The British people had a dramatic change of heart last night and suddenly got behind the Olympic Games being hosted in the East of London.
The incredible u-turn came after American Presidential candidate Mitt Romney questioned whether Britain was ready for the Games, after well publicised problems with lack of trained security staff, missiles being hosted on local building, traffic havoc because of 'Olympic traffic lanes', public transport employees striking for more money, and LA Galaxy play-maker David Beckham not being picked for the Team GB football squad.
Romney was in the UK to to meet British Prime Minister David Cameroon, but the atmosphere was decidedly frosty after his comments.
Night-Mayor of London Boring Johnson told gathered press "How dare that yankee doodle dandy insult our city and our preparations - we're ready by jimini. The man talks utter piffle! What does he know about the Olympics anyway?"
Johnson declined to give any further comment when press told him that Romnney was a key figure in the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah.
When asked for a quote, a London cab-driver on the Whitechapel Road replied "Mitt who? I was looking forward to having a right old moan about the Olympics, but now a foreigner has had a dig, I'm 100% behind them - they're sure to be a rollocking success so help me God. Where to Guv? That'll be 20 quid guvnor. Sorry, I don't go south of the river"
