The British government is still very reluctant to come clean with the budget for the 2012 Olympic Games, saying that it has yet to be finalised.
The fact that everyone knows that it will hit at least £12BN, seems to have escaped the politicians.
However, I would ask this:
1 How is it Britain put together a bid for the Olympic Games, without having a budget?
2 Why did the IOC award the Games to Britain, if there was not a reliable budget in place?
