London gets Olympics

Nuts. This is going to be embarassing. Based on the list of public infrastructure failures ("delayed projects" sorry) that this country has, chances of getting it right are very minimal. Also, a lot of lottery and govt money targetted at grassroots sports is going to be diverted to this huge public project. Net result will be less money at the grassroots, so less kids can get involved.

On the plus side, the politicians' excuses will be great, and we may have a good underground system by about 2020.

    Interesting point about grassroots sport. I think you maybe should have a bit more faith in us to get the infrastructure sorted but I will wait for the wriggling of political worms.
