I can't believe it .....!!!
This is going to be wonderful - Cricket at the Olympics - 20-20 at 2012!!
Live 8 and the Olympics bid win in the same week - the world's getting to be a better place and it's getting harder to be a grumpy old man!!
Ya beat me to it bruce!
So... what? How? I'm pretty surprised!
I honestly thought it would go to Paris, am very glad I was proved wrong
This makes up for our food being rubbish
We really really kicked their ass too. Great. The French PM lost alot of my respect this last week.
And your girls being ugly
Before anyone attacks me - It's only a joke
Somebody who cooks that bad etc etc
Third time France loses the Olympics, must be a bummer..
London has some of the best French Restaurants in the world!!
Seriously I think the French negative attitude spoiled their bid on the day, whereas London was only positive and inspirational!!
It was very close apparently!
The French had a negative attitude? Shocking!
Oh and to add to all the stereotypes being laid out...
I just want to say that you've still got a long way to go before you're eligible for the dental olympics.
I wonder whether Chirac will enjoy his dinner tonight, alongside Tony Blair in Scotland....
I'd love to eavesdrop on that conversation
Like a fly on the wall or fly in Chirac's soup.....
what'd chirac do?
He said Great Britain had the worst food ever (paraphrased).
...yeah, prime ministers aren't supposed to say things like that.
especially about bruce lindfield's country.
Chirac is the president of France. Dominique de Villepin is the PM.
ah, my mistake.
i guess i was confused for two reasons:
1) i don't know the titles of people in french government (guess it's similar to germany's?)
2) references to chirac and the PM previously in this thread.
anyway, back to the olympics...
Capital, dear boy!!
