Shame, lots of us out here would have been in agreement...
I keep hearing about how there will be ecconomic benifits, not sure how I am going to get any benifit for my extra Coucnil Tax over the next few years
I'm with you all on this. Although I do enjoy watching sport and will be watching some of the events from time to time I do think the expenditure is way over the top by a few billion pounds! They keep telling us it is of benefit to us all but I would dearly love to know how! Will my taxes be reduced in any way? No way!Shirley Anne x
I watched the opening ceremony which I thought was quite good.Tonight I saw the highlights of the GB women's football match against Brazil. I might actually watch their next match against Canada if I remember. Other than that there is just the triathlons that I'm planning on watching, anything else will be because the rest of the family are watching something.I really do hope that there will be some benefit comes out of these games for the country as a whole but more importantly for the communities around the venues.
A week into the Games and I'm ashamed to say I am enjoying some of the sport. The athletes are saving the spectacle.But the Enforced Happiness, with Boris Johnson telling us all to smile? Ugh!
