Now, I don't like to say I told you so, as I see I didn't, but for those people who might be reading this and to whom I ranted about this subject last year ... I TOLD YOU SO.
I can only see one substantial benefit from us hosting the bloody Olympics. Out of misplaced gingoistic sporting pride and so that we don't pull our usual trick of winning all the tin medals, we will, no doubt, be spending lavish amounts on new sporting facilities so that potential athletes can receive training that will give them some sort of chance. These facilites will hopefully be made available to the general British public, a generally unfit bunch who need every incentive they can get.
Perhaps that was the reason behind our government's enthusiasm for the event. I doubt it somehow.

I know, I know, I'm as picky as you are...
