No one has said anything about London being perfect. You obviously have a chip on your shoulder about London and Britons. If you don't want us to say nice things about London or criticise other bids, what do you want us to write about?

The last few pages were about how others were slagging off London for not having experience of how to deal with terrorism, where obviously it has. You criticise us for being critical of other cities when apparently we aren't qualified to say anything, when you are guilty of the exact same thing.

it's as wide as a hockey pitch.

I'm sure the planners or architects will make it look good.

What a bunch of dip-sticks some forumers can be.Terrorist attacks can occur anywhere.Security isn't a perfect science.It's impossible to monitor everything that goes on anywhere.We can only pray it doesn't happen on our doorstep.Or no one elses for that matter.

Perhaps Moscow hasnt got all the money of London has for safety, but you cant pay the experience with money. So london ones, come down from your high cloud and be interested about the projects of the other cities because youre joking about them compared with ur fabulous city and all of them are excellent bids, and ALL OF THEM have GOOD and bad things, including your city¬¬.
The stupidity of some forumers is quite suprising sometimes. Do some research.

^Agreed, his ignorance is not only annoying but offensive to all those thousands of people who lost their lives, and their loved ones, in sectarian violence over N.I.

Take it easy!For many people English is not their first language.So it's not un-commom for a person to misinterpret things.
