So whilst the rest of the country suffers from unemployment, rising taxes (part going to the games), and an economic downturn, London just gets more and more and more.

Very nice for you. Go and stuff your pockets along with Ian but try to understand that there is still one year to go and the constant re-iteration of London, London, London from the London based media becomes tedious, not to say irritating.

Try Twenty Twelve on BBC2. That is a tremendously witty satire on the whole nonsense. Incredibly, at least two of the situations came true, long after the material was written.
Maybe in some distant you can be a little less envious of the great city of London...they will have a Warwickshire Olympics......then you can stuff your pockets also.....
