What a relay! Coe's corporate cop out

Seb Prat just can't handle the idea that people can do things without the assistance of massive corporations. He recently had a go at the 'shires', why the shires heaven only knows, for criticising corporate involvement in London2012. He declared “If we didn’t have the partners’ support, we wouldn’t have the torch relay.”

Of course, it is beneath him and no doubt somewhat disturbing for him to acknowledge that there is a real relay being run by people who were disgusted to find that the torch was being moved around in buses and put to bed at night!

And they're just doing it for themselves and by themselves! Not a logo in sight.
