The cluster fuck that is the 2020... I mean 2021 Olympics (General)

That's an interesting analysis.

According to the IOC's website, John Coates has been involved with the AOC (Aus Olympic Com) then the IOC since 1982 - so that's 40 years.

I've mentioned before about my dear old Mum - she was by no means a political radical but she would rail against the IOC being a corrupt gravy train - that was 30-40 years ago.

If you're looking for a template for how world bodies like WHO or the UN went bad, then the IOC is it.

Highly-paid, privileged elites traveling the world - being wined and dined by government elites - doing mega-deals on TV rights.

You won't be surprised to know that Coates is currently the Delegate Member for Broadcast Rights. (2015-)

He's also:

Chair, Agenda 2020/New Normal Olympic Games Delivery Executive Steering Committee

New Normal Delivery Steering Committee!

I'm actually all for a 'new normal' (different from the new normal) - we need to break things down, weed out corruption, rebuild.

Coates 'new normal' is simply the 'old normal' - but with even more power centralized in their greedy hands.
