Londons bid is the best but I fear we will be dissappointed despite never winning a bid...

Im half French....so if Paris win it it wont be that bad for me..well it shouldnt be anyway.


I did say I would rather Liverpool win the CL than London get the Olympics...But if we dont win im gonna be so upset.

At least they're building all but 2 venues if we win the Olympics or not.

this is better, showcase your bids peeps, no bickering please,...am loving the parisian lighting. esp the eiffel tower stuff. tres cool....i will never forget tho being in london when all the 2012 stuff was up and about on all the big monuments. was amazing

i think one billion is a tad excessive tho lol but then 'b' is close to 'm' on the keyboard so lets hope its a typo lol

i also love the fact that london have been so simple in the day-to-day promo of the bid by doing little things such as the stickers on the tube...so simple but always remind you that we are going for it big time.

one thing that really stands out in both the london and paris bids is their focus on the adults of 2012...loved the bit in the school on the london video of all the kids who will be 21 in 2012 and also with the paris bid piccies on here now..all the kids involved as they are the ones who will be growing up thru the development of whichever bid is successful. am getting quite excited.

as for my two penneth worth.

i want london to win but i wouldnt be dissapointed if paris beat us.

the only music that has ever worked well with the OG is:

1. LA 84. john williams first fanfare
2. ATL 96. john williams second fanfare
3. BAR 92. freddie and monseratt...BAAAAAARCELOOOOONA woo hoo

i actually think that heather small what have you done today is pretty damn good choice for a bid song
