    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I'm not advocating a blank cheque but it's ridiculous that some aspiring sportspeople in one of the world's proudest sporting nations dont have access to facilities or those at grass roots level dont have the option of playing certain sports at school because teachers dont get paid overtime and therefore wont consider anything that takes them past closing time
    pfft extra money spent on sport is effectively taken away from other areas. You can't just say it's beneficial in isolation. And yeah of course there are plenty of other examples you can come up with, but since when do two wrongs make a right. It's about striking a balance, and I think sport in this country easily has enough funding, especially the olympics where a damn lot of it is simply down to wanting to maintain 'national pride' or some other bs.

    Dunno, the standard has probably just been set by precedent in the previous few games; i.e ranked near the top 5 with 10+ gold. Anything much less than that will no doubt be condemned. Hell I'm pretty sure even for Beijing some people weren't particularly happy.

    haha. Yeah can't say I'll be overjoyed if she does win, will only mean another post match interview where I'm actually ashamed to be Australian.
