CITY VIEWS: IS IT RIGHT THAT MCDONALD'S WILL BE THE ONLY FOOD SPONSOR AT THE OLYMPICS ?

<strong>GEORGE WILLIAMSON </strong> WELBECK GROUP<br />&ldquo;Absolutely ridiculous. The whole ethos for the Olympics is a sporting and healthy environment. To restrict all branding of food to McDonald&rsquo;s is too much. This is our Olympics and we should want to give it a British feel, not one of a world wide franchise.&rdquo;<br /><strong><br />NICHOLAS YIALONITES </strong> NEW YORK EXCHANGE<br />&ldquo;It&rsquo;s not good is it? It would look seriously bad on us if all you could see was McDonald&rsquo;s. It would make the English look like a load of fat slobs. The government should try and involve local businesses and get them out there for the public to see.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>ALAN REDWOOD </strong>HSBC<br />&ldquo;McDonald&rsquo;s is not exactly a chain that you associate with athletics is it? If McDonald&rsquo;s is trying to promote healthier food, to change their image, then I admire their business sense. Personally speaking I think it is totally the wrong brand for the Olympics.&rdquo;
