>>>The kids of the inner cities deserve this high profile support.

But it not the 'kids of the inner cities' its the kids of one inner city - London.

While the Olympics may have been awarded to London, the last time I looked the team we enter will be a British team, so where's the call for high profile patrons for sports clubs in Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Leeds, Bradford, Sheffield, Liverpool, Glasgow, Belfast, etc.

Heaven forbid that public figures should - gasp - have to get up off their overpaid, overvalued and overprivileged arses and venture out into the uncultured wilds past the ring of the M25.

This isn't patronage, just plain old patronising.
