Summer Olympics: London 2012 discussion

Recommended Posts

I was having a discussion with my sister about which language London would use.

'Cause at the Olympics its French, English and the language of the host country. We thought the third would be Cockney. :p

Cockney isn't even a language. :p

Obviously the Olympics will use French, as it is the official language of the Olympics (being as the French are responsible for the modern games).

Unfortunately.

Should be interesting though, seeing as the English and French are as bad as eachother when it comes to using foreign languages :p

I look forward to talking in this thread for the next four years. :p

See, I knew it would be handy ;)

A load of people are already complaining that it looks rubbish compared to Beijing's. But to be fair, if this country spent as much on the Games as China did, there would be a public uproar over that too.

So London 2012 can't really win... democracy in action!

Went nuts with the Olympics being this display of national pride or whatever.

Oh I thought you meant went nuts spending loads of money on it and nobody cared, or the Chinese people objected to the amount of money being spent.. and nobody cared. :p

It's pretty obvious that people did care because of, you know, all the people who watched the thing.

You're just generalizing everyone because you didn't care. :p
