Wonder how many athletes would have defected 'gone missing' if the games were held in Sri Lanka?

How many went missing when the games were in China?

Well it's for lovers.  Though I guess Pennsylvania and Kentucky are both for brotherly love.

Probably not as many as Sir Lanka, according to TFA:
Earlier this week, it was reported that 10 members of the Sir Lankan party were missing

Duh, check the local establishments which serve English "food." This wouldn't be the first time that boiled cabbage made those previously unfamiliar with the deliciousness of English fine dining forsake all other desires in the pursuit of the sort of culinary ecstasy found nowhere else in the world.

If I'm not mistaken that's a new Commonwealth Record (but well behind the World Record).

They are immigrating to England due to deteriorating economic conditions in their native sporting homelands?


The news of Brexit must not have spread to whee they came from then. Every FARK economist knows that Brexit is the poisoned dagger that is currently deconstructing all framework and ability of the British to have or use money. Or barter for goods and services since goods and services will not survive Brexit. Brexit is being so thorough in this economic destruction and progress is so subtle that it is difficult for neophytes to spot, But it is happening and those who die now before the death throes become worse are the lucky ones.

Great Britain is certainly no place to run to now when seeking a better economic life for self or family when attempting escape from hardship. That whole island is Brextinct while still breathing innit?

Not that uncommon to be honest, you regularly see athletes absconding then claiming asylum at the big events. Happened at most of the last few Olympics as well (not so much the ones held in Russia or China...)

I'm pretty sure China hasn't hosted the Commonwealth Games.
