it cant go
I hope your wrong and Madrid wins,but i agree that Paris seems to be the city to beat.

Well i hope i am wrong too and either madrid or london wins, it is a bit unfair though for spain to get the games so soon again, you must see the logic in that!!

London has the best proposal in my eyes, but i must admit i haven't seen the latest proposals form the other cities, only the originals.

What i worry about is that if Paris wins the bid on its third time lucky strategy, London may not bid again. The public and government in Britain are hardly comfortable with the cost of the games and if we lose 2012 they common reaction will be that we have wasted millions of pounds trying to get the games and shouldn't repeat the mistake. Even if we did bid again what would the chances be of Europe winning again before at least 2024?

I think that above all, what really matters in order for a city to host an olympic venue is the safety it can offer. One tends to select a host city in terms of continent switch or on matters of the heart. Nevertheless, Lisbon offers what any civilized and modern city in the world has, but above all it offers safety for all. Don't forget Portugal is a country that is not hated or persecuted by anyone or any specific international group. Bear that in mind!

Anyone think the scenes at the football in Madrid last night may have an effect on the bid? It doesn't reflect well, but i think its not so widely reported outside England and Spain.

Well, my city isn't on there, but Rotterdam is. Where did you read/hear that they were bidding? This is news to me. Either way, I don't really need/want the olympics to be held in my country. Unless its profitable, but you never know that until its too late.

I also think Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro should bid so they are added to the list...

If you have any other suggestions add them to the list

Minneapolis/St. Paul? That's totally different. They won't get it anyway, eh?
