Despite predictions that tourism has suffered due to the 2012 games, Jeremy Hunt has explained that we shouldn’t just be looking in the short term but the long term effect that the games will have. He has boldy predicted that an increase of 4.2 million visitors will visit these shores in the future.

I think he has his stats confused as he probably means that ebay has received 4.2 million bids on Olympic stuff that is now for sale – from Mary Poppins hats to a hanky that Wiggins wiped his nose on – people ar ebidding mad.

Greed I think is the word that embodies the Olympics, whether its the increased prices that put the tourists off or the clamber to make a fast buck on anything ‘Olympian’ that can be sold.
