Notes"During the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, taking place in London, Burley denounced the content of the ceremony on the microblog Twitter as "...leftie multicultural crap. Bring back Red Arrows, Shakespeare and the Stones." He went on to suggest that it was "the most leftie opening ceremony I have ever seen - more than Beijing, the capital of a Communist state." Burley later attempted to clarify his remarks, tweeting: "Seems my tweet has been misunderstood. I was talking about the way it was handled in the show, not multiculturalism itself."" Wikipedia
