    I wonder how long it will be until we see an online petition to ask for online petitions to be stopped.

    And then you'll have an online petition against that one as well!

    Re: Red Arrows at the 2012 olympics

    Excuse me but...

    The only problem with this splendid story was that it was a load of old cobblers. The powers that be moved with lightning speed to quash the rumour.

    Red Arrows spokeswoman Rachel Huxford clarified: "We have had no discussions about the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics whatsoever. We are still planning our 2008 season at this stage and that is a long way off. We understand that no decision has yet been made about the ceremony. We performed when London won its Olympic bid in 2005 after we received a standard request from the Olympic organisers."

    Well, we spotted this piece of silliness at the time, but thought nothing more of it. What had escaped our notice, though, was how the might of The Sun could mobilise no less than 165,000 people to sign a petition "to Allow the Red Arrows to Fly at the 2012 Olympics".

    Again, this is a non-story.

    If one of the kids (or a member of staff) came up with a story as stupid as this we'd all laugh at them. Why is it that so many people fall for such an obviously false story and don't even bother to check?
    Ah well, we have some level of trust in the other members of the site to have not just posted nonsense on here...

    I don't know if any of you saw QI on Friday night, repeated next Friday on BBC2 at 22:00, where they took apart a few euro myths. Very instructive.
