lula, does the public support the bid for the Olympic games given the economic situation?

Given it would be the third try, my guess is that in case they get seriously, it could be a certainty that Madrid will finally be awarded the games.

Duke, I do not follow much the topic, there are sectors that are against, but there is not a great controversy. From what I've read is quite austere budget and much of the infrastructure are already built. They probably think that eventually the economic benefits will outweigh the costs.

Thanks, I think it would be a good thing to see the Games in Madrid.

Where is Spain intending on getting the extra billions of dollars/euros needed to pay for an Olympic Games? I would have thought the Spanish government could have found a better use for any extra euros they may get their hands on , including paying down their debt.
Is the idea of hosting another Olympic Games even a popular idea in Spain?

See post #216, lula has answered this question before.

By the way, will Felipe attend the Handball final today? That would be interesting to see since Inaki will be there for sure and as former team captain who has led the team to lots of success incl Olympic Medals, he would be seated in the VIP area similar to Felipe.

In Handball circles, Inaki is still a hero

Prince of Asturias is the Honorary President of the World Championship, and Spain is in the final ... it is his duty to be there. He will be in the authorities box with Princess Mary and politicians.

Iñaki, if he goes, will be seated elsewhere probably with his children (if children are present people do not insult him). Yesterday the Royal House left more than clear his position on it. It's stupid to go, hopefully he will not do anything more stupid.

I bet if Inaki shows up, he will be seated outsite the photographic range of Prince Felipe. Still, its a farce.

Inaki has visited all games so far (I think), why would be miss the final.
