London 2012 Organising Committee is being given a hard time (with a fair amount of criticism for the Government as well). See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/other_sports/olympics_2012/6289045.stm My question is: Do you think the cost of the Games is worth it? In my view it is worth every penny. I have a good degree of confidence in Seb Coe and his team, who are hugely committed. The key problem is the Government, who are stumping up a paltry sum in terms of capital costs. As usual Gordon Brown hates anyone doing anything fun. The Games will inspire young people and will be fantastic for the UK tourist industry (not just London's). It will regenerate much of East London. It is already having an impact on train links. The money spent by visitors etc will be in the tens if not hundreds of millions of pounds. Even Athens came out of the experience well. What do you think? You decide!
