When Canada's Olympics were finished, their closing ceremony included some famous Canadians, actors and musical artist. Which famous UK citizens do you think should speak at the closing if they choose to do it this way? Keith Richards (just to show this freak of nature is somehow still alive)? Jeremy Clarkson (in a Peel microcar)? Richard Hammond (arriving in Oscar the Opel Kaddett)? The doctors from Embarassing Bodies (to keep the national healthcare theme)? Christopher Lee and Ian McKellan (Saruman and Gandalf)? Madonna (because we really hope you will keep her in the UK)? Vinny Jones (fine example of good sportsmanship)?

There's a rumor Liam Gallagher will perform Wonderwall because Noel wouldn't do it but I'm skeptical. Liam's a loose cannon and I'd be surprised if they'd be willing to risk him doing something offensive.

Oh please NO! The London Philharmonic, Elton John, David Gilmore and or Eric Clapton guitar solo, but not this guy. Hell, get Lenny Bruce and Motörhead out there over Oasis.

I think we should just have a concert with David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Eurithmics, The Who, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Muse, Pet Shop Boys, Chemical Brothers, Blur, Oasis etc. The best of British and possibly the best concert ever!

No idea who or what will be featured, but they'll have to go far to match, much less top, the opening ceremony!
