Olympics Ticketing Shambles Continues

 Last Friday I wrote the following about the Olympics online ticket system crashing:

"Locog has been forced to suspend part of the Olympics ticket resale process this morning, after the website crashed because of the high volumes of users seeking to sell or buy Games tickets.

Sellers of tickets, that they do not want, have been unable to upload their tickets to the site.

Locog do not know why this problem has arisen.

The system is meant to be back on line, and working properly, this afternoon.

Is it?"

One week on, and in answer to my own question, the site is still not working!

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has been forced to apologise for the shambles.

He is quoted by the BBC:

"We're working night and day to sort it out" and "apologise for the frustration that people feel.

We're going to get it right and make sure we get as many people as possible to the Games."

Not very impressive!
