The Olympic Games have had a positive effect on the UK. 2012 was a great year for our Olympians: 29 Gold Medals, 17 Silver, 19 Bronze gives an overall total of 65 Medals. The 30th Olympiad brought prosperity and pleasure to a downbeat nation. It was a much needed boost for the people of Britain and it really made its citizens proud to be from the British Isles. A tiny nation off the coast of Europe hosted the biggest party; it really put Britain back on the map and showed off its amazing culture. The spirit of the Olympics has been so inspiring. The scale of the Olympic Park made you realise that places can be turned around from derelict wasteland to top class sports facilities, or to any other creation depending on the dream.
So impeccably constructed were these Olympic Games that Britain is imbued today - to an extent not even Lord Coe could have envisaged - with a renewed self-belief and a confidence that, for all the daily tensions and gripes in its metropolis, that it can still choreograph a spectacle of life-affirming splendour, one that is in every sense the envy of the world. From the second that sheep and geese were brought into the Opening Ceremony as part of Danny Boyle's bucolic idyll, these have been Games framed by the iconography of Britain.

It seems everybody wants to celebrate being British; last month Ronnie Fox was at the Premiere for Frank Harpers St George’s Day Film, wearing a Union Jack T Design Jacket by RhinoGB.
