  1. The main (and perhaps) sole reason is political post Brexit. Some sort of counterbalance to avoid the centralized influence of London, while BoJo consolidating the northern lines.
  2. Just a week after the event. Boring ceremony, but the last hour brings the excitement. Then "Parasite" became the first foreign language film to win Best Picture and South Korea became the second non anglophone to have a sole Best Picture winner (non co-production) after France (2011's "The Artist"). After the impact of K-Pop and Asian sports, now this. If only Pres. Moon drops North Korea and goes for a sole Seoul Summer Olympics.
  3. Beside that, the border is mixed between low infrasteucture and chemical exposure per Chernobyl
  4. If I need to pick the cities: -Los Angeles -New York City -Dallas -Atlanta -Boston -Washington D.C. -Kansas City -Miami -Seattle -San Jose With Philadelphia and Houston as alternatives.
  5. TBH, I think it's better doing the ceremonies in one sole stadium. So it's better that idea.
  6. Nah, if Almaty couldn't win with the "artificial snow", there's no way unless there's Braslov and Lviv.
  7. Just in case, the dimensions of the Randstad (I wrote it wrong before, sorry)
  8. Well, considering Netherlands is a small and urbanized country (one of the top 15 worldwide), and 70-75% of the population lived in the Randstaat limits (The megalopolis comprised of the 4 majors cities and subsidiaries) it's not exactly far fetched. Like Stefan mentioned, the cities are within 90 minutes maximum each other. Actually an Olympic bid of the Randstaat would be like the Rhine-Ruhr mentioned before for Germany, but more compact and better developed to be honests.
  9. Yes, the bid is Barcelona Winter Olympics (Madrid doesn't have mountains close of the city). The Catalonian government made a proper bid. Now the question is about the preferences and political will related to both cities.
  10. Going per numbers, Brazzaville is not exactly "worse" than Dakar to be honests. At least Brazzaville has a minimal sense of order (Not like Kinshasa). Anyway, I still wonder why Morocco or Botswana hadn't raise hand to this now.
  11. The last time I revise geography, that was Barcelona NOT Madrid, and considering the recent political swift... Probably Madrid 2032 will fight against the Catalonians (again).
  12. I said before and I will repeat. If South Korea was alone, right now I would put Seoul as favourite (regarding Brisbane, Madrid or any other). Seoul has almost anything on board, the political will is there and infrastructure on first level. But joining Pyongyang?
  13. Interesting, even with the menace of a potential crash, currently the financial lines of Spain (in macroeconomic aspects) look much better this time than in 2009 (And even better comparing Italy, which has a stagnant economy but still will host the Winter Olympics). And reading news about it, this time, the main football clubs of Madrid seemed to have more involvement in the bid, which can be solved some $$ and logistics aspects. The question is about the political line considering the current Parliament... But then, if this works in Italy with full antagonic parties...
  14. However her party has in some polls 13% of vote share and more recently I read some grassroot opposition on social network, citing Gold Coast 2018 as a clear no.
