I stand corrected. Apparently sport is more important than having your country, your people and your culture systematically destroyed by a superpower (and on this occassion I mean China!). Olympic athlete Steve Redgrave sums it all up in an article he's written for today's Gruaniad (5 April). He says 'I think people have realised athletes are a cheap hit, a way to get publicity for whatever cause they're trying to fight for.' Must get a bit confusing eh Steve, especially as us Crips also put Civil Rights before sport. What you going to say when we boycott the Special Olympics again?!

… And don't forget, you can comment on this, or any other Crippen cartoon in the comments section below.
