Let's Hope the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Give London 2012 a Run For Its Money

The Games have been more than eight years in the making, beginning with the 2006 bid and only succeeding because of the hard work, support and patience of thousands of volunteers, organisers and residents. And there's a great deal of hard work still ahead, with some 15,000 Clyde-siders (the name given to the Commonwealth volunteers) selflessly giving up their time to help ensure things run smoothly. The Commonwealth Games will hopefully be some light relief (for politicians and the public!) from the referendum debate, and the vote that will happen on 18 September.
