Response to London 2012
Makes me laugh. why don't we let people show up and buy a ticket at the door. Only for Londoners !! Not easy for Scots and Northerners to take a day off on spec that they might get a ticket. I just feel the ticketing is ridiculously unfair and as a person who has taught sport all over the world and who recognises its value to people who often don't have much ( Seb Coe excepted ), I would expect all tickets to be sold and used and kids to be able to have a chance to go and watch. It is quite obvious that even the people in the immediate vicinity of the Olympic stadium feel totally excluded. I also am sick of Sports which don't need the Olympics being included to add a little more commercialism ( Tennis, football and next Olympics even Golf). Is the Olympics all about making as much profit as possible ? I hope not. Oh, and by the way, Duncan, yes the opening ceremony was great !
