    I am so proud of the history of my country. However, in modern tines I see a divided and fractured countnry brought to its knees by this terribly divisive Tory government. Record homeless, record inequality and a press completely biased. We need a Socialist government that puts people first. When will my fellow Brits wake up and gave the faith to deliver one. Socialism gave us a weekend off, workers rights, pensions and an NHS. We need Socialism back before these Tory liars take it all away so that just the priveleged few can get super rich whilst the poorest suffer. Make me proud once again Britain.

    I get tears in my eyes for two reasons watching this. Because how great and United the whole country felt during and after the games. But 7 years later my country is now in a divided mess with an uncertain future. I want to love my country but the mess we are in makes it painful to be proud anymore.

    Little did we realise that 7 years later, we'd be a hate filled, divided nation. The Tories have a lot to answer for. Doubt Britain will be the same again. We celebrated diversity, creativity and our wonderful humour.

    I remember watching this back in 2012 and feeling an immense sense of pride in my nation. God knows I've not felt that in a while now. But this ceremony reminds us of the UK's long and proud past, and that whatever's happening today is just a tiny blip in history.

    Incidentally, I think the key to the success of this ceremony is that they got the camera right in close for some moments. It's all very well having a massive awe-inspiring spectacle, but the viewers at home won't connect with that the way they'll connect to a close up of a kid reading under a blanket or a couple kissing for the first time.
