Me too. I wish someone could explain to me what UK (even just
England) would get out of incurring a huge amount of debt just to
bring this to London. Maybe they want to recoup some of the
millions spent on the millennium dome?

Derek.

I like the country that had no first choice, but had a second
and a third.

That is a job for Grunge, our Turkish toilet expert.

Another job might be to some non-reactive original postings, Grunge.
You are a reactive poster, and lack originality.

I think London is the perfect place for the Olympics.


Except it has few suitable stadiums, inadequate public transport and
the area chosen needs to be bombed flat before they can start.


I think it could be done, and I support the bid- because I think the
regeneration would be worth it. But, if Paris got it instead, that would
be fine with me too. Worth pointing out that one of the new Eurostar
stations in London will be very close to the site.
