London has got it

I honestly never though that would excite as much, but wow!!! I just got a lump in my throat and I'm not a particularly sporty person! My kids will be old enough then to enjoy it so it's fab news!

SPARKLER1 Wed 06-Jul-05 12:53:22

Excellent stuff

Carameli Wed 06-Jul-05 12:54:07

I konw what you mean, I was unsure about whether or not I wanted it here but its brill and my dd will be old enough to really enjoy it. She will be 9 when it comes here so will really try to get to go to it at the time.

Great news!!

I'm suprisingly excited too It's so nice to have moments these days when you can be proud to be British.

After Mr Chiraq's comments about the Brits this week I can't help but feel a little smug that we beat Paris too.

Superb news

Carameli Wed 06-Jul-05 12:55:49

es, they were also just saying it will be great for Blair when he sees Chirac at the G8 later on:-):-)

almostanangel Wed 06-Jul-05 12:57:54

teeavee Wed 06-Jul-05 12:57:57

good news for london - but go easy on the JINGOISTIC ANTI-FRENCH NONSENSE, pleeeease - why do things like this bring out the worst in people?

almostanangel Wed 06-Jul-05 12:58:44

sorry but hahahahahahahahaha any way

Lizzylou Wed 06-Jul-05 12:58:49

Sorry Teavee....just in response to M Chirac's comments this week...........
He sort of set himself up for a fall, didn't he?

handlemecarefully Wed 06-Jul-05 12:58:58

Yes at least Chirac won't have to worry about dreadful British cuisine when he gets to Gleneagles....I bet he has lost his appetite...

nutcracker Wed 06-Jul-05 12:59:41

Wow theres a surprise (NOT)

handlemecarefully Wed 06-Jul-05 12:59:58


Chirac deserves it. Not all of the french nation of course, but I think it's morally imperative to villify Chirac

MissChief Wed 06-Jul-05 13:00:46

bloody brilliant! So pleased will- really help boost some forgotten parts of London which have loads of potential. Checked out house prices in Stratford anyone?!!

RTKangaMummy Wed 06-Jul-05 13:00:52

Sorry but it is funny

That he is coming over and will be eating British food

handlemecarefully Wed 06-Jul-05 13:01:21

On a more sober note, I shall spare a thought for those french mums everywhere currently posting their disappointment on the french equivalent of the Mumsnet talk boards...

almostanangel Wed 06-Jul-05 13:01:36
