Today the United Kingdom Independence Party announced they support the Paris 2012 Olympic bid, because the London bid will bankrupt the capital and cost taxpayers (exclusively in London due to red Ken's lack of guts) huge sums of money.
I totally support this stance. Londoners tax bill is obscene enough, the olympics has proved to be all pain, little gain for most previous host cities. Montreal is still paying off its debt over 20 years later! Moreover, Ken in his infinite wisdom (ha ha) has pledged to spend whatever money necessary to keep the facilities running once built. The land designated for the facilities is on very low land which will undoubtedly be flooded in every few years in the future, costing us more and more money. Also this puts the final nail in the coffin of the crazy and unfounded suggestion put forward by a few nutters that UKIP is xenophobic, because they have carefully considered the evidence and chosen to support Paris over London based on whats actually best for London.
"exclusively in London due to red Ken's lack of guts" lol are you suggesting any other city should have to pay for that, should it go ahead?
I don't actrually live in London, but feel I should stick up for good old Ken anyway (go you labour rebel) (and yes, I know he's back in the party now).
Why do you reckon he's failed? I can't really argue with you 'cause I have no knowledge of London, but I'd be interested to know why. He seems to have had quite a good press really.
UKIPs actions are nothing more than a cheap attempt to gain publicity.
I think the Olympics will be greatly beneficial to London by regenerating alot of run down areas whilst creating many jobs.
