Opposition To 2012 Olympics Grows

A YouGov survey for the TaxPayers' Alliance has identified that almost 66% of the British public are opposed to the ever rising costs of the London 2012 Olympics.

They wish to see the £12BN spent on more worthwhile concepts, such as tax cuts or public services.

Needless to say, very few people (3% to be precise) actually believe that the government is able to deliver the Games within its existing budget.

Current estimates for the budget are now running at £15BN, for what it is worth my estimate is £20BN.

Never allow politicians anywhere near long term complex projects such as IT systems, construction or the Olympics.
