Apologies for raising an Olympic thread, but who do we think will be lighting the flame at the opening ceremony?

My own personal choice would be Her Majesty given that it's Jubilee year and all that.

Over to you folks......

Thompson and Redgrave to jointly carry the flame up the steps to the cauldron. HMQ to light the flame itself.

Lets have a hearty debate on this. Republicans welcome.

Bradley Wiggins to cycle the flame into the Stadium and Redgrave or the Queen to light it if Mocas is unavailable

+1 for Thompson

And It would be fantastic to see Ali there - one of my all time heroes who walks taller every day.

John Lydon.
I may have agreed with you a few weeks ago, until I saw his pathetic performance on Question Time.

What a tit.

As one who's already fed up with being constantly pounded by "How to watch the olympics" on every media outlet to the exclusion of almost everything else, I'm not really bothered who gets to light the flame on Ronald McDonald's celebration of corporate greed and excess.

Perhaps Andy Murray's mum would be a good choice, who when she heard that Pimms would not be allowed at Wimbledon (wrong holding company apparently) said "No Pimms? Not worth going then." :thumb:

OK - after a re-think I'll go for either Pat Butcher or Joey Essex.

Agree it ought to be Bradley Wiggins. Daley Thompson blew his chances with his so-called racist slip last week.
