Maybe if we bring Carl Lewis back to do the Jessie Jackson crap. Actually maybe someone who wasn't on the juice.

I think multi-sport events have started to get the message in terms of keeping a lid on costs, after for example the overgrown white elephant venues of Athens 2004 and its contribution to the country’s bankruptcy/near-Grexit... there will always be self-promoting propaganda states willing to push the boat out, but they need to make it accessible to a wide range of cities, and there’s a problem with local public opinion turning against bids, now the whole “legacy” idea has been shown up as largely false. There’s a lot further to go to address it, and we could end up with some ”ready to go” repeat hosts stepping in.

Birmingham seems to be using a lot of existing and temporary facilities for 2022, including hosting the track cycling 100 miles away in London instead of building another expensive velodrome.

Is there anything as plainly silly and irrelevant as the Colonwealth? I note Prince Chuckles was elected last night as tit head of CHOGM, tho 6 rebel countries voted against him or abstained.

The BREXIT Pomgolians appear desperate to find 'friends' in an unkind world. In an Empah Redux, PM Maybe struck the stentorian tones of a dementing Thatcherite.

Oz PM Truffles squealed obeisance.

A pox on this period of history.

No longer. Chuckles got 46 votes from a potential 53. Off with their heads. German Betty is cross.

He was approved as the NEXT head of CHOGM, after Liz steps down (or dies).
