Oh my the Chinese will be ahard act to follow. What a shambles the British effort was, veryembarrassing indeed. A double decker bus, beckham, an xfactor winner, asweaty aging rock star, dancers with umbrellas throwng newspaperseverywhere. I guess a good symbol of modern day Britain. I fear ourefforts will always be second class to China. This might show newlabour off for what they are and what they have done to our once greatcountry



Thedancing was a bit straggly in the ” London ” routine . After seeing allthe cyclists taking part,the Chinese will think “Nobody can afford carsin London ”



TheBritish “teaser” was ok, but we were disappointed to see the performerin the wheelchair was not in fact disabled but was leaping around laterin the dance.



Didanyone else this the ‘London 8 minutes’ presentation was – dare I sayit – rubbish!? Leona sang her heart out on top of a ladder, on top of abus whilst 20 contemporary dancers did their stuff way below. It wasjust so low key relative to what had gone on before it.



Butoh, our offering at the closing ceremony was embarrassing.A red bus,apop singer, an ageing rocker and an overpaid ball kicker was awful.Where was our great Island heritage portrayed in all this flummery?



Organisers – please do better for us in 2012.



And why can’t Boris button his jacket? Too fat or bad tailoring?



I’vejust watched the Olympic closing ceremony, and as I feared, Britain’scontribution was embarassing and totally pathetic – I just hope theymanage to do better in 2012. It will obviously be impossible to rivalthe spectacular pageant that Beijing provided, but I thought thedancing (if you can call that dancing) and the Leona Lewis/Jimmy Pageeffort was just pitiful. Hopefully, we can ditch all this governmentinspired ‘Cool Britannia’ garbage and present something a bit moreslick and professional.



I agree that Adrian Childs was poor: he seemed to think that he was on the One Show.  

The London Bus routine was pretty much rubbish … the music was poor and everything smacked of pop culture. Period. 

The Games themselves were superbly run. The BBC was teetering on the brink of overblown nationalism, however.

我也觉得Adrian Childs很可怜,他看上去以为自己是在个人秀。。




I’m staying in Singapore and feel embarrassed to go to work tomorrow after that dreadful showing by London 2012  



I live in Germany and, like the person from Singapore, will be ashamed to meet my friends tomorrow  



JimmyPage and David Beckham have been massive icons of British popularculture. I’m not especially a fan of either, but they perfectly suitedto the ceremony.  

Notbothered either way about Leona whatshername, but the chiefembarrassment, reducing us instantly to laughing stock of the world anddiminishing at a stroke the achievements of our athletes, was thepresence of Boris Bloody Johnson!!! This man symbolizes everythingwrong with Britain – a deeply untalented buffoon, with a thoroughlysinister interior. Get him off the stage once and for all.

Jimmy Page和贝壳都是英国流行文化的重大标志。我并不是他们的粉丝,但他们很适合这个演出。



WhenI heard about the plans for the London presentation, including the”arrangement” of the national anthem and the rehashed 70s rock music, Ithought “it can’t possibly be as bad as I’m imagining it”. Well, itwasn’t. It was a thousand, toe-curlingly hideous times worse. Againstthe dignity, seriousness and power of the Chinese displays, it was sofar beyond embarrassing, my brain has already almost forgotten it, in adesperate paroxysm of self-defence.



omg, I hope our eight minutes during the closing ceremony is not a foretaste of the tackiness to come in four years time. “  

It felt a lot longer than eight minutes….. Every cringe and every gasp of horror made it feel like a lifetime!  

If that is all we have to offer, lets hope the rest of the world has popped out down the pub when we take centre stage.  

Ourathletes deserve much better than this, they did us proud in Beijing(lets not forget the Paralympics too) and will continue to do so.





Mindyou, from the wretched logo to the vacuous miming chick to David BloodyBeckham, it was all a perfect reflection of London and England as theynow are: cheap, tatty, shallow, and above all laughing enormously attheir own jokes while the rest of the world looks on with contempt.Perfect.   

Now, 2012… where can I go to avoid it all? Please can I move to China?



Ihave been glued to the Olympics constantly and very proud of Team GBbut my god what on earth was that 8 minute section in the closingceremony.  

The chinese put on a fantastic show and we have basically a red bus and a sparkler.  

Who ever put this together should be sacked before we are embarressed anymore.  

By the way BBC should be given a gold medal for the coverage, first class.






