That Olympic 2012 London video someone posted is great. Nice song for our bid too.

Does the amount of Stadiums etc already built etc effect the IOC's votes a lot? What are the main factors that they generally go on?

Why do these people from Madrid (people like you) keep trying to dredge up agruments we've already tried to get past? We do not believe London is the capital of the world. We simply think it has a better bid than Madrid. I think it's very immature that you comment about not going as low as us when, quite obviously, you appear intent on causing an argument where none exists. Realise that it is you attempting to cause problems in this thread. Grow up.

It wont be Madrid or Paris. London is on a roll in the BidIndex right before the vote, just as we and the London bid team said it would. Don't start the race too soon. Hare and the tortoise. The London bid is just getting going.

Very true, London has pounced at just the right time.

Latest Bin Index -

CITY SYM STAT HIGH LOW * CHG INDEX

London LON 05/10 63.40 60.07 2.32 63.40
Madrid MAD 05/10 61.91 55.32 0.80 61.11
Moscow MOS 05/10 50.28 45.58 0.51 49.77
New York NYC 05/10 60.15 56.40 0.73 59.62
Paris PAR 05/10 66.63 61.83 0.63 65.88

Red = Negative Loss / Green = Positive Gain

London is infact at its highest ever position at 63.40 - with a boost of 2.32 with yet more to come.

BIN INDEX 30TH MAY 2005

Paris - 65.88
London - 63.40
Madrid - 61.11
New York - 59.62
Moscow - 49.77

i always like to believe that the ioc choose the city on its legacy after the games not only its ability to put on a great show. however i am a realistic person and would be foolish to think that no favouritism comes into play during the voting procedure. i am just quietly waiting for july 6th to see who wins. i want it to be in london but if its in paris i will be happier than if it was in any of the other citys as its so easy to get to paris now from london, just hop on a train and the GB fans will rock that city!

A few hundred thousand Brits in paris would be nice, watching us run away with the 4x100m relay again on giant screens and showing the French how to drink

The battle will be between Paris (the favourite) and Madrid, in my opinion London lost the chance long time ago. I don't want to offend anybody from London, I think the capital of England is the greatest city in Europe but they haven't worked as hard to get the olympics compared to Paris or Madrid both of the had the bests grades form the IOC.

Keep saying that enough, and it might come true!

London have spent more than any other city on there bid...weve covered the city in flags, banners and posters promoting the bid...you cant look anywhere in London now without seeing the London 2012 Logo.

I think you may be shocked. Based on the amount London has gained over the past 30 days and how much Paris has gained, London should pass it in the BidIndex within a few days. Remember, Paris has been given the Olympics before. London has only had it because other cities weren't capable. I think it says something when a city so badly hit by war in a nation so badly affected by it is the only one capable of hosting the games after WW2.
