Like many Londoners, I still remain scepticle about the Olympics. Not only has it cost billions of pounds while we are still getting back on our feet after a recession but the amount of security planned means that there is an increased risk of terrorism during this time. Getting in and out of London and surrounding areas will no doubt be a nightmare, making it difficult for people commuting too and from work.
Businesses are going to suffer especially theatres in the West End and apparently there may be an internet meltdown due to more people going online. I’m not surprised that a lot of people feel the way I do about the games with problem after problem. Maybe it won’t turn out to be as bad as we originally thought but we’ll just have to wait and see.
