We won because our presentation was better.
The french brough over a load of old middle class, stuffy men, in suits, and sat there proclaiming how great Paris is, and that it is spotless, with
no poor areas.
The london team brought over school children (biggest foregn student population_, and an etnically diverse contignent. With represents london. Its
clear we had far more enthusiasm for it, we wanted it, and in the back of our minds, we thought we could pip Paris to it.. I watched the presentation
on the day before the london bombings, and it had me in tears, just as it did to dear ole Ken.
We admitted that parts of our city (East end) were delapidated, and never recovered from the luftwaffer levelling the area due to all of the strategic
shipping and factory targets in the area. France didn't. They had an arrogance about them. We showed off the whole of our city, because we are proud
of it. From the elegant townhouses of Kensignton to the Tower blocks of poplar.
Food in London is brilliant. You can even get french food in London. There are thousands of restraunts. India, Chinese, Taiwanees, Korean, Japanese,
Thai, British, Sri Lankan..............the list goes on.
One theory that could be valid. Many experts now admint that London is the financial epicenter of the world. Sure New York is the main financial city
of America. But to deal with the rest of the world, everything goes through London, not only due to the world time system (GMT, london can trade with
New York, Paris, Frankfurt and Tokoyo in the same day) but also our links with the commonwealth, Hong Kong, India etc. Salaries in London are higher
than New York, London is the place to be for the merchant and investment bankers. London also controls much of the Copper, Gold, Metal and other
speculative markets, with a huge majority share. There are more Hedge funds in London than anywhere else, and more money is traded in London than New
York and Tokoyo combined.
The Olympics in London will no doubt strengthern london as the leading financial city. Some claim that London is NWO central. Home to the House of
Windsor, the first masonic lodge, Chatham house, Temple Bar, Bank of England, Rothschild subsidiaries. Major Oil and Petroleum, exchange etc etc Did
they win it for London? They might of helped, but we wouldn't of even come close without the efforts of Lord Coe and his team, the support of the
major and the government.
