9pm: The show gets under way in front of an audience of about 62,000 in the stadium and one billion people watching worldwide.

The flame will be used to light the cauldron in the Olympic Park to mark the official opening of the Games.

Many of the event's contents have been kept a closely guarded secret, although it has been revealed the venue will be transformed into a meadow with real animals.

Meanwhile, the countdown clock in Trafalgar Square will reach zero at 9pm.

12am: The opening ceremony will conclude between midnight and 12.30am with a performance by Sir Paul McCartney.

It's worth remembering that when we won the Olympic bid, things were a lot different world economy wise, it's not like you can pull out of it so we may as well make the best of it.

The Olympics have not even broken even since the Mexico Olympics.
The cost since then have have only got bigger, and each one after the debt is larger than the one before.
Winning the Olympic bid when we did It was all ready known that it would leave a massive debt for the UK

oh your learning fast, i not going to be able to draw you in on this one.

but seriously, its crazy knowing that it will leave a country in debt that will take up to 30 years to pay off, to want to put in for it in the first place, Even the world cup is becoming like that now.

There are many pros and cons to it, too many to go into here, it won't do us any good just to shut up shop and let everyone else do it.

It might be the time now to set it up in one country and every country to put money into it.

Are you sure? I get the impression that there is an enormous amount of money changing hands and not all of it is going down the drain, if after the event you are proved to be right you can say I told you so! Quite frankly we have to grin and bear it and go along with the folly, you don't have to be miserable all of your life, take a holiday from your dudgeon and join in, never know you might enjoy some of it.

oh your learning fast, i not going to be able to draw you in on this one.

but seriously, its crazy knowing that it will leave a country in debt that will take up to 30 years to pay off, to want to put in for it in the first place, Even the world cup is becoming like that now.
There are many pros and cons to it, too many to go into here, it won't do us any good just to shut up shop and let everyone else do it.
It might be the time now to set it up in one country and every country to put money into it.

A brief glance at the first line of the report on the TJN in The Guardian shows that once again you fail to understand a subject before trying to use it to promote your own sad agenda. Do you ever actually try to understand something before putting your foot in it?

Just think that £13 Trillon in an English Bank having to pay tax on the interest, Would be more than enough to wipe out the Uk National Debt.
The guardian is pointing at the directions private deals in Western Africa which is nothing new.

I can quote from James Terry primary report, if you like, which is not finished at the moment, because he still chasing the paper trails, he says at the bottom it could reach as much as £20 Trillion from the UK 1%

Southy is absolutely right !
The Olympics are a waste of money and a waste of time.
A banker caused, flat broke nation such as ours, should never have bid for it, every nation that has held it has been left counting the cost.
All it does is to increase nationalism.
Just think how many homes, hospitals, schools, transport improvements, training opportunities, etc. that could have been created for the same money.
It will be a games for the multi- national companies to swell their profits and a shop window for millionaires and Royalty to parade themselves.
A far cry from the games of old, where true amateurs trained before and after doing a full shift in the office, factory or coal mine!
Wake me up when it's all over!

The short term view of things is easy because it doesn't require much thought, just reactionary comments.

Lets see if you can understand the difference between this offering ' over £13 Trillion hiden in Tax Free Countrys from 1% of the UK Population' and a report in The Guardian that stated this 'A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary £13 trillion ($21tn) of wealth offshore ' Oh dear but here's another of Henrys quotes 'He shows that at least £13tn – perhaps up to £20tn – has leaked out of scores of countries'.
As usual you read a few words that got you interested and made up the rest in your head as you pounded out your response in an attempt to appear informed. Failed once again, back to the bottom of the class. Spend an hour reading and attempt to understand what your subject matter is before even contemplating a reply unless you want to carry on looking foolish.

