With a fortnight before the start of the Commonwealth Games, India they may have to add “blood sport” as an event. Yesterday a couple of men on a motorbike open fired on a tourist bus with a friggin sub-machinegun, injuring two. Australian officials have been warned there is an 80% chance of a terrorist attack during the games (thank god the athletes are fit and can run!). That, with the dengue fever outbreak, should make for interesting times.
Psst Oh and for those who don’t know what the hell the Commonwealth Games are, it’s like the Olympics just minus all the best countries and athletes.
