Great. I'm sure we'll all benefit from this.
Could somebody explain to me how though?


LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES 2012 - THE KEY BENEFITS

WINNABILITY FOR 2012
In the UK only London has the size and status to be selected by the IOC when put up against other world cities. Paris and New York are the main threats from a number of contenders, although Vancouver winning the 2010 Winter Games will weaken any North American bid for 2012. Given that IOC President Jacques Rogge said that any bid from London would be “formidable”, London would have a good chance of success in a run-off with Paris.

BRITISH SPORT
There is a tremendous feel good factor associated with the staging of an Olympics. Both Spain and Australia achieved their highest medal tally on home soil. The inspiration will drive many of our youngsters to take part in sport and pursue dreams of becoming an Olympian.

HEALTH, CRIME & EDUCATION
Increased participation in sport will in turn lead to a healthier society. Anecdotally, participation in sport has led to downturns in youth crime and is a stimulus for education.

SOCIAL INCLUSION
The Olympics would be a driving force for breaking down divisions whether they be age, gender, race or religion. This diversity would be celebrated through the staging of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Games would be the catalyst for the drive towards a more sustainable society.

REGENERATION and NEW-HOUSING
Improved infrastructure including the provision of 4,000 new and much-needed homes in East London will be delivered. It will stimulate and bring forward the comprehensive upgrade of the East End environment by developing contaminated and under-used land.

EMPLOYMENT
Staging a Games in London would create around 9,000 new full-time jobs, of which 3,000 would be in the local East End economy. Businesses would be encouraged to relocate to the area through improved technological and transport links.

LEGACY
Provision of facilities for both elite and grass root sports with defined legacies. Up to 100 training venues will be required in the form of refurbished school and community facilities.

TOURISM
An independent study has shown that there was over £2 billion in inbound tourism spending in Australia attributable to the staging of the Olympics in 2000. The Games give a country a unique opportunity to showcase itself to a huge global audience.

UK INVESTMENT
Inward and outward UK investment, expertise and the raised profile of staging the Games would have a beneficial impact on UK exports. Staging the Sydney Games has allowed Australian companies to win 10% of the capital projects in Beijing bringing in £1.1 billion.

CONVENTION INDUSTRY
Staging the Games would provide a significant boost to the convention industry. The Premier of New South Wales reported that the Sydney Games created bookings for £233 million worth of international business conferences. Such opportunities will not be limited to London alone.

BRITISH CITIES
It is not only London that can gain, other British cities and regions would gain through the preparation and training camps for overseas teams and through the staging of the football and sailing.

Yeah, yeah, yeah..... course you are.
I thought you worked for a construction company?
A construction company would leave that sort of thing to experts normally.

The teaming behind London's bid have declared

'that the trains will run on time during the games.'

 

Maybe they'd like to tell us before declaring their psychic abilities.

So despite only winning the Olympics today, orders are in place with a main contractor and all the sub-contract package orders have all been placed?

Which construction company do you work for?

Big job for a company with a turnover of just £100m and as far as I can tell the biggest job they have done is £7.8m.

Billion's of pounds wasted, give it to the bloody frogs,and spend the money on our NHS and other worthy home needs, how much is it going to cost us tax payers?And as for the East end, when the olympics has gone in 2012 they will fill the whole area up with more immigrants that will come over and jump on the band wagon, free houses and then more burdon on our system.
