Blair Predicts Fantastic Games

Prime Minister Tony Blair, whilst attending the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday, claimed that the London 2012 Olympics would be "fantastic".


"I think you can see from a stadium like this what it would be like in London. It would be fantastic."


"There can't be anything better than having an Olympic Games. Countries bid very fiercely for the right to host them and it is a great showcase for a country and a city.

You couldn't have a better advertisement for a country than to host a great sporting event and that is why we are pushing very strongly for Glasgow in 2014 (Commonwealth Games bid) and I think they have got a great chance actually

The trouble is that politicians try to use the Olympics as their own personal political memorial.
