Author Iain Sinclair, who is sceptical about the London project, explains his feelings about London 2012, and we'll be joined by the athlete-turned-ambassador who led London's bid, Lord Coe, the Welsh athlete Baroness Grey-Thompson, and writer Will Self, who has described the Olympics as a "running and jumping festival".
