Tina hit the nail on the head. Whilst the Olympics in London were great, the costs were obscene. Londoners who will be paying for it for years struggled to get tickets, even for 'fringe' events, whilst all the Suits, big names, and politicians showed up at all the events.
Why do they not build a permanent Olympic Stadium in Greece, to which all participating countries contribute? Better than now, when each succeeding country tries to outdo its predecessor, rather on the lines of 'mine is bigger than yours'.
Some of the money spent in the UK on the Games might then have found its way into a decent charity, rather than giving all those fat cats another nice ,free,jolly.
