‘Olympic Food Market’ Leaves Leyton Traders £25,000 In Debt After Blunders.

I expect to see hundreds of similar “Post Olympics” stories, over the coming weeks. My real question is:

“Will the UK Government ever publish the true cost of the London Olympics, with all the marginal incremental costs included”?

As the World turns it’s attention to the Olympic Games 2016, Londoners and other UK voters, feeling the pain of the Government’s austerity strategy, will perhaps also start asking other pointed questions.

What do you think?

The article analyses the “proud to be British” mood that has resulted from the London Olympics, especially the success of the Team GB athletes etc.

 

Sadly, reality will kick-in after everybody goes home. People will switch back from the Olympics to austerity, recession and a weak UK Government. For sure, David Cameron and Boris John will seek to gain political capital.

 

I fear that there will be a big post-Olympics hangover, especially for David Cameron.
