Russell Brand: 'London Olympics will be a right balls-up'

By
Russell Brand has predicted that Britain will "balls up" the 2012 Olympic Games.

The comedian made the comments on Conan O'Brien's chatshow, claiming that Brits are "too clumsy" to match previous host China.

"I think we are under a lot of pressure, because China were clearly able to demonstrate in the opening ceremony that 'we can make all these people do the exact same thing at once - don't you dare get in a war with us'," Brand said.

Asked if he thinks London will do a good job of hosting the Olympics, he continued: "No way. China did such a great job. We are too clumsy, we are too self effacing - as you know with the English the politeness masks deep sexual deviance.

"I love England, I'm from there. But something that involves organisation is going to be a right balls-up. Things will catch fire and people will be tripping over things, then it'll start raining and the Queen will do a fart."

Brand recently insisted that he is "happier than ever", despite going through a divorce from Katy Perry.
