The world really loves the UK because of our positive vibes

Have your say

We really are Cool Britannia. I know we’re just going to wow the world with the best Olympics ever.

While we were away on honeymoon, I lost count of how many Europeans I spotted wearing clothes with some sort of Union Jack emblem on them.

It seems the world loves the UK at the moment and I think I know why. With all the current doom and gloom, we’re the ones sending out all the positive vibes, with a Royal wedding and Diamond Jubilee and now the world’s greatest sporting event.

And what a fantastic idea that postboxes will be painted gold in towns and cities when a local Olympian triumphs. Hope we’ll see a few in this part of the world.
