London - Ecuador's corrupt justice department is said to be in raptures at the Olympic opening ceremony theme that mirrors its fraudulent and much criticised vexatious lawsuit against US super major Chevron.
Described by ceremony artistic (sic) director Danny Boyle as 'about a land that has been poisoned by industrial legacy' and the recovery of that land the bizarre toxic motif comes hot on the heels of the swastika-inspired Olympic logo.
At lunchtime today the Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire director was accused of completely losing the plot as details of his 'Isles of Wonder' show were released to the media.
"WTF has this got to do with British sporting achievements?" someone from Barking twittered in disbelief as news of the Games' curtain raiser stunned the nation.
Isles of Wonder is a quote from William Shakespeare's play The Tempest, a romantic comedy set on a remote island a very long time before the Industrial Revolution.
Devoid of any toxic oil spills, industrial pollution accidents or organised crime cartels trying to squeeze $18 billion from the USA's second largest energy company the 'poisoning' theme is blatantly spurious.
"And makes you wonder if Boyle's suddenly gone all gaga inside that hyper-inflated head of his," as one former UK Olympic gold medal winner put it to reporters, in disgust.
The ceremony commences on July 27th.
