Le Monde's quote about England from Romney's book:

"L'Angleterre est juste une petite île. Ses routes et ses maisons sont petites. A quelques exceptions près, elle ne fabrique pas des choses que les gens dans le reste du monde veulent acheter."

"pas de choses" ...Apparently, not even the seats at the Olympic Games, since now there's such a row over all those empty seats! "Who's got those seats? Why aren't they showing up?

More gaffes from all sides.

>>"Who's got those seats? Why aren't they showing up?<<

Mostly the international sports federations, it would seem, and they are being pressed to disgorge them in time for them to be made available to others.

BTW, can Mr. Romney point to anything he's made that other people wanted to buy?

he made a lot of dough when his Bain Vulture Capital owned Domino's pizza for several years - and yes many folks all around the world, including in dear ole London town, wanted to buy and eat it.

Romney's drivel about the UK is kind of like what he said about Michigan, his home state: "Here the trees are just about the right height" - now what the H does that mean?
