Just a quick one, happened upon this lovely video for London’s bid for the 2018 World Cup. It almost makes me homesick it’s so good, even considering the only bit of green space is Primrose Hill (at around 1:20).

It’s also specially lovely when you consider that they have two stadiums (Wembley and the Emirates) which are absolute shoe-ins for selection of the final 12 and are therefore unlikely to be awarded the other. Anyway, some more local cities are also bidding to be host cities and given the amount of stick I would get if I didnt here are the link to Leeds, Sheffield and Hull‘s bid efforts.
