.......anybody who drowns sparrows in brandy, roasts them in the oven and then eats them with a tea towel over their head............and then force feed geese until the liver explodes, needs to have a serious word with themselves..

And Chirac has a pop at our food!!!!

I was just thinking the same thing about my parents. Although...they do live a good three or four hours away. Still....

in all honestly, while i've had delicious Indian food in London, i'm going to have to reluctantly agree with the superiority of French food to British food.

I will admit the food wasn't the reason why I loved the U.K on my two visits there, but I did love those cream teas. Scones! Cream! Yum!

I'm sure the IOC puts a lot of weight in the quality of food category when deciding on a host city for the Olympics.

Um, I had created another thread for this in 'Put 'Em Under Pressure'

I love London as a city... the only thing that annoyed me was David Beckham celebrating... beware for our Argentine revenge in next year's World Cup

OK...I'm gonna play cynic. I wonder how happy Brits are gonna be when they are saddled with massive debt and shoved out of the way for hoards of obnoxious (possibly more obnoxious than usual) tourists?


But congratulations!!!

London is already geared to the tourism industry. It will be a wonderful host.

I like the Olympics in theory, but I would be pissed as all hell if it came to a city I lived in.

This is FYM after all...

They will probably give it to him to clean it.
