A Jolly Junket To A Winter Wonderland

I see that the London Olympics organisers are sending a delegation to Vancouver for the Winter Games next week, on a fact finding mission.

They want to learn all the "learnable" about the issues, pitfalls and "opportunities" arising from hosting an Olympics.

Three small points:

1 They have already done this at the Beijing Olympics.

2 They are sending a massive delegation of 50 people (I wonder that that will cost the British taxpayer?). Why so many?

3 The Canadian infrastructure budget was originally £350M, it is now expected to rise to almost £3.5BN. Do we really want to follow Canada's example?

This junket seems to be a remarkable waste of our money.
