Glasgow won the bid for the Commonwealth games today. Nigeria was the loosing side which I find a terrible pity. Africa has never hosted the games and considering that London has the Olympic games in 2012 maybe it would have been fairer to let Nigeria see what she could do. Still, it means jobs and investment for Scotland as well as increased tourism during the games. However, with the mess over the Scottish Parliament building going massively over budget I dread to think what kind of mess Glasgow will get into.
