I like the Olympics

Some people arn't happy that London got the 2012 Olympic Games. Well I am, and not just because I don't, and have no intention of ever, live in London. Yes you could do a lot of better things for the £3 billion that it will probably cost, but in the world of expensive boongoggles it is not exactly the worst at the moment. Compared to ID Cards it is possitively cheap. Based on the LSE's medium estimate of about £14billion you could buy 4 Olympic Games (say London, Glasgow, Cardif, and Exeter?) and still have change left over. At least with the Olympics there will be some good things left over from it, not something that you can say about ID Cards.
