Bring the America's Cup Home!
I am totally thrilled by today's announcement that Ben Ainslie has put together a GB team for the next America's Cup.
Of course the rules for the 35th AC have been rigged - the Defenders get two boats, everyone else has just the one.
But Blighty as the underdogs, battling against injustice - that has always been a classic story, one we can all rally behind.
So this is one campaign I can fully support.
They didn't think we could pull off the Olympics, and look at how brilliant the London 2012 games were.
Let's bring the America's Cup home!!
