Q's roving cultural correspondent Torquil Campbell is back for a new season of ranting and raving -- and this time he's taking aim at the Olympic brand. Yes, he has a problem with Russia's "homosexual propaganda" laws and its consequences -- but the problem, he says, goes far beyond this year's games in Sochi.

"Enough with the Olympics. End this nonsense, and start a new games."

What's your reaction to Torquil's first rant of the new season? The reaction on Twitter so far is rather polarized!
