Praise be?

  • Comment

One of the most noticeable aspects of the whole event was the number of Brits wandering around Cannes sporting lapel badges backing London's bid for the 2012 Olympics. It was also one of the most discussed conversation topics of the whole bash. That and the surprise demise of estate agent Chesterton. A side effect of this pro-London euphoria was the praise delegates lavished on the French strikers who so successfully disrupted the International Olympic Committee's inspection of the Paris bid last week. Surely there are no other circumstances where such a hardened group of capitalists would be heard singing the praises of the strength of France's Communist left?
