The White Elephant Keeps Growing

Posted by rantingkraut on March 16, 2007

The projected cost for the Olympic Games keeps racing ahead of budget. This must be one of most pointless wastes of money ever –how can you possibly spend £9.35bn just to figure out who is good at running in circles or at throwing things?

Wouldn’t it be a good idea to hold the politicians in charge personally responsible for budget overruns? The taxpayers could authorise a given amount in a referendum. Anything spent in excess should then not be their responsibility but the personal debt of the minister and senior administrators in charge.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
