The Olympics are going to be Hell.
Nobody gives a toss about the poor Londoners who's lives and livelihoods are going to be destroyed, book a holiday and move out for the duration.
Try not to cry when you see the damage and the tax bill when you get home.
I am looking forward to it...yes its going to be more expensive than predicted and yes there will be some travel chaos....but as a global spectacular event you can't beat it. And whilst not sports mad I did get some tickets in the first round and didn't moan when I only got the least likey event that I applied for....demand was staggering for some of the blue ribband events and people couldn't understand why they didn't get anything for them??? And yes there are a lot of corporate sponsor tickets held back but they are contibuting huge sums to get this going. And finally a whole load of things have been built, including housing for those who have problems getting on the private housing ladder, as well as all the sports facilities and upgrades to the city itself, which would never have happened otherwise. Yes some of the money could have been spent on some more nurses or something so worthy but there has to be a balance in life...shall we shut all the museums and sell off their contents...how dull life would be if that kind of thinking was prevalent.
