Lynne Truss on the Olympic opening ceremony

Pretty much all the papers this morning have a review of last night's Olympic opening ceremony and by and large they're very positive.We've commissioned our own review from the author Lynne Truss. Was she won over by Danny Boyle's vision of Britain? #r4today

Lynne Truss's comments about Brazil and the Olympics were as disagreeable as Mitt Romney's comments about the UK Olympics. Has the woman not seen pictures of Rio? Has she not heard about the Carnival? Does she have a clue about Brazilian music/ architecture/ art/ film? I guess she cares even less about insulting people in distant Latin America than Romney cares about insulting the UK. Shame.
