From the Telegraph:
"... But there was one person in the stadium who found it an uncomfortable night after being roundly booed as he rose to make the opening speech during the formal part of the proceedings.
“India is ready,” proclaimed the hapless chairman of the Games organising committee, Suresh Kalmadi, adding: “There have been many challenges but we have been able to rise above them all.”
The hostile reaction from spectators, prompting a quizzical look from the Prince of Wales, showed exactly what they thought of such crowing.
What completely puzzles me about all this complaining is that if the conditions are as bad as the "Commonwealth press" say they are, then why did their respective countries send their teams or allow them to stay at the athlete's village in the first place? What the Telegraph fails to report is that the Australian team expressed satisfaction with the games as reported by IBN Live.
(Did you know that the Prince of Wales believes in homeopathy?)
