Like you haven’t had enough of the Olympic hype already news is out that the Olympic torch is to be taken on a cable car ride over Matlock Bath during the Derbyshire leg of its nationwide relay in the build-up to London 2012.
A torchbearer will carry the flame on to the famous sky-ride at the Heights of Abraham on 29 June.
Derby City Council said it was planning a major celebration to mark the torch’s overnight stay in the city. Cost to who please?
The 70-day relay begins at Land’s End, Cornwall, on 19 May and arrives at the
Olympic opening ceremony in London on 27 July.
The amazing thing is that certain people seem to think that the arrival of the torch to this area will attract people into the area to join in the celebrations. Come on please get a grip and stop this stupidity and waste of money.
