Tourism To Fall

Despite the recent hype from Visa (predicting an alleged financial benefit to the economy from the 2012 Olympics), more realistic views are that the economy will take a negative hit as tourism will in fact fall.

The Independent reports that London & Partners (the official agency behind promoting tourism for London) has admitted that the 2012 Olympic Games could lead to a fall in visitors to London 2012.

For why?

People do not want to come to a city with over-crowded transport, a lack of/high prices for hotel rooms, and which resembles a building site.

Who blames them for not wanting to come?
