about an african, or sudamerican city to host the games, i think it should bee soon, by justice, maybe cape town, rio, buenos aires....
i think the games must help to give up the cities, not only to increase some tv or sponsors accounts, so, do you think in terms of economics or global image that london, paris or new york, need the games?
please be sincere and think about it
================================

Sincerely ? No . London does not need the games in order to boost it's image . It is an historic world city and doesn't need the publicity . That doesn't mean that it does not deserve the games for all kinds of reasons .

Come to think of it, Paris and Madrid probably can't even hold the Olympics because the new EU Working Time Directive will be in force there come 2012..

Its 48 hours and was part of the Maastricht treaty of which the UK negotiated an opt-out, but now the European Parliament has voted to abolish the UK opt-out but the UK government is fighting it in the council of ministers.

So even before your 35 hour week, you were already limited to 48

Worse than that ; any athlete caught working overtime will sent to Le Chambre De Horruers where they will be take into a dark dungeon to be forced to watch a video of Jaques Chirac stripteasing down to his fuzzy bits dressed as Edith Piaf .

Javier it's important to take into account both the number of times and distance between those the individual cities have had the olympics and the same for the individual countries otherwise it simply isn't fair.

Exciter I did not call you stupid so sorry if you thought that was aimed at you, but I was saying your comment that solely the city is taken into account was stupid. Don't take everything so offensively.

And finally Mo_rush I agree that after 2012 the olympics should go to somewhere in S. America or Africa. I'd like to see Cape town hold them.

You have nothing to apologise for JDR . It might be more interesting for you if you ignore the teenagers with a limited vocabulary and thought processes .
