Five years to go and counting…

It is five years today to when the Olympic torch will be lit in the stadium in Stratford, Steven Downes writes.

Lord Coe’s latest column in the Telegraph appears here today.

And did anyone see the BBC London debate on TV last night? If you missed it, it is here.

I was struck by the extremely shallow and ill-formed nature of the “debate” – maybe that is inevitable if you have Andrew Neil hosting it – you could even sense Coe’s frustration when he was prevented from addressing one question.

But were any of the real issues really discussed?
