||Saturday’s Daily Express included an uplifting reflection on Olympic memories by Tory peer Lord Michael Dobbs, in his Inside Politics page:
"One of my most powerful memories of the Olympics had nothing to do with sport. I spotted one volunteer who was young, Muslim, her face creased with the most welcoming smile, wearing a hijab veil made from a Union flag. The day after London was awarded the Games, on 7/7, Islamic terrorists attacked the city, killing 52 and injuring more than 700 people. They wanted to destroy our community. Her smile was glorious proof of just how badly the fanatics have failed."
