No bread but circuses

It is hard to know what to say about Greece's decision to spend €100m on a motor racing circuit which would be suitable for Formula 1, particularly in the light of Singapore complaining that it was costing too much to run their own Grand Prix.

I suppose the disconnect between the politicians and reality has just reached massive proportions. When they are finally told they cannot be part of the F1 circus because they are too poor, there will remain this huge white elephant, a memorial to vanity and, no doubt, to corruption.
