Hell yeah. Its my firm belief that when German in fact conquered France, that became Germany, then we invaded Germany (formerly France) and took that area..and then gave it back...to the French. Ah well.

Good thing London is so easy to get round, plenty of parking and space etc, not crowded in the slightest. Just the right spot for thounsands upon thousands of fans to come and watch one of the biggest sporting events ever.

If they can't get a website working, what chance do we have of running the games...
It's seriously great though, our French office has stopped responding to calls from us (it might have had something to do with me phoning their polycom with a picture of the union jack & the national anthem playing though...)

Reminds me of when we beat germany 5-1 and we where working with a german software house, we each sent (22 of us) 5 copies of a avi of each goal and numerous jpgs from match and mp3s of rule britania funny thier mail server couldnt cope, boss had to tell us to stop in between pissing himself

You're kidding, right?

It's going to cost all of us an absolute fortune. Something in the order of 3 billion pounds has been set aside for it, and I expect that'll just be the start of it. The contractors will soon get their teeth into it and inflate the price just like they did with the Wembley Stadium.
Let's just hope that the few thousand jobs that will be created by it will still be there after the fuss has all died down.

Sorry if I sound negative towards it, that's just because I am.
They were making similar claims for increased employment, urban regeneration etc for the dome, and look what happened to that. It's a car park now I believe.
We still have elderly people freezing to death in the winter in this country because it would cost a few tens of millions of pounds to subsidise their heating costs, but there is plenty of money for this sort of thing.

I think that was already in the plan, as from where I'm sitting the Dome has a great big poster on it (it's under the flight-path for London city airport) saying 'London 2012 Candidate City - Host Venue'

that's a minority of small-minded people. most people, however, are normal and civilised so don't go jumping to conclusions

I thought it was the city that covered the cost of it not the country? hence why they say its being held in London instead of saying its being held in england?

The city is paying 10% of the cost. The rest is coming from the government, the lottey and business. I don't know in what proportions.
