The Olympics has been hijacked by rampant commercialism, so yes, I probably would sell, then hate myself for it, then buy a new car and have a nice holiday to soothe the pain of being a sell-out and disloyal. Once the Jubilee (Queen thing marketing opportunity) is over then expect to see it all go into high gear.
Incidentally, I did see, under a pile of bunting and Union Jacks, a 'Special Jubilee Offer, 3 for 2 on washing powder' at a well known supermarket yesterday. Is there any really special event thing that the marketing suits can't reduce to worthless by their scrum to sell us more stuff..?
