First up he questioned whether Britain was ready for the Games. OK, we do that all the time, but we don't need any help criticising ourselves, thanks. Especially from someone whose real first name is Willard.
Romney then performed the impossible. He made David Cameron look good. "Call Me Dave" was able to respond by pointing out that "it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere." That was a reference to Romney overseeing the Winter Olympics in Utah, where being in the middle of anything is a compliment.
Mitt also mentioned he met the head of Britain Secret Intelligence Service, Sir John "Shhh" Sawers. Now the thing about that organisation, Mitt, is that it's supposed to be secret, so you don't tell the world's media at the first opportunity. And don't get us started on intelligence.
That clearly impressed the judges. He may have hoped to score big by forgetting Ed Milliband's name, though we all do that, so that attempt fell flat. He came back at us last night though with a cringe-inducing claim to be British. "I’m married to a girl from Wales, and I’m a guy from Great Britain," he told the cringe-inducing Piers Morgan.
In fact, he's American, as is his wife, which explains why he's running for the presidency of that country. He is a descendant of a Preston carpenter however, and his Mrs, Ann Romney, is descended from Welsh coal-miners. Plus Downton Abbey is one of their favourite TV programmes. Oh, go on then, we'll have you.
One gold medal for Team GB!
