Begbie, Rents, Sickboy, Spud and a couple of mascots…

Some brilliant news that should excite the whole of Blighty this fine summers day!

Begbie got nuthin on this lot...

Danny Boyle, the rather talented director of Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting (and that crap one with Leo Dicaprio on a beach), has been named artistic director of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic games.

The challenge ahead of Danny and his team? CGI assistance or not, Beijing stunned the world with their lavish opening in 2008.

Boris and Leona on a bus simply won’t cut it here and with an estimated audience of over a billion people worldwide, this will have to be a stunner start to finish. I for one can’t wait.  Just don’t let Begbie get hammered?

Iain G. Morrison is a senior marketer in the British tourism industry. And is rather looking forward to 2012. End of the world or not…
