We're the first to own up to a shaggy rather than sharply delineated definition of London. Windsor's been mentioned. London Gatwick is really Sussex but we don't mind. Ebbsfleet is pushing it, but they're getting a big horse. However, Calais, in our book, is definitely France. Not even in the country. So news today of it's spunky "Mission 2012" attempts to insinuate itself into Britain for the London Olympics has got our eyebrows raised. However, we're also having to suppress glee that a Calais councillor has come out and said, in respect of Paris' failed bid: "Don't tell anyone, but I always thought London was better for us."
