The bbc was not going against any of the bid cities nor making hte London bid look better in the stories that are being talked about, it was just showing that some IOC members may be open to bribary, possibly on a tip off from someone i don't know the full background - and I'm sure it's in our interests to make sure the judges are all honest.

was it directed to me ??? i don't think silly at all...i responded to a statement saying that London is 4 votes ahead of Paris...obviously, in any case this could apply to this poll where Paris is dozens of votes behind london...

i guess you were thinking of Mo Rush...who apparently has secret sources that says that london is gaining votes (3 ? 6 ?) over paris among the IOC members...curious to see a link though...

london is four votes ahead of paris, of course its not official but do u really think there arent people at the london 2012 headquartes with photos of each ioc member on the wall calculating who will vote for who and who is certain and who is not, london can gain 2 votes at the berlin and 3 potentials meaning if they really impress 3 members from the commonwealth group of countries they cud have their vote. this is no reference to this poll, which is only right about who first and last place is, paris are 2nd thus far,why does london seem to be working the hardest, one foot wrong from paris and some panorama footage will be released and that court case could turn sour as well as SEB coe's big suprise..there is still soo much more to happen..

All this speculation of who votes who etc etc.......maybe we should leave the politics to the IOC and concentrate on what each bid has to offer?

HA HA ! Mo Rush you're so naive, i can see that your support for London is driving you totally blind. You seem to think that only londoon has the monopoly of this kind of game !!! your statement make it sound as if Paris, NYC, madrid, and Moscow are quietly sleeping on their laurels giving London way to take the biggest slice of the pie !!!

ha ha, so naive !!!

go ahead baby, all you're talking is foolish speculation of a lost fan trying to believe in the bid he supports...

^ Mo means London has a bit of a surprise up its sleeve.

I don't really think it really needs it though. The IOC hates the possibility of empty stadiums and London happens to have the only bid that provides an olympiad for an entire continent. (more details in my London 2012 journal post)

Ah I'm not so sure about that. No matter where the olympics are held (especially in New York City) the stadiums will be full.
