London gets the 2012 Olympics

Paris lost out to the arch foe London. Barely a week has gone by since the Poms celebrated the winning of the Battle of Trafalgar 200 years ago over the French and Spanish naval fleets - (albeit now very PC - no winner in the re-inactment); the French are losers again to Les Rosbif's. This is proving to be a year from hell for Jacques Chirac.

Chirac's European Union vision is in tatters, the Euro is tanking, and now the Brits, about who he has personally been so scathing of late, have beaten him hands-down in a winner take all contest for who gets to spend gazillions on a Sports Festival.

Front runners for the last two years (probably self declared!) Paris had the winning snatched away at the final lap.

Hit the road Jacques!

Well done Seb.

This project will be good for London and Britain

Rule Britannia
