Russell Brand has predicted that the London 2012 Olympics will be a disaster because British people are bad at organising.
The 37-year-old comedian admitted that China did a great job of hosting four years ago, whereas the British are not so good.
"China did such a great job. We are too clumsy, we are too self-effacing as you know with the English the politeness masks deep sexual deviance," Contactmusic quoted him as telling talk show host Conan O'Brien.
"I think we are under a lot of pressure, because China were clearly able to demonstrate the opening ceremony that 'we can make all these people do the exact same thing at once - don't you dare get in a war with us.'
"I like England and I am from there. But when it involves organisation it is going to be a right balls up. Things will catch fire and people will be tripping over things, then it start raining and the Queen will do a fart," he said.
Brand also admitted that he did not celebrate Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee this month.
"It is hypocritical, isn't it? We will rise up. I say it is time for a bloody revolution. Some people are into it and it only takes one to chop off someone's head.
"People need to have things to celebrate otherwise people realise we are oppressed and unable to express ourselves freely because we are at the behest of all these corporate entities.
