As Sheldon Baker on Slugger gleefully reports two of the great European cycling events will start in the UK (sic) in 2014. The Giro d’Italia will start in Belfast before making its letsgetalongerist way to Dublin.
Hooray. We all like a Giro……..its green and white and gets you drunk. But Im losing track here.
We have the UK (as Sheldon and Dimbleby might say) City of Culture in Derry (or Londonderry as Sheldon and Dimbleby might say). We have the G8 Summmit. We have the World Police and Fire Games.
Is there no end to this good news? Why are we so damned lucky?
We get a Circus. We get no Bread.
Who is actually paying for this? Who is making money out of this?
