This Friday, the spotlight is on London for the Virgin 2010 London Marathon. [I thought it was the Flora London Marathon… Must have run out of money]
This year is set for a scorcher… by UK standards, at a balmy 22 °C, lets hope that none of the runners get heatstroke now (!)
Now follows the all knowing Wikipedia, with its weekly quote:
The London Marathon is a road marathon that has been held each year in London since 1981, usually in April. The race is currently sponsored by Virgin Money, as the Virgin London Marathon. Previously the event was sponsored by Flora (from 1996 to 2009) . The 2010 London Marathon will be held on Sunday 25 April.
This week is the place that all the parties are tying to get their hands on; 10 Downing Street
Everyone knows this is the official residence of the Prime Minster of the United Kingdom and has been for many years. Don’t forget to vote for the most sutible person for the job, more on this later when I have a bit more time. Keep 6th May in your diaries!
And of course one cannot forget this weeks mandatory Wikiquote:
10 Downing Street (Colloquially known in the United Kingdom as “Number 10”) is the official residence and office of the First Lord of the Treasury and hence Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. The headquarters of Her Majesty’s Government, it is situated on Downing Street in the City of Westminster in London.
