Voting Crisis

The news this morning was filled with headlines like ‘Voting error’ gave London Games, and from the way people were talking it was as if there had been some great fraud to bring the olympics to London.

The reality is somewhat different. Reading the news item more carefully it actually transpires that in the third stage of the voting, one IOC member claimed he had voted for the wrong person, and on the assumption of how he would have voted had he not voted as he did, an IOC member is then predicting how the subsequent two votes would have gone. All in all a somewhat pointless exercise, as nobody is saying that the result of the vote should be reversed.

Anyone would have thought that it was so close to Christmas that there was no proper news…