The Olympics are a waste of money and a waste of time.
A banker caused, flat broke nation such as ours, should never have bid for it, every nation that has held it has been left counting the cost.
All it does is to increase nationalism.
Just think how many homes, hospitals, schools, transport improvements, training opportunities, etc. that could have been created for the same money.
It will be a games for the multi- national companies to swell their profits and a shop window for millionaires and Royalty to parade themselves.
A far cry from the games of old, where true amateurs trained before and after doing a full shift in the office, factory or coal mine!
Wake me up when it's all over!

Winning the Olympic bid when we did It was all ready known that it would leave a massive debt for the UK[/p][/quote]Yep, anyone worth their salt knows all this already, your simply pointing out the obvious to bait the water perhaps.[/p][/quote]oh your learning fast, i not going to be able to draw you in on this one. but seriously, its crazy knowing that it will leave a country in debt that will take up to 30 years to pay off, to want to put in for it in the first place, Even the world cup is becoming like that now.[/p][/quote]There are many pros and cons to it, too many to go into here, it won't do us any good just to shut up shop and let everyone else do it.[/p][/quote]It might be the time now to set it up in one country and every country to put money into it. Just been talking to James Henry on Skype phone, if you know who he is.[/p][/quote]Yep, wish him and the Millwall team the best for next season for me.[/p][/quote]lol not that one, James Henry the Economist Historian who chases paper trails around the world, he part of the Tax Justice Network, he was chasing Cameron paper trail and came across a lot of Tax hiden money, over £13 Trillion hiden in Tax Free Countrys from 1% of the UK Population and thats on top of £750 Billion sitting in British Banks by big business and not being used to invest.[/p][/quote]A brief glance at the first line of the report on the TJN in The Guardian shows that once again you fail to understand a subject before trying to use it to promote your own sad agenda. Do you ever actually try to understand something before putting your foot in it?[/p][/quote]I am way ahead of you Torchie1, you might want to stick up for these people but I will not. its just self servering greed. And not many more will once Henry Publish. Just think that £13 Trillon in an English Bank having to pay tax on the interest, Would be more than enough to wipe out the Uk National Debt. The guardian is pointing at the directions private deals in Western Africa which is nothing new. I can quote from James Terry primary report, if you like, which is not finished at the moment, because he still chasing the paper trails, he says at the bottom it could reach as much as £20 Trillion from the UK 1%[/p][/quote]Lets see if you can understand the difference between this offering ' over £13 Trillion hiden in Tax Free Countrys from 1% of the UK Population' and a report in The Guardian that stated this 'A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary £13 trillion ($21tn) of wealth offshore ' Oh dear but here's another of Henrys quotes 'He shows that at least £13tn – perhaps up to £20tn – has leaked out of scores of countries'. As usual you read a few words that got you interested and made up the rest in your head as you pounded out your response in an attempt to appear informed. Failed once again, back to the bottom of the class. Spend an hour reading and attempt to understand what your subject matter is before even contemplating a reply unless you want to carry on looking foolish.[/p][/quote]Well, OK but how will it improve my Pension?[/p][/quote]It's only a theoretical essay designed to appeal to the Southys of this world. No-one will be asked to prove anything and there's no evidence to hold up, so I guess your pension will be down to you to sort out, just like the rest of us.[/p][/quote]Bother! It's a blooming minefield trying to find ways of cheating the system I was hoping for some help here. OSPREYSAINT

Any chance of Southy and Shoong talking to each other personally instead of boring the rest of us?
That goes for me and LH and the Iron Lady at times, but hey ho, we are still here!

Southy is absolutely right !
The Olympics are a waste of money and a waste of time.
A banker caused, flat broke nation such as ours, should never have bid for it, every nation that has held it has been left counting the cost.
All it does is to increase nationalism.
Just think how many homes, hospitals, schools, transport improvements, training opportunities, etc. that could have been created for the same money.
It will be a games for the multi- national companies to swell their profits and a shop window for millionaires and Royalty to parade themselves.
A far cry from the games of old, where true amateurs trained before and after doing a full shift in the office, factory or coal mine!
Wake me up when it's all over!
Just think that all of the money being spent on the Olympics is money not being spent on weapons of death and destruction!
