It turns out that British Waterways have put up the price of all the moorings 15 miles around the Olympics, but provided no additional services. Talk about exploiting the situation. All the canal boat owners who normally moor on the Regents canal or in Little Venice will either have to pay the astronomical price or be forced to moor elsewhere.
Talk about bastard absentee landlords – I thought there were laws against exploitation of this kind. these Olympics are going to be renowned for their failure due to the greed involved in organising them.
