Is it too late to call Paris over the LondonOlympics bill?

by | 30th, January 2012

WHAT joy eh, yet another rise in the bill for the Olympics :

The true cost of the London 2012 Games for the UK taxpayer comes in at over £12 billion, £2.7 bn more than the 9.3bn budget, a Sky investigation has revealed.

And yes, that is 6 times the number the lying scum told us it would be before they bid for the damn foolery. Jeebus, do we really need to pay £12 billion to give athletes a drugs and sex jamboree?

But note that this isn’t the full number either. In fact, this number doesn’t even include the costs of staging the actual games at all.

That’s another £2 billion hidden away in Locog, the company actually doing the getting the athletes to the stadia etc. Nor does it include the extra security, the fact that 12,000 police officers are going to be escorting the druggies
