Wrong again tug3! It is LONDON bidding to host the Olympics, not the country. All this claimed economic benefit to the rest of the country (be it England or UK or whatever) is utter nonsense. How can anywhere outside of London benefit?

And as for Lord Coe's puerile nonsense about wanting to host the best games ever. Goodness me! Does he think we're all fools? Country couldn't get the bloody Dome done on time or on budget; Scottish Parliament massively over budget and late; etc etc etc. The rest of the nation will be saddled with the tax bill to pay for LONDON'S Olympics for ever more.

And all because Tony and Cherie want a frickin' ceremony that they can lord it over. Save the cash and heartache ....... pleeeeaaaase!
