David, the Commonwealth Games were beautifully handled. I am even more pleased that you are so proud to have contributed financially to Manchester City's new stadium.
London has an excellent chance. And it is sad, but true, that the IOC are not greatly interested in a bid from anywhere in the UK except London. That might be (well it is, isn't it?) parochial, ignorant and stupid, but if want an Olympics in this country, it is the way things are. Let's hope the government handle things better than they did with the World Cup 2006 bid.
