    Just waiting now to see how long before the reports of delays and strikes begin to come in ;)

    Seriously, I hope it will turn out to be as good for London (and the rest of the UK) as predicted, and that the transport improvements in particular will be of lasting benefit - just a little apprehensive over the disruption in the meantime.

    Mr Blair called me from Singapore immediately he heard the decision... he realises of course, that the quickest way to get news filtered around the world is to use bandspeople via the one and only tMP...:biggrin::biggrin:

    I just saw it on the telly and it was brilliant, our promo video was exceptional and the experts were saying that they reckoned our presentation this morning swung it!

    We've won it now, it's going to happen, I just hope that the whingers and mud-slingers don't try and sour it. I hope that everyone gets behind it cos it's going to be one hell of an event!

    You bet Roy... Ryder Cup in my home town in 2010, then Olympics in 2012... what a cracking couple of years.

    Great news this :woo

    To be honest I'm a little surprised but hey we did it!! Well done Lord Coe and his team.

    I just hope we can keep the inevitable cynics and critics quiet and we make this a big a success as we are capable of doing.

    Now...where's that queue for the tickets to the 100m final??? :tongue:

    Never mind the 100M Ian... after watching the Final of the Badminton Mixed Doubles last year... never seen anything so exciting in my life.. what a corking performance. That's be the one I'd want to get tickets for...
