Baroness Sue Campbell: 'We have wasted the Olympic legacy'
This was always going to be the case. This, with the numerous other
examples of the waste of taxpayer money funding the Olympics, which were
never more than an exercise in money making by the "corporate
entertainments" industry, a number of sycophantic MP's and a collection
of other public figures and "celebs" promoting themselves, has, as
predicted by many, turned out to be a gigantic waste of £billions. Some
athletes may have enjoyed the experience. Some of the public who managed
to get seats may have enjoyed it. (Why were there so many empty seats
in most of the stadiums ?) The vast majority of people however, small
traders, visitors, general public etc gained no benefit from the
Olympics at all. Just go to Weymouth as an example, and ask around.
Olympics 2012 ? A complete waste of money and resources, as predicted.
