Man with beard spotted at Olympic show jumping
ONE of the best features of the Olympics (in our office at least) has been Camden Council leader Sarah Hayward’s genuinely, genuinely excited Twitter commentary, a full-blooded support for Team GB and a display of marvellous affection for the London Games as a whole. If you are suffering Olympics fatigue, seriously, she’s the woman to recharge the batteries for the final straight. You can see ‘totes want a GB tracksuit’ and other gems in last week’s New Journal.
But who’s this guy with the beard at the show-jumping? Catching snatches, of the coverage Sarah suggested Conservative Party’s opening ceremony grump Adrian Burley MP might be shuddering at the sight of the ‘bust of Karl Marx from Highgate Cemetery’ on one of the obstacles. She later accepted in Twitter conversation it could be Charles Dickens… Any other guesses?
Think Adrian Burley might go spare if he spots image of bust of Karl Marx from Highgate Cemetery on 1 of jumps. I love it.
