Which places do you want to see?
The Olympic flame will travel 8,000 miles during its 70-day tour of the UK, on its way passing some of the most stunningly beautiful places that England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have to offer. Here are just 20 scenic spots we think are well worth a visit...

I usually enjoy watching the olympics...But, this year i'm not looking forward to them at all.
Where ever they've been held in the past we hear about all the wonderful things being planned for the opening ceremony and during the games. China rehearsed for 2 years ... anyone know what's happening at our opening ceremony ???
What do we hear about the 2012 games ?
Mostly negative things ie the debacle over buying tickets ....how the London transport system will grind to a halt, so civil servants have been asked to work from home. Nice for them, watch tv all day at our expense, how against our wishes we have been forced to let drug cheats represent GB, etc etc etc
So, all I can say about the 2012 Olympics is ..... Roll on September !!!

Jim Rogers - Beckham is involved for the same reason he does anything, from get out of bed in the morning to putting on his trousers and appearing at the Olympics - because that pushy stick insect wife of his made him do it. He probably doesn't even know what the Olympics are, if it's not kicking a ball he doesn't get it.
Just my opinion obviously but it makes me so mad to see him and Boris swanning around in Athens picking up the torch to start off these games that no-one asked us if we wanted to pay for!
THINK ABOUT IT.
MSN travel, does she know some of us haven't got our bus fare to work.
This thread shows what a class ridden society we live in.
we listened to our politicians, we picked who we thought were the best party to run our country, it is government who have pissed on the parade not the people so much, yes people in this country are greedy they do want a lot , but did you not listen when ore politician's one by one took a stand on the soap box and made promises and then as soon as they got into power pull the rug, I blame the government, we have people in this country living off hand out's,living in soup kitchen's. do you have a job do you have to think about what comes first paying to get back and forward work every day or eating that's what it has come to for a hell of a lot of people
what a waste of money the olypics , costs so far 9 BILLION , all police leave has been cancelled during th e olympics , all for a few atheletes trying to win a gold medal to increase there own salarys !! .This government is corrupt as any other country in the world .
The government continues raising taxes on everything , but is able to afford to spend so much money on this event. the only legacy the olypic games will create is DEBT , and it will be the general public who will have to foot the bill for this .
This event will not increase tourism in fact it will detour tourists from visiting as all prices will double in London ie , hotels , flights , etc.
I believe the opening ceremony alone is costing 84 MILLION !!!!!
I will not be going to waste my time to watch the "flame " being paraded around the country , as i have far better things to do ie , cut the grass , hoover the carpets ,watch my laundry going around in my washing machine , so much more interesting !!!!!!
perhaps i will just book a holiday as far away as possible and then return when it is all over .
