I loved our success - but I could have done without the Lottery adverts in the interviews, an approach that sounded like state-sponsored athletes reading lines from the state script.
The PM, who probably doesn't know an Omnium from a coxless pair will be all over this, cosying up to common people with their little medals.
It's a great distraction.
Hospitals are in chaos, but if we meet a kayaker and smile for the camera, people won't notice the wait at A and E...
Every sporting success gets hijacked for political gain - by most countries.
We've seen the dedicated athletes, the ones who didn't have their funding cut, the people who have broken themselves in pursuit of a medal, but now we have to stomach stuff like the vulgar suggestions from the Express and the Mail that we won because we are better off out of Europe, or that we have shown China who is boss??
The Ferret is right to highlight that there are several dark sides to the great sport we've seen - like the sports and athletes that were dropped, and the manner in which funding is distributed and associations run.
So it's great to see home success, especially for people like Trott, Jones, Farrar and Adams who represent the real GB of today - but you don't have to look far beyond the beaming smiles to find stuff that makes you less proud.
