I'll add my best wishes to London and you Brits here too. I wasn't really all that enthusiastic about the NYC bid, despite being American. I felt burned out after Atlanta in '96 and Salt Lake City in '02. Yes, a small part of me was pulling for NYC for sentimental reasons, but if they didn't get it, London was the next best thing.

And after Chirac's comments about British cuisine, I was really pulling for London. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Another couple weeks of watching the world's most doped up athletes going at it head to head.


Don't get me wrong, I love the Olympics, but it is sort of melancholy and grim in a way that many of the athletes you see and idolize are probably shooting up some sort of doping agent. It's just lost it's credibility in a way.

When I see a spectacular performance I don't know whether to think some athlete had the incredible edge like Jesse Owens did, or if he just doped up before the Olympics and began peaking during the games. I am not pointing any fingers, but the world on steroids is a sad place.

I really wish doping didn't exist. It's sad to say that it ruined my enjoyment of the sport of track and field a whole lot.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I'm less than enthused by this. My city bid for the Games a few years back now, and all we got was patronising lip service from the national government and outright scorn and derison from the London-centric media and a lot of people in the South-East. Contrast that to the the weight put behind this bid. Paris deserved it more.

Benefit the people of East London? The only people to benefit will be the chinless wonder property speculators who already own half of London and the loadsamoney sparks and brickies who'll hold the project up and then demand 2000 a week to finish it (Millenium dome anyone?)

Sour Grapes? Maybe, but if the government had put their weight behind our bid and we'd lost on a level playing field then I'd have no complaints. Vive La Republic.

And as for the jingoistic triumphalism in the media.....

Well, I do rather feel it's our turn, we haven't hosted the Olympics since 1948. The whole games, start to finish, including stadiums cost 600,000 (about $900,000) then. Hopefully we'll have a bit more to spend this time. In 1948 we were still being rationed, apparantly athletes were entitled to "extra" rations to help keep their strength up.

We are not knocking London (even though I don't enjoy being in London on the odd occassion I venture south), we are knocking the fact that the government is gonna have to fork out a stupidly ridiculous amount of cash to get this going. That money could be used for so many other things, that it's staggering!

You think East London needs refurbishment? Try heading up to Glasgow, where 6 of the 10 poorest areas in the entire UK are located!! And then there is the national problem of homlessness, and child abuse, and the crumbling NHS, and the list goes on and on.

I love the olympics, I watch them avidly, and look forward to them every time they come around. But the cost and upheaval involved in staging them is absolutely ridiculous, and I really think it's gonna be more hassle than it's worth!

It's a sign of the world we live in that the olympics would not even be considered if the government did not smell a healthy profit on all fronts. That being said, we now have a golden opportunity to regenerate this country from the bottom up. Today's children will be the olympians of 2012, inspired by today's news to better themselves. This will extend beyond sport into tourism, marketing, construction,transport etc. Tonights news bulletins carried reports not only on what Great Britain has gained, it also hinted at what France has lost.
In my day unless you had a truly remarkable teacher (or a just as remarkable talent) you would probably have been laughed at for telling your scool careers advisor that you wanted to be an athlete. As of today all that has changed. If it's handled right, this will leave a sporting heritage that can only do us good.
And I'd be the first to admit if couch-potato was an olympic event I'd now be worth more than Micheal Jordan.

And of course, worcester sauce for good measure!! And at times, I like a bit of curry powder mixed in for that extra zing!!

How can you knock beans!!! Beans are fantastic!!

I agree, beans + curry powder is a taste extravaganza. Pure culture and no mistake. Chirac obviously hadn't sampled that culinary delight! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Why is it that you can only find OK Sauce in Chinese supermarkets? I used to love that stuff.

HP is a good substitute though. Think I'm going to have some on fried bread in about five minutes. Yum!

Cheers!

We are not knocking London (even though I don't enjoy being in London on the odd occassion I venture south), we are knocking the fact that the government is gonna have to fork out a stupidly ridiculous amount of cash to get this going. That money could be used for so many other things, that it's staggering!

its not though. over 1.5billion is from the lottery fund and .8 billion is from the city of london council tax. i live in sussex and don't play the lottery so its costing me nothing. besides the olympics is awarded to a city, not a country.

on a side note i laugh as chirac tucks into some british food as he learns that paris lost the race to the brits. humble pie extrodinaire.

So no having fun until we've finished constructing our utopia?

London's net contribution to the national economy in 2000 is estimated to have been about 25 billion a year. Mayor Livingstone recently put it at nearer 50 billion. As London is responsible for over 20% of the wealth generation of this nation it would also be folly not to use this opportunity to regenerate it's infrastructure and give it a chance to remain a world class city from which the rest of the UK benefits throughout the next century. I would that the UK had a second city that could compete with London, but London is the largest city in Europe and its influence and importance is global.

It's a tough act to compete against nationally and it makes sense to me that if the UK has the Olympics they should be staged in London.

If they want to spend a couple of billion of our (their) money to fund an olympics over the next 7 years, something that'll reflect positively on the whole of the United Kingdom, then I think they've earned the right to so. Good for them. In the meantime we'll spend the other tens of billions we get from taxing London and Londoners trying to fix what's wrong with the rest of the nation. They're not getting anything they haven't earned.

London rocks !! Congratulations !!

I'm glad the olympics went to our British brothers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Mr. Chirac can say anything about our food ,
(you can't argue taste issues), but what if our presidents will announce that soap consumption per person is the lowest in France compared to any other country in Europa. This is true accordind statistics http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

And the famous French friendlines and great customer service in restaurants. Oh, I miss it.

See you guys in Duxford nex weekend and lets have good meal and some beer together. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

LMAO!! How do you take that? Does that mean that English cooking is so bad that the abundance of foreign restaurants made it palpatable.. or does that mean that the abundance of foreign restaurants made it more accessable to the world...LOL.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
