They do have skinny little fries which may be made from potato, but McD do not have anything which a Brit would recognise as a chip.

Come to London, and eat foreign junk food and drink foreign fizzy(?) beer at inflated prices. Oh, and you can only pay for them with one flavour of credit card when many locals have the other flavour in their wallet.

My only consolation is that marketing experts seem to agree that this is all a massive own goal by the sponsors, who have paid millions of pounds to be ridiculed by the host nation.
So the world economy uses your land and expects you to flip the bill for the structures and infastructure required to safely host such a spectical so they can promote foreign services. Can't even promote domestic beer? Don't tell me they pushed the slop-n-foam crap watered down suds they sell here in the US! Sounds like a typical gov service job to me. I wonder how much extra 'infastructure' will remain after the spectical?.....
Artical.
