250,000 Miss Out On Olympic Tickets

Those of you who applied for tickets for the London 2012 Olympics, but who failed to get any (estimated by the Telegraph at being around 250,000) may take some comfort in the fact that neither Boris Johnson (Mayor of London) nor Jeremy Hunt, the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport appear to have been allocated any either.

However, it is quite likely that these two gentlemen will be able to attend the games; as the government has applied for 9,000 tickets (for VIPs and civil servants) and local authorities have also been allowed to buy tickets (outwith the ballot, using taxpayers' money)

Did Locog not tell these queue jumpers that the daft ticket ballot procedure that they designed was meant to be fair?
