... do you care?

Do you think we'll be ready in time?

Will you go and watch?

Do you think it'll be good for us financially / on the world stage / helping to promote sport in kids?

Any other questions I've missed out? ;-)

People are stupid. That's why they call it the twenty-twelve olympics.

Something like 70% of the people asked did want the Olympics to come to England so apparently, yes we did...

What's bothering me more is the way is everyone's calling it "the twenty twelve olympics" rather than "the two thousand and twelve olympics".

Do we going around saying it's the "7th of July, twenty-O-five"? No, of course we don't.

But then again, before the millennium nobody said "nineteen hundred and ninety nine", we were all saying "nineteen ninety nine" so it appears that consistency doesn't mean a damn thing to most people.

Rant over.

We could pair up and compete in the wheelchair pushing events: I smile whilst you push me for 26 miles - sound good? We could both get gold then.

Wrong. Londoners have to pay an extra 20 a year for ten years...

Yup.

I hope it's a national thing and taxes are spread over the whole country, not just London boroughs...

And that's even more shameful.

"Some athletics! Wow! Great! You want money? No problem."
Or someone suggests spending X million on something worthwhile.."sorry, don't have the funds..can't justify blah blah blah".

Perhaps although it'd most likely be squandered on providing prosthetic limbs for transsexual grannies.

Aha. Someone pointed something out to me today. Regardless of whether that money would have been useful in many other areas, it never would have been raised or used for those other things even if we hadn't got the games.

I'm personally not bothered about the Olympics because I have no interest in athletics. Plus I'm sure the millions of pounds they'll spend on it could be used much better elsewhere.
