Ha ha, that's where all the wasted money is going - to buy those medals. But who is paying for all this frivolousness? And for the cost of the congestion, lost work because people can't get to work, the police trying to keep all those terrorists away and the ice cream trebling in cost? Or is the hotel prices?

Yes well Sebastion Coe is a teacake, cut me up in traffic in Sheffield many years ago. As for Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, who is looking forward to "showing the world why London is a fantastic place to throw a party." Yea, bring a bottle, cakes and sausage rolls will be provided.