Abeautifully organised Games all around, then Boris appears, jacketundone, looking like a drunk who gatecrashed the party, what anembarrassment  






Ihave a Grandson living and working in Beijing and I only hope he staysunder cover until the humilation dies down a little. It certainly willnever go away.   

In 8 mins we have become the laughing stock of the world.  




Ithought it was fine. Are we going to have to look forward to anotherfour years of whingeing about the Olympics? If so, I’m glad I’m livingin China.  




—- Leona Poor girls must be so nervous!

—- She sounds like a whale mating     

I didn’t think it was possibly but this both sucks and blows.    

Grow up London 2012 and stop trying to be so ‘cool’. This is embarrassing.  

—- 利昂娜!可怜的姑娘们很紧张吧!

—- 她听起来像是只正在交配的鲸鱼  


成熟点,London 2012,别那么装酷。真丢人


Funnyhow the Beijing Olympics had absolutely nothing to do with Beijing.They were all about China. But the London Olympics are apparently allabout London.   



Is anyone else finding this all a bit shabby after the chinese dancing etc   



Why don’t my buses look like that?   



TheChinese did it again the closing was amazing. First class and out ofthis world. The one negative was the London Show what in the heck wasthat. In Athens when the Chinese did there welccome to show it wasamazing and you knew you where going to get something special inBeijing. I hope that London does better than what they showed to-day.



Replicateit, we don’t have a chance it hell. For one thing we’ll be lucky tofind 1% of the volunteers from Beijing. Perhaps all the people claimingon benefits should be forced to volunteer !!!  

Smith, London



Forgetabout the image of Myra Hindley. What about the image of some guypainting graffiti on a wall? What are we trying to say here? “Come toLondon, where criminal disfigurement of public property is welcomed andcelebrated?!”  

忘掉Myra Hindley的样子吧.看看那个一群人在墙上涂鸦的画面?我们到底想表现什么?来伦敦吧,这里毁坏公共财产的犯罪行为会受到欢迎.


Dontknow what to laugh more at – the tacky 8 minutes of rubbish the UK puton in Beijing or the smug comments on here about how “At least we arefree..” Last time I looked the UK was the most watched (CCTV) nation onearth and we have a government that has used fear and hate to strip usof freedoms on a daily basis. The only difference between the UK andChina is that they wasted billions more than we can afford to- but Imsure we’ll waste as much as we can. But freedom?? Dont make me laugh!  

Terry Roberts, Shropshire



TheChinese people seem to love all things western (David Beckham includedby the looks of it) but in return all we can do is bad mouth them andshow no respect. What does that say about us.  

There’s an old saying, treat people the same as how you would like to be treated.  

Rob, London   




Oops, I forgot about the fireworks. Weren’t they wonderful!  

I was so impressed by how they managed to create the Olympic Rings in the sky – truly amazing.  

Thank you China.  

[cheesed-off], United Kingdom





Inmy time I’ve witnessed countless Royal Variety Performances and theopening ceremony of the Dome. This British fiasco was worse than any ofthem, and even at only eight minutes seemed interminable. No wonderLondon mayor Boris Johnson looked so uncomfortable beforehand. He musthave known what was coming.



Ihave two tips for you, Boris. Keep your hands out of your pockets whenattending high-profile events like this, and secondly fire whoeverresponsible for this fiasco and hire proper showbiz professionals from Las Vegas if necessary  to handle the opening and closingceremonies in 2012. Another toe-curling embarrassment like this wouldbe unendurable.



The closing ceremony was, as expected, spectacular and beautiful.



I have just finished watching the Closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. I must say that it was an incredible show from the beginning to the end. The whole event went on very smoothly. I agree with the IOC chairman that these games have opened China to the world and the world to China.




Thank you family of China. Thank you Beijing 2008.

We are all Children of the World and China have proved that to us.

All of the Olympians deserve credit for all the dedication and effort. It is the Greatest Show on Earth. With the best of the best. 2012 will be a great test for GB and as one Nation what a great challenge for us.





Well done China on a fantastic organisation of the games which was flawless and Team GB for their medal haul. Thank you China for putting the U.S into second place.




Well done, China! You have given the world a magnificent Olympics despite the efforts of the chattering classes in the Western media to portray you as some Stalinist state.



The female who hugged Yao Ming was Lauren Jackson, an Australia basketball player playing in WNBA. After Yao entered NBA, there was rumor she had a crush on Yao, but Yao turned her down. There were many gossip about them.

