See thisislondon.co.uk/lite D izzee Rascal has attacked the 2012 Olympics for turning the area around where he grew up into a big building hole, but then the rappers recollec- tion of stratford does not match mine. it was always an industrial site domi- nated by the old rail works and the freight depot. The Games can bring prosperity and character to the area, especially if the post-Olympics use for the site is carefully managed. BJ, London The Olympics are the best thing to hap- pen to east london in a long time. i am getting so sick of these killjoys. You wait and see, come 2012 Dizzee will be clamber- ing to be seen as an east london celeb. KH, London i lOVe Dizzees music and it turns out hed make a great politician too. Regeneration is just a euphemism for building shops and planting trees. if the Olympics do regenerate the area locals will have to move elsewhere because they wont be able to afford it any more. The problems arent solved, theyre displaced. Christine, CM14 NeVeR heard of Mr Rascal before but hes absolutely right. i dare say therell be a brief period when the presence of new build- i n g s w i l l improve the place, but the danger is it will be run down into a vast, deprived area. still, it could have been a lot worse -- they couldve put 2012 in south london! Sarah Bradshaw, Enfield iVe lived in stratford for 17 years. ill never forget the first time arriv- ing at the old bus station and think- ing what a hellhole. however, its since changed. Theres a lot of commitment to improve the area. Alan, London The east of london has just always been one big hole, f r a n k l y, a n d thats why it needs the Olympic Games to regenerate it. isnt everyone getting a bit fed up with people like Dizzee Rascal who cant see beyond the end of their own nose?
