After our discussion, we think the men in blue might be a bit violent but they were responsible to protect the torch. On the other hand, we guess the british doesn’t like the men in blue because from peter tatchell dialogue, he said the men in blue directed the police what to do and took an active to protect the torch, and thus they don’t like the men in blue. At last, we think the men in orange are monks who struggled for the independence for tibet from china.

I think the men in blue have the responsibility to protect the olympic flame.
The british do not like them because the men in blue stop them to come next to the torch,also the are rude.
Maybe they have found a wrong job because they might got hurt during protecting the olympic torch.
The ‘Men in Orange’are the people who want to get indepandence from the china.They destroy streets and hit people nearby,the chinese police stop them in a peace way but the others in other country just thought that the chinese police use a rude way to catch the people who wanted to get indepandence from china.

The men in orange are the Tibetan, they want Tibet to be independently.They destroyed the sending of the olympic torch.Too BAD!!

Comment by Angel

They are chinese guardians of Olympic torch.
Here:
From The Times
April 9, 2008
The guards protecting the Olympic flame had paramilitary training and were chosen by Beijing for their toughness and fitness
Jane Macartney in Beijing and Richard Ford

I think the British do not like them because they attack the British guard.They think ‘Men in Blue’ are violence.

Comment by secret

I don’t think the “men in blue” are the one who the british expected to protect the olypic torch since the video said that ” but not these boys in blue” at around 0:34..Yet i do think they are the one who helped to protect the torch in an “out of expectation way.

I don’t think the british like them coz if they like them, why should they always mentioned ” Why they had the power to direct the police?” ” who are they?” However, i think they did show their “THANKS” in another way.

In fact, i think i like them althogh their way to protect the olympic torch is quite violent and rude ( a bit crazy = =”), they did helped sometimes.

Comment by Connie

I think they are the olympic touch
protecter, they need to protect the
olympic flame.
I don’t think British like the
‘Men in Blue’, because the
‘Men in Blue’ was the protecter and they
want to destruction the Ceremonial fire transmission work.
