The theme of the opening ceremony is to be 'Isles of Wonder'
So the Morris Dancers would come on and a worldwide audience would have so many things to wonder about........
What on earth are they doing?
Who allowed them to go out dressed like that?
Why do they all look so miserable? (There may be happy Morris sides, but I've never seen one)
Who thought that eight elderly men prancing about would be entertaining?
I can see the reason for looking for something better.
