Olympic Venue: Solved!

Every 4 years we get the same tedious faff about where the Olympics is going to be.

Result is much wrangling followed by construction at great expense and disruption of a stadium which might never be used afterwards.

There is a simple solution.

The international community should get together and buy Cyprus.

Cyprus would be a perfect permanent venue.

 It has a pleasant mediterranean climate, is a handy size and is located not far from the original site of the Olympics.

It would also sort out the problem of the Greek-Turkish divide.

As a bonus, and for increased efficiency, we could hold the World Cup there as well.
