Olympics Boost Tourism

The British government said that it believes that the 2012 London Olympics could boost Britain's tourist industry by 25%.

Culture secretary, Tessa Jowell, said that she believed that annual tourism revenue could rise from $130BN to $173BN by 2012.

However, that may require some serious work on the infrastructure; most notably the appalling public transport system in the UK.

Not that this will matter too much to the current government, as they will be out of office by 2012 anyway.
