There was an online Petition (which I signed), collected some 138,206 signatures:

You couldn't make this stuff up

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/RedArrows2012/?ref=redArrows2012

Government Response, 27 September 2007, while petition was still open
The e-petition asking the Prime Minister to "to Allow the Red Arrows to Fly at the 2012 Olympics" is ongoing. This is a response in advance of the closing date from the Government
This allegation is not true. The Government has not banned the Red Arrows from the London 2012 Olympic Games. The organising committee of London 2012 will decide what to include in the Opening Ceremony and other celebrations - but with almost five years to go, decisions are yet to be made on what these will look like.

Surely a no brainer

Is there no end to this bloody stupidity. When will someone grab these people, give them a good shake and restore some common sense.

Never, stupidity swells in the ranks of those who have a say in our once great country.

Well, then, which aerobatic display team WOULD be acceptable, and from which country? I'm sure that the Thunderbirds would be considered to be too American, as would the Blue Angels. How about the Snowbirds? No, they're too Canadian. Frecci Tricolori, maybe? Or are they too Italian?

Perhaps the Serbian STARS??

Knowing our politically correct lot it would have to be the

"Single Parent One Legged Ethnic Lesbian Display Team", all flying non war-like unpolluting gliders.
