The Independent: Better late than never for the Olympics

Dear Independent,

Your relentlessly negative approach to the Olympics several months ago was a major reason I stopped reading your paper. Having just read today’s edition, I start to believe in the ability of the games to transform things for the better. Perhaps this is one of the regeneration benefits we were promised?

As a volunteer for the games, reading your constant sniping was depressing to say the least. Your almost biblical conversion (which cynics might dismiss as a belated attempt at following the public mood) to a pro-games stance is gratifying to witness for those of us who had more faith in this country’s ability to deliver.

Please be more positive next time.
