I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

I live in London, and I haven't seen a tidal wave of enthusiasm. In fact, most of the people I've spoken to about the Olympics think it was a waste of money bringing it here and never wanted it here in the first place.

"Sport will bring this country together under one banner." - Have you seen the FIFA World Cup? That's what brings the nation together, not the Olympics. The Olympics are what most people watch if there's nothing much better on TV at the time. Even when sport brings the nation together, it doesn't last any longer than the tournament. Why do you think this time will be any different?

I am not trying to kill this pledge. As I have already pointed out, I am merely expressing my opinions on the true reasons behind it and my expectations for its outcome. If you don't like it, stop posting and reading. Otherwise, as I said before, get your bloody facts straight.

Oh, and why haven't you answered Ben's question about school playing fields? I made that same point myself a while back, but you didn't address it then either. You're so good at not answering questions that I'm beginning to think you're a politician.