So, seeing them hugging at the closing ceremony really really made me laugh, because 4 years ago, at the closing ceremony of Athens Olympic, Yao and his girlfriend ‘Ye Li’ came out together and that was the first time their relationship went public


那个在闭幕式上拥抱姚明的女运动员是在WNBA打球的Lauren Jackson,当姚进入NBA打球时,他们曾经发生过一段绯闻,但是姚拒绝了她>_<看到他们在闭幕式上拥抱真是太好玩了,你知道四年前在雅典的闭幕式上,姚和他的女朋友叶莉第一次手牵手出现在公众面前


What was that red bus /umbrella garbage all about? What an embarrassment for UK. It was not so much the pathetic handover performance that upset me, but the arrogant, rude and disgraceful behavior of London’s mayor Boris Johnson when attending the handover party in Bejing. Show some respect Mr BJ ! Beijing was a gracious host and deserves some praise at the handover.  

Robert, Windsor

TMD 红色巴士和垃圾雨伞到底是虾米啊??!!真是给英国丢脸啊。从来没有比这次可怜的交接仪式更雷到我的了。而那个伦敦市长Boris Johnson 在北京闭幕式的交接仪式上无知、粗鲁和毫无尊重的表现更是丢人。给北京一点尊重吧!北京是个热情和蔼的主人,在交接仪式上值得尊重!!


Production of Global sporting superstars at the 2008 Beijing Games is correct and will remain memorable. Yet, some of us tend to place focus on matters of less importance and one wonders what is their ulterior motives. All countries with high crime rates should learn from these recently concluded games, and note that it is of high importance to develop the youths sporting potential from a tender age, so that their high energy can be burnt in the right direction and not in criminal activities.  

Hollis N Hosein, Trinidad and Tobago -WI




8 minutes of total rubbish , What the hell are we playing at , That whole bus thing and crazy people was a total sham , And as for the indian girl representing the children of England well I have seen it all now . What a mess , 2012 wont be a patch on this olympics.  

sam, london



Well done China, well presented games, Boris came across well, showed we have a good mayor, who knows what London has to do to ensure we put on a good show, advice from those of us who are still British is dump most of the things in the 8 minutes as they are not in tune with London/British values or what people know us for, increase the use of the union flag as the useless logo looks half useful in that guise! Boris has clearly been saddled with Livingston’s leftie leftovers, dump them be bold!  

[GlobalTemplar], Kingston upon Thames, United Kingdom





It has been a long time that I felt embarrassed for 8 long minutes. I really hope the organizers get there act together for the 2012 Olympics in London, because whether we like it or not the Chinese did a wonderful job from beginning to end. Whether true or false, let us hope the Red Arrows will do a fly past at the opening ceremony in London because that will be something worth watching, unless of course Boris has something up his sleeve to surprise us all.  

Rose, Bicester

很长一段时间内,我都为我们的8分钟感到丢脸,我真心希望那些组织者去为了我们的2012年伦敦奥运会,一起去那里(北京)看看,因为不管我们喜欢与否,中国人从头到尾都做得非常棒。无论正确与否,让我们希望在伦敦开幕式前the Red Arrows(英国红箭飞行表演队,在BBC开幕式的评论上就有英国人提到我们不会又上红箭吧,看来英国果然只有红箭啊-_-)能够腾飞起来,只有那样,说不定才有点看头,除非Boris又把他的手揣在兜里,来给我们所有人一个惊喜!


In the London segment in the final countdown at the end of the Bejing olypics was total rubbish. If that is the best we can do to portray ourselves, then what will the rest of the world think. As a once great country we are now behind the third world, Shame  

Thomas Smith, Newcastle upon Tyne



There is one word for the “London 2012” presentation at the Beijing Olympic closing ceremony…naff !


This includes Boris Johnson who looked as though he is in need of a decent tailor. It would help if he buttoned up his jacket. He looked like a 4th form schoolboy.

The Chinese show was magnificent. Our athletes were brilliant.  

Delewar, Colchester


这其中包括咱们的市长大人Boris Johnson ,他看起来需要一个体面的形象顾问,如果他把扣子扣上,看起来也不会那么,他看起来像一个4年级的中学生!



The closing ceremony was just fine apart from the British bit which was simply atrocious!

Why did we have some prehistoric rock guitarist and a talent show winner miming to some abysmal sound track? What has David Beckham got to do with the Olympics? Hardly portrays a young, vibrant and exciting vision of what the 2012 games might offer.

If this is an example of how good London’s Olympics is going to be, then perhaps Boris should ask the Chinese to keep the Olympic flame in Beijing.  






