Yes, the Olympics are coming and everybody across the country is still jumping for joy.

Well not everyone. Cumbrian broadcaster, Labour life peer and smutty novelist Melvyn Bragg is a little worried. The big-haired thinking-woman's totty believes the government's infatuation with the Games could endanger the arts.
