Former PM Tony Blair Says Despite The Cost, Games Are Good For London
Published July 27, 2012
ROMNEY MEETING: In London, Prince & Kirkup wrote U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney had an hour-long meeting with Cameron and said: “I expect the Games to be highly successful." The men seemed "to have got on well during their talks," despite Cameron's remark earlier about Romney’s concerns about the capital’s preparedness for the Games. Cameron pointed out the London Games were taking place in a busy city rather than “the middle of nowhere” – widely seen as a reference to the '02 Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah, which Romney organized. Earlier, speaking in front of the main Olympic stadium, Cameron said: “You’re going to see beyond doubt that Britain can deliver. This is a time of some economic difficulty for the U.K. but look at what we are capable of achieving as nation even at a difficult economic time. This is not a London Games, this is not an England Games, this a United Kingdom Games" (TELEGRAPH, 7/26).
