777236ER: Before being so unnecessarily unfavourable towards my post, swearing at me and then making unfounded claims as to the 'type' of person I am, please care to think.
1.) I am not a 'typical' criticising Brit.
2.) I do not read the Daily Mail. I actually dispise this paper.
3.) If you care to search, I am actually one of the few people who has profound praise for London's transport system.
1.) 'I went, it was awesome. Why does this mean the 2012 olympics will be a farce?'
- You must be the only person in the UK who actually thinks £2bn spent on this is 'awesome'. You must be completely incompetent not to understand the significance of a proven track record in large project management and the link this has to an Olympic bid.
2.) 'Nonsense. Terminal Five at LHR
is coming on quite well.'
KOREA WENT THROUGH INDUSTRIALISATION FASTER THAN THE UK GAVE PLANNING CONSENT TO T5
. Now let me see, things are progressing very well, aren't they? Albeit, just a DECADE behind schedule.
3.) 'Lack of spelling and grammar notwithstanding, care to cite any examples?'
Everything stated already if you care to read: Thameslink 2000, the Dome, the Jubliee Lne Extension - and then a new chapter for its signalling system too. Crossrail 1 & 2. The East London Line Extension - THESE ARE NOT NEW
PROJECTS - MOST INCLUDING T5
ARE NOW OVER 20YEARS OLD AND
STILL WAITING WHILE PUBLIC MONEY IS
BEING SPENT UNPRODUCTIVELY.
4.) 'it is making a point of putting stadia in poorer areas, in an effort to regenerate those areas.'
Why don't we put a stadium next to your house so your kids 'stop breaking into cars' as you say. Regeneration does not occur by simply throwing money at an area and building things - just look at the Docklands. ALL
THE UK SEEMS TO DO IS
GENTRIFY AREAS AND
THEN MOVE THE 'PROBLEM PEOPLE' AWAY - TAKE A LOOK AT
A GOOD EXAMPLE.
5.) 'What the f*** does this have to do with the Olympic bid?!'
6.) 'Seems you have a problem with Labour's rail policy, not the Olympic bid.'
Your use of the English Language exhibits your stature perfectly. If it has not occurred to you, the IOC believe much of the London bid's success is subject to resolving Transport issues. An orbital link has long been necessary and stated as a solution to some of these. PEOPLE NEED TO
THE OLYMPICS YOU KNOW? - HARD CONCEPT BUT YOU MIGHT JUST GET IT
DON'T SWEAR - BEING POLITE DOES NOT HURT.
7.) 'Eight Years away'
yes the Olympics are, but not the bid - and let me see, we really got all the transport programs completed within eight years of their conception, didn't we? I suppose that is why we are still waiting for so many of them!!!
8.) 'Why don't you run for office?'
Why don't you go and get yourself a brain transplant - and make sure the replacement actually works!
9.) 'Nothing to do with the Olympic bid.'
Of course, transport has nothing to do with the Olympic bid as we all know from your teachings.
10.) 'Definitely so - they don't have idiots like you.'
So well placed you are to condemn others as 'idiots' aren't you? This coming from someone who believes the Dome is 'awesome'.
A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it as when you are in it.
