Is it just me that thinks that the kit the uk team is wearing is wrong . I am sure the tech, spec. is fine but the union jack is blue, light blue and white. Our flag is red , white and blue and we are representing our country at a world event and yet our national flag is the wrong colour. Am i missing something here ?

Maybe it was cheaper to print using only 2 colours? After all, we know how strapped for cash the Olympic movement is.

Presumably they wanted something that was striking design and a shift from the endless boring red/white/blue. I've always thought it looked pretty good. I don't think anyone would be in any real doubt about what country they represent.

Its going to be Mr Scargill all over again, isn't it. Press will be so busy demonising him that come the next leadership election he'll be the only candidate any of the voters have heard of.
