Brits' Olympic Shame

The British Olympic Association seems more interested in politics these days than in sports.

Or at least in political correctness.

And that explains why the BOA is forcing British athletes competing in the upcoming Beijing games to sign a contract which prohibits them from criticizing communist China's appalling human rights record.

Any athlete who refuses to sign will not be allowed to compete.

Somebody should give the BOA a gold medal for cowardice.

I used to think this was an issue that could really unite people. Many on the left champion freedom for Tibet, and the right loathes communism. And yet the response from the Canadian government when the question of a boycott was first brought up: "Meh."
