Londoners May Get Stiffed With Olympic Bill

It seems that there is some doubt as to whether the government will pick up the tab for any cost overruns for the 2012 London Olympics, this would mean that Londoners would get stiffed with the bill.

The issue was given prominence by Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, on the BBC's Radio 4 Today programme.

Mr Johnson said:

"There is a dispute at the moment between the GLA and the mayoralty and the government about who is up for the over-runs in so far as they may or may not occur.

The details of this deal are from clear.

What I want to do is to make sure there are no over-runs

Whether the government picks up the tab, or Londoners do, it will still be the taxpayer that foots the bill.
