    Not sure yet whether I think it's a good thing... :) They'll need to sort out the transport system first!

    Mind you, by 2012 we won't be living in London (unless something tragic happens) so it won't really matter.

    If you owned your own place by then you could rent it out at huge rates for two weeks. That'd be neat.

    The house prices in the EastEnd are going to go through the fucking roof. I still wouldn't live there though, north of the river...yuk.

    Yeah that is rather strange, coming only a day beforehand. Bit like rain on your wedding day really.

    Why the Isle of Wight?

    I saw so much 2012 Olympic Contender promo crap in Paris, I was annoyed they didn't get it, as it seemed I put up with all that for nothing. :lol:

    But don't Cuba and Japan usually win the baseball at the Olympics? I can't be bothered checking.
