    Oh well thats everyones council tax bill doubled for the next ten years to pay for it all...Estimates in excess of a billion to host the games and every host nation since the fifties have never recovered anywhere near there outlay...:(


    I'm pleased we got it, but wasn't too bothered because of the financial cost to us the taxpayers...

    I'm glad we got it, but I wouldn't have minded if paris got it in the end - its still just a quick eurotunnel ride away and they'd pay for it all. ;)

    I hope it will regenerate some parts of London that need it, but as always I just wish some parts were held in other parts of the UK (Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff are all capable of hosting some large events).

    Yay! :)

    I'm glad we beat the French, although I'm quite suprised that we did - I was really expecting Paris to win

    I look forward to it :D

    Serves the french right for making fun of us and our cuisine. They had it coming.

    Good old UK.
    Well done;
    Taffy a Welshman and five mates went to France to see Wales playing France at rugby, after the match [which Wales won] he and his mates went to a restaurant, they sat down and the waiter came to take their order, after they had ordered the waiter started to walk away, when he reached the bar Taffy shouted hey waiter have you got FROGS legs, the waiter answered in a proud voice YES Sir I have, so Taffy said in a prouder voice well HOP over here and bring six pints of beer with you boyo; :p
