And the 2012 Olympics are awarded to... London!?!
Worth the billions just to see the French miserable.
Good stuff! Now we don't have to get all of the announcements translated

I definitely think London deserved it over Paris, the French crowds in the French Open in the tennis for example are just a disgrace - players about to serve and you get a 1 minute mexican wave followed by them all applauding themselves, or the way they boo players all game.
Anyway I'm glad I don't live in London even more now... the years building up (literally) til the games will be even more chaotic.
Utterly wonderful news.
I am happy to put myself forward as CricketWeb's official reporter at the Games (what? There's no cricket? What difference does that make?)

I hear he likes the food.
Something strange happened a little over half an hour ago - as though 58 million people cried out as if in triumph - only to have the word 'magnifique' suddenly change to 'merde'. You could describe it as a 'disturbance of the farce'.
Such a shame. I was wishing for Chirac's sake that the vote difference could have come down to 1 - and that being the Finnish judge changing his mind at the last minute after yesterday's faux-pas over food.
Bwahaha. Post of the day.Originally Posted by Samuel_Vimes
