After giving a commitment to host and fund the Comm. Games Dans Victoria has pulled the plug, apparently his brilliant costings were around 5 Billion out , that is if you actually believe him, who actually does, bother the Olympic and Comm Games Committees have come out and said his costings are grossly inflated, we all know that, Dans budget is utterly cooked the biggest debt in the nation growing wildly with % rates. 

Why book and event up and spruik it only to renege on it, say whatever you like about the actual event but to commit to it and they renege on it leaving athletes and communities that had planned for it in the lurch is embarrasing on the international stage. Its a third world stunt.

ZWe are currently spending a mint on the women's world cup and WA labor pay for events to come here, if you commit to something stick to it.

getting toward time to shelve them entirely - olympics every 4th year is enough

Commonwealth Games are a relic of the past and should be consigned to history.

what is the old saying in the pubs about knocking shops? It certainly applies here. The vics can't run football either; nor should they ask for federal monies to cover the rest of their bloody state debt in the future. The games are not a relic if he bidded for it in the first place. He is the worst propogandarist I have seen in Australian politics. Also, why does he think sport events make money?

That obviously appplies to the WAFL as well then.

Same thinking as the AFL chiefs on the state comps.

Yes, all this could get quite messy. What is going to happen to all the businesses that have contracts with the victorian state government? The business sector could end up in court cases with the state government which will add to the bad look. Apparently a feasibility study was done prior to the victorian bid and the high cost was well known, but they still went ahead.

Why not switch the Commonwealth games to the UK because the last ones were held there I think? All the infrastructure should still be there.

I just loved how the eastern states media immediately demanded that WA pick up the games as WA has all the money apparently. Typical ES bullshite, the only sensible decision Cooked has made so far was to not get involved. Imagine the clusterfuck it would have become if he was in charge, would end up like our hospital system.

He should hold a scaled down on in Melbourne, Apparently --the Guardian-- Birmingham was funded by London and the local council 75-25. Yes, Bazza, let us hope the political left never try to declare 'the Ashes' a relic, otherwise all bets are off, so to speak,
