|Finger trouble at the OIC|
Just as real men hate hearing 'is it in?', they also hate having to say
'I was wrong'. It takes a big man to do this, but this blogger is big enough to
rise to the occasion and admit it.
Previously this blogger claimed that London won the
2012 Olympics through a bidding war with the other candidates. It is
generally recognized that the government who pays the highest bribes to the
International Olympic Committee (IOC) wins the right to host the Olympics.
But it seems that on this occasion the race did not go to the swift, nor
the fight to the strong. London was an accident!
Everyone's ABC reports:
A senior Olympic official is claiming London only won the right to host the
2012 Olympics because an International Olympic Committee (IOC) member pressed
the wrong button and voted for the wrong country.
As much as it feels good to point out that the corruption of the IOC is
surpassed only the United Nations, it sometimes pays to take your own advice:
Never attribute to corruption that which can be attributed to pure incompetence.
