You're Shittin' Me!
Surely this is some sort of ridiculous joke.
We do not need the Olympics in Melbourne and I for one certainly don't want them.
Although I love sport and there are always some incredible individual achievements that occur during the games, the amount spent on the opening and closing ceremonies is surely the BIGGEST waste of money that occurs over any four year period on Earth, it causes major inconvenience for locals and hosting the games is nothing more than a big, throbbing cock for the premier and lord mayor. No city profits from hosting the Olympics. We had the retarded and pointless Commonwealth Games just recently, Sydney had the Olympics in 2000 (Sydney's in the same country as Melbourne) and we (Melbourne) had them back in '56. Once a century is more than enough thanks very much. Not in my back yard. Fuck off.
Oh, and no excuses like 'but it will improve our public transport infrastructure'. That needs to be done anyway, and right NOW, Kosky/Brumby you fucking nincompoops.
