Michael Pavitt: Commonwealth Games Federation relying on marriage of convenience with Durban 2022

The last thing I expected when being driven back to Durban’s King Shaka airport following the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) Evaluation Commission’s four-day visit was to be questioned by my taxi driver about the political situation in Britain, ahead of the country’s General Election on Thursday (May 7).

After providing an over-complicated run-down of how Britain’s political system works, I explained that when the ballot papers are counted and a result is announced it is anticipated another coalition Government will form, with either David Cameron or Ed Miliband in charge.

Effectively a marriage of convenience.
