Kudos on getting this one through:
The rest of us can enjoy the Olympics in the right spirit. By which I mean sitting on the sofa and viciously criticising highly-trained althletes at their physical peak for narrowly failing to do something the rest of couldn't even begin to attempt, whilst eating cheese.

I don't know if this is a parody, because it's almost too classically miserable:
Who cares? The economy is a mess; we are being taken over by EU; yobs rule the streets; our troops do not have adequate kit to fight the foreign wars they have been sent to and we cannot even get our rubbish collected! But we have a few medlas, so that will solve all the problems! Rubbish! We cannot even beat the Aussies! And most of them are the British who emigrated!

Another one on the same theme:
People should be worried about the fact that we are going broke, and will soon be sucked into the EU black hole! Medals do not help our country, and they do not provide essential care for cancer patients who cannot afford life-saving drugs! They make athletes richer, but not the average person, most of who paid taxes to help these athletes on their way.

These morons can moan about the EU anywhere.
