    Have some of that Chirac, not been the best few weeks for you eh? :D

    If anything I'm happy because at least they'll now be forced to re-develop Stratford and the rest of East London, which is a hole at the moment.

    What a brilliant result, i'm gonna try to get tickets for as much as possible.

    It seems like France taking Chirac was like London taking Prince Phillip. :)

    Jesus....I'll be 30 by the time :shock:

    I'm ecstatic to hear about this. The Stratford area is a dump at the moment - it will be good to finally see that area all pimped up :mrgreen: ;)

    But my heart goes out to all the French. They really wanted it...Whether Chirac's comments had any affect or not, his political career is over

    In the short term, yes. But TV income, sponsors, housing from the redeveloped areas, tourist sales etc.... makes up for it all and then some.

    I'm gonna start rationing my weekly allowance of alcohol from this moment on - a sudden drop of money and items for myself would be too hard to take once the taxes kick in

    Exactly, countries don't apply for the olympics to burn up cash!

    Moscow and Montreal were still paying their Olympics debt until last year.

    Olympics are very good for boosting a country's image, and future tourism.

    On a different note Milanista, I thought the 1990 World Cup was magnificent. Is Italy still paying for that?

    True...but I think TV revenue and sponsorship deals have become more ever present since then. Olympics is a huge commercial event with companies willing to spend zonks. I get the feeling that a vast majority of the construction work will be covered by commercial deals alone.....or am I being too optimistic?

    I doubt you (the english people) will suffer at all from the debts. The government probably has some plan to spread it out or somehting like that.