The Beijing to London handover shows how ill equipped we are to deal with an event of this scale.

Compared to spectacular displays by the Chinese, our offering is a pathetic embarrassment.

The 2012 Party belongs on Blue Peter and was on par with an end of term school show: Scouting for Girls destroying London’s Calling; Morrisons’ theme tune by Last Choir Standing and The Feeling playing with no feeling at all.

Is this all Britain has to offer?  

Helen, Liverpool



2012年的开幕式应该是以Blue Peter 为主吧,而闭幕式会以中学毕业晚会的形式来搞:调戏女孩子的声音毁坏伦敦的通讯;合唱团唱Morrisons的诗歌腔调;唯一的感觉就是没有感觉。



I see censorship and control by the state-owned media continues.

Where is the report on the BBC website of the celebrations in the Olympic borough of Waltham Forest being canceled because of yet another knife murder, this time yards away from where the choir was supposed to sing to the cheering happy crowds in Walthamstow, who instead were replaced by the police investigating a crime scene.

You couldn’t make it up. You really are a Ministry of Truth.    

humble scholar, London, United Kingdom


BBC上关于Waltham Forest区庆祝奥运的评论都到哪里去了?因为另外一个持刀杀人犯就被河蟹鸟??那里的合唱团这段时间都应该在庆祝Walthamstow狂欢的人群吧?那可是被警察调查出来的犯罪情景啊。




The Chinese showed their rich heritage and history in a dignified and beautiful performance.

Us? We showed just what a farce 2012 will be.

Our country’s heritage (prior to the last government!) is one to be proud of. We have customs and a richer history than many others. So why are we showing a logo from the 70’s (I’m a designer, it’s shocking!) and a display of ageing rock, one-hit wonders, chavs and only modern London?

I’m proud to be English, but in 2012? I may be moving…  

Angela, Chesterfield






Lets hope the UK can match the chinese games with same character and skill! Well its all up to Boris now and his management capabillities!! We know our athletes are capable!! Mind you he has on hell of a job to beat!!  

[newtried], maidenhead, United Kingdom



Why couldn’t the BBC TV commentators just shut up when there is music on the screen? They did the same stupid thing at the opening and once again today. The TV is there for us to WATCH and when the music is on why give commentary? Also so much about history and the meaning of this and the meaning of that and the symbolism of this and that. For Heavans sake WHY did they not just shut up and let us listen to the music, to the drums and all that was happening. This was a disastrous coverage.  

Hercules, London





606: “A beautifully organised Games all around, then Boris appears, jacket undone, looking like a drunk who gatecrashed the party, what an embarrassment.”



AND HERE’S BECKS! AND A WOMAN IN A RUNNING OUTFIT PLAYING A VIOLIN! Becks boots a ball into the crowd… just the one, and it doesn’t quite make the crowd… a couple of officials have a bit of a scrabble over it… and that’s that, London’s eight minutes are up… what to make of that?




59 thoughts on “BBC英国人对8分钟的评价

  1. 中国人都觉得整个闭幕式像坨春晚,只有8分钟好看,英国却觉得8分钟是坨屎,真是众口难调啊。

  2. 呵呵,这样的翻译明显更让人容易阅读。



  3. 太有意思啦,英国的网民也向中国的一样愤怒,不过指向完全不同,或许只有导演知道展示什么才是被外国人所能接受的.

  4. 中国的闭幕式没有一点人味,恢弘的场面用人堆起来的杂耍特技,不知道满足了谁的虚荣。更显出英国八分钟的精彩。

  5. 这样的帖子容易混淆视听!



    1. 小时侯见过:一个叫《开“锅”大典》,一个叫“‘见过’50周年庆典‘月饼’式。

  6. 这老外是我党打入英国的特殊人员?那八分钟不如搞个爱尔兰风情的表演,吹个风笛之类的。2012年,我们将派出代表团去英国,在火炬传递中,我们将统一服装,统一口号,在道路两旁、房顶上、路灯上大声宣呼:爱尔兰!FREE!”

  7. Dome就是被伦敦人诟病的O2体育馆,因为是封闭的椭球形,所以叫Dome;Dome opening ceremony是1999年女王还有一些王室成员出席的落成典礼。


    1. 闭幕式就象夏天的春晚,开幕式还是很让我喜欢的,很好看,正是这样,对闭幕式有了更高的期待~可惜了

      1. 其實不應該對閉幕式有這麽多期望,閉幕式是對這個活動的總結,起到一個給觀衆收心的作用。

  8. 伦敦八分钟真是垃圾,莫名其妙!简直像异族入侵~~~~~~~小贝也是SB一样,还以为会有什么球技表演一下呢!

