i completely agree it is too british, as a chinese person living in england i believe that england is far too english, i believe that british people should live in fear because everything is now deemed as unpolitically correct as some "sensitive" people take everything out of context. As the red arrows are the national pride of the UK it is correct that they sould not be able to perform in the olympics, i will also make it my personal mission to change the union jack and ban all athletes from baring the national symbol as it is also too british in my opinion.
