and not to be one who goes against the grain, it would probably have pished doon the whole of 2018 anyway...


Quite. See also similar rants (not here) about how money spent on public art could be used to fund some old biddy's hip replacement.

It's a disappointment, but I don't think it was a fuck up. It's one of those things - someone has to win, and the others lose out. Do we think Medellin also fucked up their bid? Or could it be that Buenos Aires was just a better option? There's no shame in losing out to a better candidate in my mind. Maybe if the bid had come after the Commonwealth Games, we might have had a better footing, who knows.
