London 2012

So it looks as if the Olympics will be heading this way next decade. I doubt it will be long before our wonderful political parties start fighting over it. You can depend on them.

I am though quite pleased. I am, of course, especially pleased that we beat France. In many respects beating France was more important than winning the Games themselves. Who says this 900+ year antagonism isn't petty and all-encompassing? Or, for that matter, very much alive.

Jacques Chirac must be wondering what he has done to deserve so many breaks against him. Strangely I am not the least bit sympathetic to his plight. Tony Blair, on the other hand, is flying high.
