    And now this:

    "The European Judo Union has come to the realisation that the British Judo Association does not fit the EJU criteria to host the EJU flagship event.

    The BJA had entered into a sponsorship agreement which did not meet the EJU values. BJA persisted in this, notwithstanding that it had been warned on a number of occasions that this arrangement was unacceptable to the EJU, which has a right under the event contract to approve or disapprove any sponsorships of EJU events.

    In their several e-mails and telephone conversations the BJA refereed to a loss of funding. In addition, the BJA missed the agreed deadline to pay the event license fee, which is also a breach of contract.

    Taking all of the above into consideration, and given the limited time to the staging of the European Championships, in order to protect the interests of the EJU national federations and European judoka, EJU Executive Committee have unanimously taken the decision to withdraw the event from Glasgow and designate as quickly as possible an alternative host who is willing and able to stage these continental judo championships.

    Having informed the BJA regarding the termination of the Contract, the EJU has begun negotiations with alternative potential organisers. The EJU EC are confident that the best possible solution will be found in the shortest possible time. Further information setting out the change to the staging of the European Championships will be published after the end of negotiations."

    I know this is slightly off topic but what on earth is this hideous neon tatami for?
