I suspect this subject might stir the pot up a bit, but in all seriousness what with it being right on our doorstep fairly soon, its surely worth a topic of its own ?

I have very mixed feelings about it all. Its become an out of control juggernaut in many respects, and has long since lost its amateur ideals of sportmanship and fair play. Im just interested to hear what other people think about The London Games in general.

I could start with a few negatives of my own, but won't for now !

Its big business, with huge dividends, we inside the M25 pay more than the rest of the country, and all pay the same on a pension or £50k a year job, it was under estimated as Ken admitted telling a few porkies to secure it for London, and for our money don't even get to see the site, unless you pay extra to what they just take by adding it to your poll tax, it is an open ended pricing format, that a few have got rich with, and you only get to see what you have paid for on television. a nice little earner for some. :evil: :roll: :shock:
