Vast overspend on the London 2012 Olympics

The Telegraph reports a vast overspend on the London 2012 Olympics. - I'll bet that comes as no surprise to anyone. By now there must be few people who believe a word that government ministers say/promise.

My personal opinion is that we should never have tendered for these Olympics. I don't know even one person who was/is in favour of having the Olympics in Britain. The claims that it would inspire youngsters to take up sport and athletics, and improve fitness and reduce obesity, were glib, ludicrous and false. Exercise does not reduce obesity, however often that claim is made and however important the person making the claim.

Let's look at some of the main official 'partners'/sponsors of the games: aha! - those well-known fit and healthy companies, Coca-Cola and McDonald’s! - They'll do a lot for children's health and fitness, to be sure!

Children's health is best served by protecting them from highly salted food like McDonald’s mainly provides, and protecting them from heavily sugared junk drinks like Coca-Cola. High salt intake in childhood is a major cause of obesity and the host of chronic illnesses that are associated with obesity.
