Olympics- How To Waste Slightly Less Money.
The Olympic Games are a complete waste of money which no city anywhere ought to bid for based on any rational consideration. Whilst the idea of simply withdrawing from hosting the 2012 games is enticing it is pretty obvious that this will not happen and we are lumbered with it. Hpwever this doesn't mean we can't think of ways of reducing the cost a bit, so I'm glad to see that someone has had the obvious (to me) idea of converting the new Wembley into an athletics stadium for 2012. Much of the literature promoting the stadium over the last month has highlighted the versatility and I have seen it said that it is suitable for athletics, so by using the white elephant we already have instead of building it a mate, we can save hundreds of millions of pounds. Even if we do end up spending the money on crappy logos instead.
