We have had an underground railway system in London since 1863 and still it does not work properly! Every day, without fail, parts of it are 'broken' causing delay, anguish and costing money.
As a tax and council tax payer I am dreading the cost of the stupid Olympics. I am of the Kate Hoey school in this respect and that is to say Paris should have won. I am praying that Boris will get the whole shambles under a vice-like financial control and if need be, restraint.
FWIW, I travel past the site at least 6 times a week. To casual inspection there has been massive activity over the last 18 months. I read somewhere that the Stadium will be ready at least 18 months early so they can hold a series of test events in advance of the opening.
