As this poll is scientific, this must be foretelling the future. Quick! Call Singapore and tell them their vote will not be needed, some SSC forumers have spoken!

I think some SSC forumers don't know anything at all about humor but a lot about being disgusting.

Go Madrid, Olympics will be yours (but all other 4 cities deserve it too)

A couple of hours just before the process, I still think it's all going to be between London and Madrid.

British and spanish think that Paris will win :

Poll

"Independently of your personal wish, which city, according to you, will be indicated to organize the 2012 Olympics ?"

British :
Paris --> 42%
London --> 36%
Madrid --> 6%

Spanish :
Paris --> 50%
Madrid --> 34%
London --> 4%
....

I just don't know how this is going to go...

I want London to have it, I think they can get it.. its the right time, the right attitude and we have shown over the past years just how well we can do these things..

At the same time, Paris.. its third attempt, surely they're gonna give more apathy to the French for trying so hard, with such successful, well planned bids?? Whilst I feel sorry for them for trying so hard, I still don't want them to get it.. but only because I want it so much.. If we shouldn't get it though, I'd much rather they got it than Madrid (or NYC/Moscow) for the simple reason of trying so hard to get it (Whilst Barcelona is still a 'recent' games)..

No....no votes really 'count' on this forum...just nice knowing how people feel.


Each city has 45 min to promot their bid on voting day.

There was something on Ch5 (UK) Today...and some of the IOC members said they had already made up their mind.

It will be between Paris and London.

My heart wants London, but I have a feeling she'll be Paris. The French are the consumate politicians.

What was said by a couple of IOC officials really is true though. Tony Blair is by far and away London's biggest asset for this bid. A Tony Blair charm offensive will blow the French politicians away. This thing will all come down to back room politics.

I agree, Paris' weakpoint is when Chirac opens his mouth, just look at the headlines in Britain today about our farming and food - i am not saying it is the best food in the world but he should at least learn to keep his gob shut sometimes...oh well hopefully it'll help Paris lose some IOC votes (prob not..)
