    @genmon @cityofsound And that reminds me of the fuel protests in 2000 and how surprised by them institutions were. I might be misremembering but didn’t the BBC hope that UpMyStreet Conversations would help surface such things earlier in future?

    @andybudd @genmon To me (in retrospect) it felt like an illusion of national pride. “Oh yes! Britain is modern, tolerant, multi-cultural and fundamentally social democratic!” It enabled me to ignore the reality of the 50% (or whatever) of people for whom pride in Britain means something else.

    @genmon I'm always a bit puzzled about the 2012 ceremony being considered the point at when things changed. Do people mean, "that was the last time everything was fine," or, "that was the last time people like us were naive enough to think everything was fine"?

    @benhammersley My neighbour made a joke about people hoarding pasta this morning. He said “Not to worry. It’s just a fusilli people.” and I still can’t get over it.

    @philgyford @andybudd @genmon Totally agree that The Olympics were an illusion of national pride. It ignored the fact that it was only a portion of the country who were able to feel included, and part of the movement, while others were marginalized and ignored, and their needs were not being considered.
