Michael Bates on the Olympic Truce
February 15, 2012
The Olympic truce provides an opportunity to remember that the point of the Ancient Olympic Games was the truce that transcended the sport. In the modern era much of that Ancient ideal has been lost, but the truce remains. I am proud that the British government is taking the lead to ensure that for London 2012 the truce is restored to its true position.
