  1. What are members’ view on continuing with the Commonwealth Games? Do you think it‘S the moment to call time on them, or do you think they still ave a purpose for continuing on? Personally, as someone who has long had a fondness for the “Commies”, and has defended them often in the past, it’s with sadness and regret that I think it’s a highly appropriate time to discontinue them. At a time when two prospective hosts in a row have abandoned them and the CGF is having difficulty finding future hosts, I feel it’s pretty clear that the cost to benefits ratio has fallen dramatically. They don’t make commercial sense. They’ve always been an anomaly on the crowded sporting calendar, but I think have become even more irrelevant as major “stars” skip the games in favour of world championships etc. I believe the Commonwealth itself has lost a lot of prestige, and indeed the legacy of colonialism has become more of a problematic issue than a uniting factor. Whatever ones thoughts on the monarchy, I think Queen Elizabeth II was regarded with great respect, and the games were closely associated with her. King Charles I do not think engenders the same affection, at least not outside the UK. As we approach the 100th anniversary of the games, I think it’s an appropriate time to let them go. Perhaps with one final celebration to send them off with a bang and an acknowledgement.
  2. Commonwealth Games Federation selects Birmingham as Host City Partner of the 2022 Commonwealth Games The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) today announced that it has selected Birmingham, England as the host city partner of the XXII Commonwealth Games in 2022. At a special Media Conference staged at the Arena Academy school in Birmingham, CGF President Louise Martin CBE applauded the city’s ambitious and innovative vision to engage and benefit its local community, showcase the best of global Britain and warmly welcome and inspire athletes and fans from right across the Commonwealth. Birmingham 2022, which is expected to take place from 27 July – 7 August 2022, marks 20 years since Manchester 2002, the last time the Games were held in England. http://mailchi.mp/thecgf/commonwealth-games-federation-selects-birmingham-as-host-city-partner-of-the-2022-commonwealth-games
