Olympics Tax Hike

The good citizens of London are now realising that winning the right to host the 2012 Olympics is something of a poison chalice.

Aside from the disruption and chaos that the Games will bring, there is also the none too small matter of financing it.

It seems that those who pay council tax in London are going to see a rise of at least £33.80 in their council tax bills, in order for the Games to be adequately funded.

That is the result of Mayor Ken Livingstone's budget that was passed yesterday.
