until the closing ceremony! Too many options for what you could have done to him between now and then! Congratulations to every single member of the British Olympic team of 2012, you are all true Olympians. Go Team GB.

Bradley Wiggins is joining Critical Mass Cyclist Activists on August 31st as they cycle from Waterloo in London to protest against the violation of their Human Rights in being stopped from protesting at this Olympics.

Last time Critical Mass cycled on the Opening Day of the Games they were attacked by Police resulting in 7 Hospitalisations-including a Pensioner & a Disabled person.

Well done Bradley on your Gold and much solidarity !

Whilst applauding the achievements of our Gold medal winners, let's not forget the other competitors, who have trained just as hard, for just as long(if not longer), to reach an amazing standard...TO REPRESENT THEIR COUNTRY!.

Okay, perhaps pure physical stature, has prevented them from attaining 'Gold', but they have still done their best...

Start highlighting, the 'minor' medal winners as well as the 'Gold' medallists.

Remember...they're not under-achieving badminton players. This is not a slur in the remaining badminton players, who still take pride in their sport.

Much Respect to Bradley Wiggins in using his status to highlight the erosion of Human Rights in the UK.

Don't expect the Police will be attackng him!

1433 people have been killed after their last contact coming from the Police-since 1990.

950 whilst in Police Custody.
