Ticket Reallocation

I have some good news and some bad news about tickets for next year's Olympic Games.

First the good news...

A dozen London boroughs did not to take up their free ticket allocation, on the grounds that they did not want paying members of the public to be deprived of a chance to see the games.

Now the bad news..

The tickets that were not taken up have not been put back into the "pot" for purchase by the public, but have in fact been reallocated for free to politicians at Newham, Barking and Dagenham, Greenwich, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest.

For those of you interested in statistics, a grand total of 14,000 tickets have been set aside for government officials while two in three public applicants failed to secure any of their ticket order.

Good isn't it?
