Should the Olympic Torch Relay Be Stopped?

Olympic Rumpus

After the problems with the Olympic Torch relay in Paris, where the torch was apparently put out four times for 'safety reasons', we ask:

Now that the torch has been extinguished, should the relay start all over again?

Harry Meedsden, Circus Artist

"There's no point in just any old flame getting to the Olympics: I want the real thing! Let's start again and GET IT RIGHT THIS TIME!!!"

Jerry Sprinkler, Radio Talk Show Host

"This is what I would do: Return to Athens to correctly re-light the torch, and start the relay all over again. If the French muck it all up a second time then those guys in blue that protect the torch are free to shove as many baguettes as they can find up France's collective bottoms..."

Hug Tharsden, Bodybuilder

"If I wasn't typing this on a keypad marked 'Made In China', I would announce that I will immediately stop using Chinese goods in protest at China's actions in Tibet. As it is I hereby announce that I will not be buying that Olympic mug I had my eye on that I didn't need anyway. "

Jenny Smith, Financial Ombudsman

"Let's just scrap the whole Olympics thing this year and put on some nice romantic black and white films on the television."

Rabbit Hutch, Organic Farmer

"Hmmm. Is Tibet anything to do with those men with bald heads in orange who chant and ding their cymbals in shopping malls? I find them completely annoying, they always seem to be walking in my direction. Start again, don't start again see if I care."

Harry Baldicoot, Retired retirement consultant

"The person who ran with it from Paris to San Francisco didn't seem to have much trouble... whoever organized that run should take over in my opinion."