  9. 只能说全世界人民都有这种可爱的神经质, 不就是个SHOW吗 好不好, 坏不坏的, 还真当个事儿了

  10. 2012年,我们将派出代表团去英国,在火炬传递中,我们将统一服装,统一口号,在道路两旁、房顶上、路灯上大声宣呼:北爱尔兰!FREE!”

  11. 英国人民太不自信了,其实挺好看;

  12. 我倒觉得开幕式很好看。闭幕式是稍微闷了点。London 8 minutes虽然很有英伦风情,但是真的一般。这点我和英国观众看法一样。而伦敦市长真是太随便了,一点尊重都没有。让人觉得他好像准备下楼到垃圾似的。



  13. 我没看闭幕式,貌似没有什么发言权。



  14. 我觉得小贝老page等等几个人拆开看都挺好的,凑一起就闹得慌,不知道看谁好了,没有什么章法节奏。



  15. Pingback: 双叶@Donews
  16. 不能说明英国人不自信吧?我在英国呆了一年,最深刻的感觉就是他们骨子里那股子牛劲。

  17. 这算是众多口水贴中,唯一不该沉掉的理性观点!

    2008-08-27 7:05 am

  18. 原本以为咱们的领导人们就已经长的“挺寒碜”的了,但没想到,英国还有“得了白化病的钟楼怪人”当市长,

    1. 到了2012年,为了满足您欣赏大场面,英国会用2012个演员,穿上2012套礼服,戴2012套礼帽,持2012根拐杖,在场地中心表演——他们时而围成一个圆,时而围成一个旋。

  19. 随便了,伦敦8分钟说不上好,也说不上不好

    1. 恩,被你喜欢的热热闹闹像庙会似的"农民庆丰收"式的集体表演吓到鸟,立刻让我感觉到了人口激增带来的压力——像您这样缺乏独立思考能力的人越来越少,却越来越多地加入到了庙会表演中去!

      1. “独立思考能力”?从你嘴里说出这些,你自己不觉得搞笑吗?你自己不觉得你应该”独立思考”一下吗?真的,我不是讽刺的意思,我觉得你真的很有必要自己思考一下。

    2. 就您这点言之无物、只会乱喷的逻辑能力和文字水平,回家休礼拜天去多好!还跟我谈心态,等您有了一定水平再来谈吧!平时不注重学习,到跟贴的时候连点亮点都没有,张大师的开闭幕式虽然不够精到,起码还有点亮,您再看您的跟贴,您的跟贴简直是自嘲!

  20. = =+~!为什么我觉得英国的8分钟很烂累……你们却觉得很好……




  21. 我们向来展示的是中国 不是中华人民共和国

  22. 這樣的帖子在中國,沒有被政府和諧掉就已經被管理員和諧掉了。外國人沒有機會看得到。

  23. o(∩_∩)o…哈哈———无言啊———–但是——开幕式啊,就看一部分就可以了——闭幕式也是—-不要太认真——-不过有些的确是精髓

  24. 我就住在英国,当时和我先生(土生土长英国华裔假洋鬼子)一起看了整个开幕式和闭幕式,他一直不停惊叹中国的仪式方方面面如何如何超重量级完美无缺、无法超越。。。看完英国8分钟,他气的一句话也说不出来。。。我只好安慰他说中国表演注重dignity,而英国表演更注重fun。。。

  25. 我们SHOW的是整个华夏民族,整个中国,而英国SHOW的只是个城市。感觉出发点都不同,再说不管他那八分钟怎么样,至少让我感觉的是他对2012的奥运不重视,再说他那个市长很豪爽。他令我想起了山大王。

  26. The translation is much more funny than the original one~哈哈~饿滴神啊~哈哈~那8分钟到底是好是坏,就看观众的期待视野如何了,各花入各眼嘛。市长的表现确实是让人不知如何表达……最后出现小贝也是预料之中的,看见小女孩拿着足球就知道了,难道英国就只有小贝全球著名?干脆让小贝一家做代言算了……我倒是希望看见DOCTOR WHO出现呢~呵呵

  27. Pingback: 286音乐影视博
  28. I usually don’t ordinarily post on many SEO blogs, still I just has to say thank you for 记事 – BBC英国人对8分钟的评价 | Déjà-vu… keep up the amazing work. Ok regrettably its time to get to school.
