I understand this. But people here seem to have seen that they'll be making
up a financial plan for the event, then announcing that there is no raw
passion underneath the money. I'm just telling you that there are a *lot* of
very active and very passionate Wikimedians in the UK looking to make the
best possible event.
Also remembering that Brits are all tightfisted, of course, so they'll not
be silly with their money ;)
(Also, James, my apologies for the assumption. I wonder if WMUK will be
able to negotiate such a discount...)

To be honest I'm rather offended that the UK

it's still 2014. I agree with you, but London
is far from the cheapest
in the world, as I'm sure you're aware -
money will be required.
from my experience on the Wikimania Jury I can assure you that it is
pretty much taken into account how much Wikimania experience the bidding
team has and how much the understand to make a Wikimania as Wikimania is.
