A village in England named Coseley will reportedly host its own Commonwealth Games. This decision has been taken together by the villagers as they have been ignored during the Commonwealth Games. It seems that over the past, schools, and swimming baths have all been closed. The residents claim that they are “forgotten” and are planning to revolt against Commonwealth Games 2022.
It has now been revealed that they will have their games. They have named it “Coseley Commonwealth”. The games include a three-legged race, welly hanging, sports obstacle race, and end with a tug of war. Tony Sheldon, an activist told Birmingham Live “The Commonwealth baton will be circulating the borough and, as expected, it’s coming nowhere near to Coseley. Because of this, we intend to have our own Coseley Commonwealth Games.”
The residents claim that they have been ignored for Queen’s Baton Relay. They said that they are kind of “lost” and they are long forgotten. They claim that even public toilets have been closed and they are neglected for political reasons. The residents said that they are only in need when there are scraps to be thrown in Coseley. The fuming residents have planned to conduct the Coseley Commonwealth over the next few days.
