As for the talented people working on this - well copying their ideas from Manchester's commonwealth games opening ceremony hardly identifies them as being rocket scientists does it?
is this how u get your kicks? stop destroying the thread.

Yes.....the victory of a troll. You've managed to piss off the entire forum and contribute nothing of any worth. Congratulations, you must be so proud.

Or maybe I've managed to put across a series of very valid points.

On topic?!! All you've done is accuse London of copying Manchester, let us know that you only care about Birmingham and couldn't give a fig about what goes on outside of it, dismissed the handover segment before you've even seen it and informed us all that having a black man at the opening ceremony would score points for the so-called 'PC brigade' (a comment so cringeworthy that I don't know where to start.)

I can't find ONE valid criticism from you of the organisation of London 2012 in the last four pages, not ONE. There is nothing to argue against!! So as far as I'm concered dismissing you out of hand is the correct response; as it always has been for a troll.

Michael Phelps to join London 2012 handover
Swimmer Michael Phelps will be in London this weekend to be part of the celebrations when the city is officially named the next city to host the Summer Olympics.
Phelps won a historic eight gold medals in Beijing, beating Mark Spitz's record of seven in a single Olympics, and will travel to London on his way back to the United States from China.

Phelps, who is the most successful Olympian of all time with 14 gold medals in total, said: "It will be a great opportunity to celebrate the success of the Beijing Games and kick off the countdown to London 2012."
