Golden Britain – Post Olympics?

So how might the Olympic Experience change the Blighty we all know and half-love?  Will we all get fitter?  And save the NHS a stack of money?  Will it now be harder to abolish or water down said NHS, thanks to Danny Boyle?  Will we finally accept that we are as multicultural as New York and start celebrating the fact, rather than worrying about it?

Will we discover a new national confidence that is not related to imperialism or the Victorian Era?  A creative confidence? An economic confidence?

Or will the double-dip recession erase this brief August glow?

We decide, I guess.  No?
