2012 Olympics: Shove It

Not much to add to Old Holborn’s missive on the matter.
A complete waste of public money on an anachronistic clusterfuck.
If it was worth doing, it’d be viable as a private venture, like football, or F1, for example.

If you want to rejuvenate parts of London, just go and rejuvenate them. Even allowing for the grotesque inefficiencies of the public sector, you should be able to build 100,000 units of affordable housing for the cost of hosting the Olympics. They’d be very affordable indeed, because you could give them away and still spend less than is being wasted on the 2012 games.
