What is Seb Coe on about? I thought the Olympics in London was an opportunity to display British products and way of life. Then I hear that the Olympic bell is to be made in Holland. It might be a contract thing but would any other country allow this to happen? Can you imagine the Americans, French, the `Germans or the Dutch allowing this to happen? If the bell foundry in London could not do the job they should have given it ti Taylors of Loughborough. In addition, the main sponsors are American and the Olympic village is to be run by an American company.
IT IS A JOKE BESIDES BEING AN OPPORTUNITY MISSED.
But I suppose this is not new. There is the trains going to a German Company. We are going to get a great many wind farms but the turbines are made by a non British Company.
Is it a case of us playing by the rules while everybody else finds ways round the rules?
