Even with a calculator, it seems this Blog (i.e., me) can’t add up. In the previous posting about the Olympics, I mistakenly put the number of athletes sent by the EU-25 as 4198. The correct figure is in fact 6298.
This of course puts the EU-25 performance in an even worse light, producing 1.30 percent golds and 4.5 percent medals overall – a truly pathetic performance. How typical it is of the commission to crow about it, since it is quite used to crowing about its pathetic performance in other sectors – viz the Lisbon agenda.
One hopes, at least, its addition is better than this Blog’s, although we can claim to have got it right – eventually.
