David Beckham, one of our most famous sportsmen, and famous brands.. who was involved with the 2012 bid, why shouldn't he be the one carrying the torch on..

and as for Leona, bit suspect of a duet.. but she has a voice to fill any arena, even the bird's nest.. its a good start to showcasing 2012 in my opinion, irregardless of where or how she got to fame.

I'm no fan of the X Factor...but if you think the 2007 winner would "cost more" than the 2006 winner, then you're clearly insane.

How lovely. Why don't you bugger off somewhere else then.

Or the fact that Leona Lewis is an amazing singer who is set to be a world famous diva, as opposed to the guy the next year of which most people have no idea of and isn't up to the job'.

The Olympians time will come. This is a closing ceremony and people are well aware of Olympians given that it is the closing ceremony of the biggest sports event in the world full of 'Olympians'.

Darjole is right, Beckham is world famous and the Chinese love him. This seems like good planning and great PR to me.

Stay in Birmingham would you? There will be a lot of talented people working bloody hard to make sure London 2012 is a great spectacle. If you want to sit on the sidelines and spout shite like that (which quite frankly is embarrassing and makes you sound like you've come straight from the 1970s), then do. But don't come to London.



To be perfectly honest, I'm heartened that the likes of you doesn't like what London is doing, because if you did I'm fairly sure they'd be doing something wrong.

I'm all in favour of using Linford Christie.
