The fact is all news organisations target news towards their target audiance.

The article Coth posted was of national interest since people saw on tV in the UK Spanish fans in Madrid doing racist chants. It would be odd if the BBc did not report this. further it came to my mind and others the possibility that racism could affect the Spanish olympic bid. nothing they said was untrue.

It was a very relevent news story.

You can only take so much bullshit from a country that has only been a democracy for 50 years and . A country that had colonies in south america that have all been piss-poor third world failures . A country where they were still riding on donkeys 20 years .

No Spanish Concorde . No Spanish Aston Martin , Jaguar or Rolls Royce . In fact what has spain ever made ? I can't think of any modern industrial product that the spanish have invented whether it be a tv , car , plane , tank , ship or bloody vaccuum cleaner .

Spain .....one of europe's second rate nations that has just started to look a bit better thanks to the EU and the richer more successful countries like the UK , Germany , Holland & France handing it money

Spain.....the type of country where they would openly go hysterical in the streets if they ever won the eurovision song contest or actualy won anything because they never have .

Pathetic bunch of children.....runing around an internet forum getting your little greasy third world gang together and getting all excited over a silly little online poll . If you had a better history and hadn't been such a failure you A . wouldn't be so bloody excited over nothing and B . Wouldn't be so ******* desperate to get noticed .

Greasy ******* third world spicks .

Only a bastard can say a such shit...

another one? will this thread actually discuss the bids and be more than a big childish argument between the spaniards who think madrid actually have a chance and the UK people who aggrevate the situation by angering the spaniards who cant really speak english?

I don't say it is wrong. UK's media drawing in high London, French - Paris, US - New York, Spanish - Madrid, Russia - Moscow and other cities in bad. It is normal. Everyone want to see their city as Olympic hoster.

Btw. Talking about - who want where.

Today's article by Gamesbids.
85% of Russians support Moscow bid.
81% of French support Paris bid.
68% of British support London bid.
57% of Spaniards support Madrid bid.
44% of US citizens support New York.

i don't believe these datas. how could madrid get a mark of 10 in support in the first ioc evaluation while then they are saying than only 57% os spaniards wants it?¿¿?¿
