So that is one victory then:-) The Olympic decision is a victory for
the construction industry and big business, but me and most of my
friends, and everyone living at Clays Lane housing co-op (which will
probably now be bulldozed), were opposed to the Olympics coming to

I was trapped inside the rural convergence space in Stirling when I
heard the depressing news about the Olympic decision. I wish I had
also heard about the patent decision, it would have been some
consolation and taken my mind off the thousands of riot cops laying
siege to the campsite.
