    London would be my preference. It's pretty much between London and Paris anyway.

    PARIS President Jacques Chirac of France cracked jokes about mad cow diseases and bad English food during a conversation with President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of Germany in Kaliningrad on Sunday, a French daily, Libération, reported Monday.

    "The only thing they have ever done for European agriculture is mad cow," Chirac joked, eliciting laughter from Schröder and Putin, the newspaper said. As for British food, Chirac apparently said, "You can't trust people who cook as badly as that."

    Paris, but don't know much about each bid. To go to London to watch the olympics would just cost too much.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Obviously I want London to get it, but expect to see the Frogs given it.

    Not sure why NY has bid, seeing as it was in the US not that long ago.

    I did see that there's a rumour that Moscow, London and Madrid are conspiring that they advice anyone who backs them to switch to ensure they get rid of Paris if they get knocked out in the first round.

    As an ex- resident of London I am probably biased , but IMO London is a truly wonderful City.

    I loved it when I lived there and couldn't get enough of this truly amazing City with so much to do and so many thousand facets to it . The cutural melting pot , the great variety and a truly Romantic City If you know what I mean !!

    I love London !!

    London all the way !!!!

    I'm going for London.

    Madrid won't get it as a fall out of the RFEF (Spanish football/soccer federation) giving out p***weak fines (less then $2000) to the racial abuse that was dished out by fans (Spain v England is the biggest example) they may as well not have fined them at all. Plus there is always ETA.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
